Dr. Parenteau uses all of the tools available to him in order to get patients to overcome their physical problems. Office visits are at the same cost regardless of which (and sometimes all) of these licensed treatments are applied to you, the patient, in order to cure — not manage — your pain and limitations:

  • home exercise prescriptions
  • ergonomic education (i.e.: how to sit, lift and act safely at work)
  • ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, heat, ice (the full scope of physiotherapy options)
  • in-clinic, supervised exercise rehabilitation
  • the full scope of manual therapy:  1.) athletic therapy stretching 2.) sports massage (myofascial release) 3.) joint mobilization 4.) joint manipulation

The goal of Dr. Parenteau Pain Relief & Rehabilitation is to help patients overcome their symptoms and limitations, not to simply keep them in a revolving door of on going treatment with no end. Please see our testimonial page as well as some of our testimonial videos:
