Arm Therapy - Classic RehabCommon pain arising from sore or aching muscles is something many individuals deal with due to everyday wear and tear. Also, the natural process of aging causes injury leading to the need for physical therapy to help regain normal function. Our goal here at Classic Rehabilitation, Inc. is to identify the cause of the patient’s pain and then treat the root cause to the patient’s individual tolerance. Some symptoms we tackle include swelling, stiffness, and limitation of range of motion.
