Chronic Pain Solutions Since 1990

Chronic Pain Solutions Since 1990
Corrective Care Specializes in the Diagnosis and Trea
hen looking for relief from an ongoing pain problem, you may be
faced with many treatment alternatives. Traditional treatments—
including medication, hot/cold therapy and other therapeutic
techniques—only offer limited relief.
The key to long-term pain relief is to correct the underlying cause of the
problem. This is the Corrective Care difference. Since 1990, Corrective Care
has successfully treated thousands of patients with a wide variety of acute and
chronic pain issues.
A Successful Blend Of Traditional And
Progressive Procedures
By bridging the gap between mainstream and complementary
medicine, we have successfully blended traditional medicine
with progressive treatment procedures. This unique blend
produces consistently positive results—often reducing the need
for additional, more costly treatment options.
Once the cause of the pain has been identified, we select
treatment procedures that enhance the body’s natural ability to
heal. Every treatment plan is designed to help the patient achieve
these important objectives:
A Holistic Approach To Chronic Pain
Pain problems can affect an individual at any age. It can be a
result of a recent injury, an old injury that never healed properly,
a surgical procedure or changes in the body as a person ages.
The professionals at Corrective Care take the “whole person”
approach to diagnosing and treating a pain problem. Instead of
just focusing on a symptom, we regard the body as an integrated
whole. We approach each case with an understanding of how an
injury or pain in one part of the body can affect other parts of the
body as well.

atment of Difficult Pain Problems
Progressive Treatment For Pain-Free Living
Did you know that weak ligaments and tendons are two of the greatest sources of chronic pain?
Weak ligaments can cause joints to become unstable and cause pain. Injection therapy has proven
to be an effective, long-term solution.
Corrective Care provides a variety of progressive injection therapies to treat specific pain
problems. Injection therapy has been used to successfully treat conditions such as:
•Achilles tendon tear
•Ligaments and cartilage (torn)
•Low back pain
•Carpal tunnel syndrome
•Musculoskeletal problems
•Degenerative arthritis
•Neck pain
•Degenerative disc
•Rotator cuff tear
•Foot and ankle pain
•Hip pain
•Tennis elbow
•Knee pain
•Wrist pain from repetitive motion
Med-X machines provide an effective means
of isolating, testing and strengthening the
muscles in the lower back and neck.
•Ligaments and tendons
(partially torn)
Injection therapy is often combined with physical
therapy and/or postural re-training. It is critical
to re-train muscles that have been weakened and
injured so they can once again move joints properly
during normal activities.
Injection therapy options include:
•Facet joint injection
•Fluoroscopic-guided injection
The DRS System™ is a non-surgical solution proven to be 78%
effective in relieving low back pain.
•Nerve blocks (including intercostal,
median, occipital and suprascapular)
•Ozone injection
•Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injection
•Sacroiliac (SI) joint injection
•Tendon and ligament injections
•Trigger point injection
•Ultrasound-guided injection
Pilates-based exercise offers specialized treatment options. Gentle low weight bearing movements
help enhance flexibility, improve circulation and strengthen muscle mass without stressing joints.

link physical medicine and physical rehabilitation for consistent, positive
results. Patients receive individual attention every visit.
