With a doctor’s referral for assessment and treatment of your pain condition, CPRC can help you learn to manage, cope and effectively control your pain through physical therapy, psychological services and medication management. No one approach, be it physical therapy or psychological counseling, can achieve the highest level of pain control without the other. Anyone who suffers from chronic pain is likely to experience a certain amount of psychological trauma and emotional distress, which in turn may worsen the existing physical condition.

Our treatment plans typically include physical therapy, psychological therapy, aquatics, nutrition, massage, physical exercises, stretching, yoga, medication management, biofeedback, relaxation training and group therapy. In combination, each modality overlaps and provides a poignant effect on the patient’s future physical ability and psychological coping skills. As the Chronic Pain Recovery Center uses this multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary approach to treating the “Whole person”, the patient will have the best functional and pain control outcomes possible.


Aquatic Therapy is a specialized type of rehabilitation. It combines the beneficial physical properties of the water with skilled professional intervention to speed your recovery and maximize your outcome. Our indoor, private pool is maintained at a therapeutically warm 92˚-95˚F, year-round. Depth ranges from 3-6 feet with a gentle slope. A variety of pool equipment is available to incorporate into your treatment. Changing rooms, a bathroom and rinse off shower are conveniently located in the pool area. The pool size is perfect for 1:1 treatment as well as small group sessions.

-Decreases muscle guarding

-Increases circulation

-Buoyancy allows for assistance as will as resistance with exercise

Physical therapy can help you maximize your movement, manage pain, avoid surgery and prescription drugs, manage chronic (long-term) conditions, and recover from and prevent (future) injury.

Physical therapy helps people manage chronic pain and improve movement problems. At CPRC you’ll receive care that’s specific to your goals, your body, and your lifestyle. Our physical therapist and physical therapist assistants work with each other, you, and other health care providers, to develop strategies that can help you achieve your goals, as well as ensure every patient receives the best care possible. This empowers patients to take an active role in their care. Each individual has a treatment plan designed to address their specific needs, challenges, and goals.

Physical therapy helps to reduce the symptoms of many chronic conditions. It also can keep many problems from getting worse. Physical therapy can help you avoid the need for some medications and even surgery.


Psychological treatment is emphasized in our chronic pain program to treat psychological, emotional, social, and personality factors which interfere with the patient’s ability to cope with pain. These underlying psychological concerns often reduce compliance with post surgical restrictions, which could lead to a poor surgical outcomes or re-injury, necessitating additional surgical intervention. In addition to post- surgical compliance, the behavioral medicine program addresses any patient tendency toward unrealistic expectations concerning the medical profession. Frequent patient mis-perceptions include an expectation of a complete recovery following surgical intervention, an anticipation of total pain relief, and a hope that they will make a full recovery and return to their prior level of physical functioning.  The program also addresses patients with pain extending beyond the primary intervention phase of 0-3 months who continue to demonstrate significant impairment in their daily functioning and failure to return to work and/or progress adequately in their healthcare treatment.

How do I say “thank you” for all that I gain from this program? I say thank you to Dr. Bricken, Dr. Alianell, Russ for getting me on the road of recovery.  Ms. Jessica is truly amazing with pushing you for your best greatness, Ms. Ladine is the mother of comforting touch, Ms Jen is a walking book of information that is helpful on your journey to fight for your rights. Every front office staff, nutritionist, is amazing, helpful, and kind. Ms. Leah is warm and kind, very helpful with your process.
Thank you for making me feel welcome and being a part of my life journey.

Love that I was able to come to therapy here the staff and the best and help u so much in what u need. I went in there with a walker and day 1 I was able to get off that walker and walk with a cane. And by the end of the week I was even able to get off the cane and they also show me how to relax doing other stuff like I feel in love with drawing and painting picture and that’s something I still do till this day thanks to the staff at chronic pain center.

If I could I would love to go back and do more therapy longer there thank you for the staff there for everything they did for me and help me with.

You guys are so awesome.  Not only did you improve my physical, y’all helped so much mentally!  If you’re reading this, this is the spot!!! Use it!  The resources are so needed.  Jen is a resource herself.

This is an amazing place.  If YOU do the work and work the program!  I am leaving here well equipped to manage my pain.  Listen, listen, listen, and pay attention in group and you will learn a wealth of information.  I am also leaving very sad as I made so many connections here.  Please get to know the other clients in your class as many unlikely relationships will develop.  I love CPRC!!

Jane D.

I will actually miss it here.  I couldn’t imagine a better place to recover.  The staff here is remarkable.  I wish I could stay here!  If you are reading this and you are a staff member… I will miss you and thank you so much for everything, it has been a wonderful experience.  If you are a patient: don’t give up.  There is hope!  And this place will help if you let it.

Diana J.

Everyone here was so nice and supportive.

I’m glad I was able to improve my pain and ability to do more than when I first arrived.

Leslie M.

The program works, try everything, and find what works for you.  I’m able to walk farther and faster.  I can even swim again, which I couldn’t do at the start of the program.  If it were my choice I’d give everyone a raise.  Jessica is the PT guru, very knowledgeable about the body and improving your overall well being.  Jen is the WC guru and she will get you paid.  Rachel is awesome in all things chill whether it be painting, puzzles, mindfulness, and calming the mind, body, and that transcends to your soul. Brannon keeps you pumped about anything and everything.  Brooke is just the sweetest, and she always has a smile tucked away for you.  Best Support Team Ever!!!!

When I first started this program it was a struggle to do anything.  My pain was unbearable, but thanks to CPRC, I’m getting my life back and able to enjoy life once more.  The staff was amazing and showed me so much low and compassion.  Thanks to Jen, Jessica, Ladine, Leah, Rachel, and Mrs. Rita.  I will truly miss you sweet ladies, this isn’t goodbye, but see you soon.  Dr. Bricken and Dr. Alianell thanks for allowing me to participate in this program, and experiencing everything it did help me get back to life.

I love how welcoming everyone was.  Ms. Rita’s massages were THE ABSOLUTE BEST! I wish I didn’t have to leave.  Thank you guys so much for welcoming me, helping me, and showing empathy.  Forever family.

Jaime J.

The program from start to finish was exceptional. It was the first time in almost a year that I felt my injury, pain, and other obstacles were addressed. I am truly grateful from the bottom of my heart for all that each and every one of you poured into me. I give all the glory to God and He uses each and every one of you in a mighty way and I feel so grateful and blessed to have you involved with my recovery. Thank you.

All the staff were so wonderful and professional in their work and in helping me with my injuries. It was unbelievable and I was shown how to overcome and how to manage my pain as well as get rid of a big part of the pain I had.  The aquatic therapy played a big part in me managing my pain as well as all the exercises that I had on machines.  I was watched over by Jessica who made sure I was going at it the right way and she walked with me to make sure I would be ok on my 2 mile walk.  CPRC made me have a different outlook on not getting better.  It was unbelievable how the staff helped me get on the road to recovery and you all had a part in it.

Lavon S.

One of the best places for physical therapy! Employees here take there time to work with you on 1 to 1 bases, the heated pool is awesome and the facility is always clean. Highly recommended!
