Types of Treatment
Chronic pain, or persistent pain, is pain that last for weeks, months or years.
For some, chronic pain is the result of an injury, like a sprained back, or an ongoing problem like arthritis. For others, chronic pain occurs in the absence of a past injury.
Many chronic pain conditions affect older adults. Common chronic pain complaints include headache, low back pain, arthritis pain, or neurogenic pain (pain resulting from damage to the peripheral nerves or to the central nervous system itself.)
A 2011 Global Industry Analysts, Inc. report estimates that over 1.5 billion people worldwide suffer from chronic pain, with the incidence rate increasing with age. Most chronic pain conditions affect older adults. Common chronic pain complaints include headache, low back pain, arthritis pain, or neurogenic pain (pain resulting from damage to the peripheral nerves or to the central nervous system itself).

Here’s what some of our patients had to say
All Star physical therapy really was knowledgeable and attentive during the recovery of my knee replacement. The PT and staff of assistants were encouraging, and gentle. With every visit my range of movement improved, very impressive. I would highly recommend All Star physical therapy.
Couldn’t be happier with this place! This group takes their time to listen to the client and really assess their particular needs. They work with you to come up with an individualized treatment plan that works and everybody on the team helps follow that through! Highly recommend.
Incredibly grateful that I was referred to All Star Physical Therapy by my insurance. To see a great Physical Therapist who is not only close to home but is also knowledgeable, personable, & empathetic to all of my aches and pains, is a real plus for me.
I don’t know where I would be today without the help of All Star Physical Therapy – in all likelihood significantly disabled. Today, my quality of life is enormously improved, thanks to the knowledgeable competence, genuine caring, and constant encouragement of the staff at All Star.
I have nothing but great things to say about the physical therapists, assistants and receptionists at All Star Physical Therapy. They are exceptionally talented physical therapists and have greatly helped me in my rehab since having hip surgery. Thanks to everyone.
This is an amazing group of people who passionately care . From the front desk to the therapist and all the staff that you encounter. They should call the office five Star instead of All Star. I feel so much better, I just wish I hadn’t waited so long to start!
