Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) January 11, 2016
In a report issued recently, by Time Warner Cable News featuring Allcare Physical therapy, it is estimated by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, that chronic pain is being experienced by over 100 million Americans. Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes do not equal the amount of people who live with chronic pain each year. The report indicates the need for alternative ways to deal with chronic pain besides painkiller medications.
Dr. Ofir Isaac, a Physical Therapist at Allcare Physical Therapy, specializing in chronic pain says, “Chronic pain in the medical model is being treated with high doses of painkillers, medications, injections, and even unwarranted surgeries, trips to specialists that are not necessary, patients living in severe depression,” Dr. Isaac continues by saying, “We treat what’s causing the pain, and we believe that pain is really caused by a threat, a pain somewhere in your leg or your back or your arm, we are trying to help the brain - which is processing that information - to reduce the threat to the area.”
Those seeking relief from chronic pain are advised to contact Allcare Physical Therapy over the phone for an appointment or by Skype and Google hangouts, technologies being utilized in helping counsel Dr. Isaac’s patients. Most patients can start to feel relief in as little as two sessions.
