Chronic Pain

Maybe your pain is not because of a muscle or tendon.  Maybe it's because of a nerve entrapment. That would explain why stretches for IT Band Syndrome or Heel pain do not resolve the pain.  At CHC Physical Therapy we specialize in identifying and treating nerve entrapments.

The nervous system has to be able to move along with movement in the musculoskeletal system.  Nerve entrapments limit movement of the entrapped nerve. Pain, often attributed to muscles and tendons, is most often caused by a nerve in the area that is entrapped.  The nerve has lost its ability to slide freely with movement.  Think of the movement required in the golf swing and of the runner.

Nerve entrapments occur as a result of inflammation.  The original cause of Tennis Elbow could have been inflammation of the tendon at the elbow.  Recurrent pain in the elbow is most probably caused by a nerve entrapment.  Scar tissue formed during the inflammatory process entraps the sheath the nerve glides through.  This limits the nerves ability to glide and slide.  Every time this entrapped nerve is "yanked" on, pain and even inflammation results.

The Results...Amazing Outcomes!
