Category: Pelvic Pain, Women's Health Services

Pelvic Pain Treatment in Atlanta GAChronic pelvic pain is a condition that affects many women each year. The pain is generally spread throughout the entire pelvic region rather than found in a specific spot. Chronic pelvic pain resides in the area below the belly button and between the hips, and it lasts longer than six months. While there are cases when chronic pelvic pain can be a symptom of another disease, chronic pelvic pain can be a condition in its own right and needs to be treated properly to find relief. Many women may never receive a specific diagnosis that explains their pain, but that does not mean that the condition is not treatable. At Sovereign Rehabilitation our licensed physical therapists work to find a treatment that focuses on managing the pain so that patients can return to their active lifestyles.

Category: Orthopedic and Sports Therapy, Pinched Nerve

Pinched Nerve Treatment in Atlanta GANeuritis is the inflammation of nerves within the spine that causes pain and numbness to the areas that the nerves travel to within the body. Nerve roots exit out both sides of the spine column along its entire length. These nerve roots travels to all the different parts of the body. When a nerve in the spine is pinched or inflamed it can radiate pain to areas that are far away from the actual nerve itself. Nerves from the thoracic (middle) spine extend to the upper abdominal area as well as the back, neck, and area between the shoulders. Lumbar nerves extend through the lower back, gluteal muscles, upper thigh, calf, and down into the foot. Pain or numbness can be felt in any of the areas in which the nerves travel. Sciatica is the most common form of pain lumbar neuritis.

Dry Needling Treatments in Atlanta GAThere are a variety of musculoskeletal problems that can be treated with various methods. Headaches, hip and knee pain, fibromyalgia, tennis and golf elbow, neck and back pain, sciatica, tendinitis and other issues can all be treated by licensed physical therapists. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, our licensed physical therapists offer different methods for treating pain. One of our treatment options is called Dry Needling, and many patients have found the pain relief that they are looking for from this simple technique.

Dry Needling involves the insertion of a thin filament needle to stimulate the healing process of soft tissues and trigger points that result in pain relief and restoration of healthy physiology. A trigger point is a hyperirritable point in skeletal muscle that is associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule. There are many medical studies that support the effectiveness of dry needling for improving pain control, reducing muscle tension, normalizing biochemical and electrical dysfunction of motor endplates, and facilitating an accelerated return to active rehabilitation. Most people report that they do not feel the insertion of the needle.

Work Conditioning

 

Category: Physical Therapy, Workplace Injuries

Work Conditioning Program in Atlanta GAFor most work related injuries, employees find that they may need conventional physical therapy and will quickly recover and return to their normal working environment. However, for some the injury can be so severe and require an extended recovery time that the injured worker becomes de-conditioned and his or her endurance must be reconditioned to handle the critical demands of the job. For those patients who are not able to return to work promptly after recovering from an injury, Sovereign Rehabilitation offers a work conditioning program. This program specifically addresses the deficits in strength, endurance, flexibility, coordination, and function needed to achieve a full return to work.

Damage to the medial collateral ligament will result in pain, stiffness, swelling, tenderness, and a feeling that the knee will give way under the pressure of standing or walking. At Sovereign Rehabilitation our trained and licensed physical therapists can help patients with an MCL injury find relief from their symptoms so that they can return to an active lifestyle.
