Pain Management

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 specialist 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 or visit with RCH’s Pain Specialist:

New! – Now Offering 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. RCH is one of the first hospitals in western Kansas to offer this new service.

New! – Now Offering ASTYM and IASTYM

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.
