I am a retired Occupational Therapist. So after 29 years of practice and a knee replacement, I pretty much knew what to look for in a P.T. I wanted a P.T. who had become a therapist because he/she truly wanted to help someone overcome a physical/mental challenge that had disrupted their life regardless of age or diagnoses. That way I would be assured that they would be intent on keeping their treatment skills current and their focus would be on the patient, not feeding their own ego. I wanted a clinic environment that was clean, cheerful and bright with highly trained aides who were consistently supervised by their therapist. And I wanted a therapist who had a good sense of humor because laughter is a powerful healer especially when you’re a patient like me who can’t tolerate pain meds! My doctor’s office recommended a local “sports” clinic which I tried and much to my dismay, I experienced assembly line care infused with locker room stench. Everyone got the same treatment! I then found Focus Physical Therapy which more than satisfied all of my “requirements”. I thank everyone at Focus for being true professionals and healers! Nona was my primary P.T. and she was so very caring, used a hands on approach and provided me with individualized treatment that surpassed my expectations and translated into helping my gait and using my leg in all of my daily activities. She has stellar clinical skills. Even my doctor was impressed with my progress. I also saw Shannon, and she too, is an excellent therapist. The aides, Andrina, Arya, Jonathan and Nadia are also highly skilled, kind, funny, and watched every move I made while exercising to insure I did all correctly plus they are well supervised by the P.T.s and can readily spot problems a patient is having and seek guidance from the P.T.s. What more can a person ask for in a P.T. clinic? Not much!!! Always remember: Your P.T. is your guide and she/he is only as good as the effort you put into the journey.

Tips & Advices
Several forms of pain management exist that are not approved typically treated by physicians or covered by health insurance plans. These include therapies like acupuncture, for example, or herbal preparations sold in stores. Before beginning any form of treatment or medication not approved by a doctor, it’s a good idea to still reach out to a physician or expert in alternative medicine for advice, or conduct some research online first.
Managing pain in children can be complicated, as kids may have more difficulty communicating their pain to doctors. Children also need to be more carefully monitored when taking most medications.
Health insurance might cover a selection of approved pain management therapies. Every insurance plan is different, so patients should check with their provider to make sure.
Patients might be instructed to continue therapy at home, either through regular exercise or specific treatment. Some people also find that getting frequent rest, taking warm baths or avoiding certain foods, for example, can help manage pain.
Side effects depend on the exact drugs and dosages used, as well as the disease being treated and many other factors. Some pain-relieving drugs, especially opioids, are known to cause drowsiness. Many antidepressants also cause a variety of adverse effects. Doctors must work closely with patients to minimize these side effects in the course of treatment.
