Frequently Asked Questions About Eliminating Chronic Pain
Do I really have to do my exercises every day?
YES. Your central nervous system has developed specific muscle patterning to compensate for your dysfunctions. In order to change that, you must stimulate new muscle patterns on a daily basis.
Will my exercises make me sore?
Your path to success may include ups and downs. Occasionally the exercises may cause some delayed muscle soreness as you begin to integrate new muscle patterning.
Does insurance cover Pain Free with Oscar therapy?
NO. During your appointment your specific set of sequenced exercises will be determined by a posture evaluation, biomechanics assessment, gait analysis, and functional tests. Pain Free with Oscar is not a medical facility. A medical diagnosis will NOT be made as we do not accept or bill your insurance.
