UM Pain leverages all treatment options to reduce pain, improve activity and restore well-being. Together with other strategies like interventional therapies, medication and counseling, physical therapy for pain management can enable you to take on your daily activities with renewed strength.  

The benefits of physical therapy—improving strength, mobility and flexibility— can help alleviate both physical and emotional aspects of your pain. 

Physical therapy uses mechanical equipment, exercise therapy and electrotherapy to promote mobility and function. Physical therapists play an important role in managing chronic pain by administering treatments that can help you improve your ability to function on a day-to-day basis.
