Dealing with chronic pain isn’t something that anyone wants to do, but it’s something that far too many women in the U.S. must do.
Helping women address chronic pain causes like fibromyalgia is one goal of women’s physical therapy, and there are multiple ways that practitioners of this type of physical therapy work to address chronic pain.
Three ways women’s physical therapy can help women address chronic pain:
- Educating — One of the best ways that women can fight back against chronic pain is to learn more about what’s causing it. Each cause is different, which means treatments and daily modifications are often different.
Women’s physical therapy plans are designed to help women learn as much as possible about the cause of their chronic pain. Additionally, physical therapists with this speciality seek to help you learn how to modify your daily routines in ways that can help decrease your pain.
- Treating — Physical therapists know that treatments can best help people with chronic pain when they’re personalized to each patient. The physical therapists who specialize in women’s health also have many treatment techniques at their disposal, including:
- Preventing — Chronic pain often flares up regularly, but help from a physical therapist can help women reduce the number of flare-ups they experience. In some cases, your physical therapist may be able to address an underlying issue that’s triggering long-term pain, which can help prevent long spells of pain in the future.
