Pain can be frustrating and debilitating. Depression can also be classified as chronic and acute pain. Acute pain starts suddenly and is sharp pain. If severe pain is not treated early, it can become chronic. Chronic pain is the type of pain that lasts longer than 6 months. Chronic pain is persistent and can be severe. Chronic pain negatively affects your quality of life, work performance, relationships, and overall health. It is essential to get proper treatment as soon as possible. There are various treatment options including therapies, medications, and mind-body techniques.

At Physical Healthcare of Jacksonville we specialize in…

Non-Opioid Pain Management: We specialize in Small and Large Joint, Trigger Point, Plantar Fascia, Carpal Tunnel, Nerve, and Neuropathy injections.

Non-Surgical Joint Care: We use a Hyaluronic Acid based product, which is naturally derived, to supplement what has been lost in the knee joint due to Osteoarthritis. Hyaluronic Acid is found naturally in the knee and deteriorates over time. Our Joint Care treatment replaces the natural lubricant to possibly prevent the need for a total knee replacement.

Advanced Cold Laser Pain Therapy: Infrared Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that increases circulation, oxygenation, and nutrient flow to a damaged area. Laser Therapy reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain in joints and muscles by interacting with tissues at the cellular level.

Spinal Decompression: A nonsurgical, alternative treatment for disc related disorders of the spine. Decompression therapy involves gentle tractioning of the spine, providing significant pain relief for sciatica, lower back, neck, degenerative discs, cervical and lumbar pain.

Orthopedic Support Bracing and Durable Medical Equipment: We provide our patients with long-lasting, personally fitted orthopedic support braces to stabilize, support, protect, and correct injuries or abnormal alignment.

Regenerative Cell Therapy: The body utilizes a variety of tissue and cell interactions to support the healing process. Our cell and tissue allografts supplement similar tissue in the body via scaffolding, growth factors, cytokines, and mesenchymal cells. The cell allograft is administered to the area of injury or degeneration, commonly the knee, neck, spine, or shoulder, to help repair damage, reduce pain, and improve range of motion.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP): PRP Therapy is a form of regenerative medicine using a patient’s own plasma to treat joint, tendon, muscle, and ligament injuries, as well as, cartilage degeneration, and a wide variety of chronic and neurologic conditions. Patients heal 2-5 times faster with the use of PRP therapy.

Physical Therapy: physical therapy can provide you with long term pain relief. It offers progressive, but long-lasting pain relief. Physical therapy involves soft tissue and joint work, taping or braces, ultrasound healing, and electric stimulation.

Chiropractic: The goal of chiropractic care is to ease the pain and to increase the range of motion in the affected area. It can help you manage chronic lower back pain, headaches, foot and hand pain, bone and muscle pain in shoulders and neck.

Hot and Cold Treatment: heat and cold treatments are easy to perform and very comfortable. You can do this at home also. Heat relaxes the muscles and cold reduces the swelling. It can help you control arthritis pain, overlying muscle soreness and herniated disc pain.

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation: it uses an electric current to diminish the pain. It uses a device that sends currents to the painful area through skin patches. It feels like a slight muscle twitch or a soothing electric sensation.
