Utilization of adjunctive treatment such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation in order to better assist the healing process.
The Novant Health Pain Rehabilitation Program is an intensive Mind-Body approach to manage a patient's pain. The goal of the program is to decrease the intensity, frequency, and/or duration of a patient's pain but, more importantly, for the patients to be independent in managing their pain issues and to increase their quality of life.
Typically, patients attend the program 4 days/week for 4 weeks, 4 hours each day (frequency and duration planned based on our evaluations). Patients attend physical therapy for the first 3 hours for therapeutic exercise, nutritional counseling, posture and body mechanics training, diaphragmatic breathing and relaxation training; and gentle movement techniques for management of flare-ups. The last hour the patient attends group psychological counseling including behavioral and cognitive therapy, depression and stress management, including family counseling, and coping skill enhancement. Individual counseling sessions are scheduled as needed and may include family counseling.
Utilization of patient education and exercise in order to maximize the control surrounding the spine and improve functional ability.
Patient and Family Education
Education to the patient and family to empower their involvement both in the recovery process and for future prevention of re-injury.
