A special testimonial from Carol E., who chose Maplewood of Sauk Prairie for her rehabilitation is Sauk Prairie Wisconsin

 

 

Testimonial:

So when we fooled around for three years and the pain couldn’t handle anymore, my primary doctor finally got a special, what do you call it, contract so that I could go to a different hospital with my insurance that they would agree to pay for.

And Medicare. Okay. When she did that, I thought, well, maybe I could be selfish and ask if I could go to rehab at Maplewood because Mom was here a few years ago. They did a fine job with her. And I wanted it to be close for Roger so he didn’t have so far to drive, okay? It was everything I expected and more, besides. Not just staff, but the patients. I’ve made so many nice people…met them here, and had such a good time talking. It’s really eased my surgery.

And the cooperation here with me and how I’m feeling and concern for my wishes is unbelievable. I’ve never experienced it before anywhere else and it’s great. So basically, I was fortunate enough to be able to go home part of everyday for the last week and spend it with my husband. Then he’d bring me back. My curfew was 8:00. Been a lot of years since I’ve had a curfew but it was fine. And they’ve done a great job. Now, when this one’s healed completely and it’s onto the next one I’m definitely coming back here.

Experiencing pain or dealing with a painful condition can be very difficult.  Some may go through long term pain from a chronic problem while others may be trying to live with pain that started with a recent injury.

Either way, there are times when your pain can be improved or resolved with the help of a physical therapist.  Often, physical therapy and rehabilitation is utilized in conjunction with treatment from your medical provider.

How Can a Physical Therapist Help With Pain

Pain is often caused when joint, tissues, or nerves have been irritated in some fashion.  New injuries, like a sprained ankle, can cause swelling and irritation in the area leading to pain.  Chronic conditions, such as arthritis, can cause inflammation in the area of a joint also causing discomfort.

Physical therapists can help with painful conditions by evaluating a patient, getting an understanding of what is causing the pain, and providing customized rehabilitation services to improve or resolve the problem.

Physical therapy involves providing specialized treatment such as improving flexibility, reducing spasm, decreasing inflammation, or educating the patient in proper movement and prevention techniques.

In addition to manual therapy provided by the physical therapist, you may also receive passive therapies such as ice, heat, ultrasound, or muscle stimulation.
