About

The St. Luke’s Hospital Rehab and Pain Center takes a holistic and patient-centered approach to the treatment of acute and chronic pain by restoring function, increasing quality of life and empowering patients to take an active role in their health and wellness.

Who we are:

We are a team of multidisciplinary providers who are passionate about helping individuals navigate their pain journey to live full and meaningful lives. Our empathic team will take time to get to know you and create an individualized pain management plan that takes into consideration biological, psychological and social factors that may influence your pain. Our skilled team of providers uses both medicine and non-medicine treatments, and evidenced-based interventions to help you feel understood, validated and in more control of your pain. Our talented group of providers come from various medical backgrounds including physiatry (rehabilitation medicine), health/pain psychology, podiatry (foot/lower extremity pain), nursing, physical and occupational therapy, and care coordination.

The Rehab and Pain Center takes a comprehensive, multidisciplinary and coordinated approach to pain management.

Biomedical

Biomedical treatments include various classes of medications and interventional procedures, such as injections. Your provider will work closely with you to establish an individualized treatment plan based on your pain condition, medical factors/co-morbidities, physical exam and other factors. It is our belief and philosophy that there is always a treatment modality that can help alleviate your pain or increase your functioning. We will also work closely with you to review the potential costs and benefits of all biomedical treatments.

Mind-Body
Mind-Body treatments, or behavioral health approaches, focus on helping you understand how thinking, behavior and emotional patterns may impact your experience of pain. Individuals with pain often feel disconnected from others which can lead to feelings of hopelessness, helplessness and depression. Our group-based treatments include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), clinical hypnosis and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). In these groups you will learn important skills to effectively cope with and manage your pain. Our group facilitators are experts in creating a welcoming and safe environment that will allow you to feel connected and supported by your fellow group members.
Restorative

Restorative treatments at the Rehab and Pain Center are delivered by expert physical and occupational therapists who have extensive training in the biological basis of pain, body-mechanics and therapeutic exercise. Along with therapeutic exercises and strengthening, physical and occupational therapists offer individuals with pain a wide range of therapeutic modalities to enhance quality of life and activities of daily living (ADLs).

Complementary & Alternative Approaches
There are many complementary or alternative approaches to pain management that are effective in reducing pain and enhancing quality of life. The Rehab and Pain Center is working to bring new complementary treatments to patients in the greater Cedar Rapids area.

What can you expect at your first visit?

All new patients will attend an initial one-hour orientation class that will provide information about the purpose and goals of the center, along with the multitude of treatments that are offered. Your insurance will typically cover the cost of this orientation class. During the class we will also screen for other factors that may impact or influence your experience of pain such as anxiety, depression and other stressors. This screening is critically important in creating an individualized and effective treatment plan. Additionally, the class is an opportunity for you to hear about ALL of the various treatments offered through the Rehab and Pain Center. Following your visit we will coordinate all your pain management treatments, communicate your treatment plan with your providers and help you navigate the various facets of your care.

Our program may be a good fit for you if you have experienced any of the following:

  • Difficulty feeling in control of your pain
  • Feeling that no one understands your pain or your medical situation
  • Challenges with behavioral pacing, such as pushing too hard with activities and being “laid up” for several days
  • Fearful that when you engage in activity you will cause more pain or hurt yourself
  • Isolate yourself or avoid interactions with others as you are tired of talking to people who do not understand your pain
  • Feel like the emotional side of your pain has not been addressed
  • Frustration about your decrease in functioning and lack of engagement in enjoyable life activities
  • Strong desire to regain function and control of your life
