The use of physical and psychological approaches to prevent, reduce, manage or stop pain sensations, in order to keep children as free of pain as possible without the use of medicine.
The Occupational and/or Physical Therapist uses a variety of non-invasive therapeutic techniques individually designed to meet the needs of the child. These therapeutic techniques may include electrical stimulation, therapeutic exercise, relaxation techniques (biofeedback, guided imagery, healing touch, aromatherapy), heat/cold applications, massage and other hands-on treatment. In addition, the therapist works with the child and family to develop a home program to manage the child's pain.
