Pain Rehabilitation

Personalized Diet / Exercise Program

Diet and exercise programs focus on improving your health through a nutritional plan and by a customized exercise program. Our pain management center provides our patients with a diet and exercise program customized to their individual needs and condition. Diet and exercise programs are available individually or through our comprehensive pain rehabilitation services which may just be the key to living your life with relief from chronic pain or pain exacerbations, or to be as pain free as possible.

Diet for Chronic Pain Relief
What you eat can actually affect your level of pain. For example, studies show that patients who are overweight are known to produce high levels of cytokines, C-reaction, and other pro-inflammatory chemicals in their fatty tissue, which is an endocrine (hormone-producing) organ. These substances promote joint and tissue inflammation and damage and thus, increase pain. With our interdisciplinary approach to pain rehabilitation, our pain management physicians will develop a simple-to-follow personalized diet plan that helps you lose weight, relieve pain, sleep better, and feel great.

Exercise for Pain Relief
Exercise is an active and creative form of pain rehabilitation centered on helping patients avoid stiffness and weakness, minimize the recurrence of pain, and reduce the severity and duration of possible future pain exacerbations. Depending on the type of your pain whether acute or chronic, and the location of your pain (knee, joint, lower back, neck, shoulders, etc), your program may include various exercises geared towards muscle strengthening and stretching. Our physical medicine physicians are also specially trained to devise an exercise program appropriate for you and your condition.

A proper diet and an exercise regimen can reduce pain and improve debilitating conditions; thus, improve your quality of life. Additionally, patients may find that not only are their general physical condition and pain improved, but they also have a more positive psychological outlook. Stop letting pain limit your potential; start living life to the fullest.
