Here at Haym Salomon Home, we offer non-pharmacological approaches to pain management such as Ultrasound, Electrical Stimulation, Therapeutic Use of Massage, Manual Therapy and most recently Kinesiology Taping.
Most of the time doctors always start with recommending a non-pharmacological pain management approach, which is a more conservative treatment. Nowadays, with opioids under a lot of scrutiny, it is very important for a facility to offer alternatives.
As I have mentioned, we most recently introduced the use of Kinesiology Taping as an adjunct to our pain management program. I contacted a representative of the brand KT tape, explained to them how it can benefit the almost untapped world of Geriatric population. They sent us samples of their products. Kinesiology Taping if appropriate, can also be used for joint instabilities.
Even though, a big chunk of our caseload is in the geriatric population, we, at Haym Salomon Home, also offer treatment approaches for any work and sports related injuries and/or deficits.
