Persistent Pain Relief
Physiotherapy as the Solution to Persistent Pain
Persistent pain can be categorized as any ache, soreness, tenderness, irritation, stiffness or discomfort that lasts for three or more months. People may experience persistent pain for many reasons. It’s actually what 30% of people seek medical care for from their family physicians . Persistent pain can decrease a person’s quality of life by creating opioid dependence, limiting their physical and social activities, and cause them to experience bouts of depression or anxiety.
But I already tried physiotherapy, and it didn’t work!
If you are suffering from pain, but haven’t tried a clinic that uses manual therapy, movement control coaching and strengthening, and dry needling, or your therapist only spent 10 minutes with you before handing you off to a high school student for your ultrasound, you are an excellent candidate for physiotherapy treatment at Amped. You haven’t tried us!

Can physiotherapy really relieve pain?
Physiotherapy aims to relieve pain by discovering the cause of it right off the bat instead of covering up symptoms with expensive (and addictive) medications.
Our physiotherapists here at Amped Physiotherapy are professionally trained experts when it comes to movement and diagnosing physical problems. They know how to properly treat underlying structural causes surrounding those conditions. Each of our patients receives a thorough physical evaluation, where we analyze areas of the body that need improved strength or motor control, focus on joints with limited range of motion, and detect imbalances with movement. All of this aids with pinpointing the underlying causes of your persistent pain.
Your physiotherapist will write up a personalized treatment plan just for you. This might include specialized manual therapy techniques that will assist with restoring joint movement and soft tissue mobility, pain relieving stretches, and targeted strengthening routines to increase your muscle strength. Your treatment plan will consist of in-clinic treatments, but your therapist will also teach you plenty of things you can do at home to make sure you’re staying active and healthy!So, what are you waiting for? If you’re ready to stop dealing with persistent pain issues, contact Amped Physiotherapy to schedule your own consultation. Our physiotherapists are ready and available to meet with you and get started on increasing your quality of life with long-lasting pain relief.
