Pain Management

Pain Managment

Rooks County Health Center is dedicated to treating those who suffer from pain. We empathize with the burden chronic pain creates for you and those closest to you. RCH provides an array of life-changing, non-invasive, and non-opioid-based pain treatments.

RCH’s pain specialists and therapists are trained in the most technologically advanced, minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic services currently available to provide effective and innovative pain management solutions. Our goal is to help patients reduce their chronic pain, eliminate their dependence on drugs and return to an independent lifestyle.

Whether your pain is persistent pain or pain experienced as a result of a recent medical procedure, RCH’s trained staff works closely with your primary care physician to assess the cause of your pain and find the best treatment option. You may even be able to begin treatment during your initial visit.

Through a number of RCH’s programs, you can overcome pain to live a fuller life even potentially avoid costly, intrusive procedures in the future. If you experience pain or discomfort, the first step is having a conversation with your doctor.

Holistic Pain Management

Holistic Pain Management provides a multi-faceted approach to treating a wide range of pain types for a variety of patient types with their personal goals in mind.

Return to Everyday Life – Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy focuses on helping people regain the ability to perform functional activities that are meaningful and enjoyable. RCH’s Occupational Therapist helps patients to not only improve their basic motor functions and reasoning abilities after a stroke or cognitive injury, but also to compensate for permanent loss of function. The goal is to help patients lead independent, productive and satisfying lives.

Dry Needling

Experience Dry Needling, the innovative approach that helps release muscle tissues and relieve pain without the use of medication. Dry needling doesn’t just treat pain symptoms, instead it addresses the actual cause of pain. Professionally trained physical therapists use thin needles inserted into trigger points to relief tension and restore function. 


Astym® and IASTYM treatments regenerate healthy soft tissues while removing undesirable scar tissue which may be causing you pain or restriction in your movement. The success of this treatment is that it resolves the underlying cause of soft tissue problems, rather than just providing temporary relief of symptoms. It is proven effective for tendinopathies, scar tissue problems and other soft tissue dysfunctions. In order to determine whether IASTYM treatments are right for you, visit with your doctor or one of RCH’s Astym® Certified Physical Therapists at 785.688.4425.
