Most people think of physical therapy as a post-injury or post-surgery rehabilitation process. But physical therapy can also help alleviate chronic pain. People suffering from osteoarthritis, oro-facial pain, neuropathies, fibromyalgia, headaches and more can find relief with pain management physical therapy treatment.
Pain management physical therapy jobs employ a variety of techniques to treat chronic pain. Massages, ultrasounds and lasers are common forms of treatment, in addition to traditional physical therapy movement and exercise techniques. Physical therapists work closely with their patients to identify the source of pain and then develop a treatment plan with their health issues and physical abilities in mind.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, physical therapy jobs are expected to grow 39% by 2020. The aging baby boomer generation will lead to an increased elderly population, many of whom will experience chronic pain, illnesses and injuries that require physical therapy.
