We know that CHRONIC PAIN TAKES THE JOY OUT OF LIFE. It makes you feel dull and disconnected from the people, places, and activities you love. That’s why WE PROMISE TO do more for you than just ELIMINATE YOUR PAIN We promise to HELP YOU GET BACK to a more ACTIVE, INDEPENDENT, HAPPIER life.

At Arancia Physical Therapy we love to help people in their 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and above, get back to living the life they deserve. Which means a life free from painkillers, where you don’t have to worry about bothering the doctor, and can do and enjoy all of the things you love, without the fear of pain holding you back.

When something like chronic pain strikes in your knee, lower-back, neck or shoulders, or if you experience an injury from sport or exercise – we know it’s very tempting to leave it and hope it’ll simply “go away on its own” with time and rest… That you’ll wake up someday and like “magic”, it’ll be as if it never happened in the first place – but that’s usually not the case, and often the pain ends up worse than it was when it first started.

We also know it’s very easy to reach into the back of the cupboard for the painkillers, and take them whenever pain strikes so it eases off fast – but all those painkillers are no good for your health long-term, and do nothing but mask the pain instead.

Or, maybe you’re left feeling confused, even skeptical because you’ve sought advice from other healthcare professionals, or a physical therapist in the past, and nothing they seemed to say or do help your situation.

Can You Relate?

If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. At Arancia Physical Therapy we hear this all the time… In fact, people who come to see us have often:

  • Thought the pain would go away on its own – but it didn’t
  • Paid several visits to the Doctor, only to be told to “rest” and “take some painkillers” – then weeks later go back to see the Doctor again, only to be prescribed MORE rest, and an even stronger dose of painkillers
  • Been put on a month-long waiting list after being referred to see a specialist, then when after waiting so long to be seen – were given a sheet of exercises, which did nothing to ease the pain quickly, if at all
  • Tried a few YouTube exercises, but those exercises either didn’t do a thing or aggravated the pain making it even worse
  • Thought it would be a good idea to rest because the pain was so bad, but all that did was make the area even more stiff and tight
  • Been told by a family member or friend that “everybody gets aches and pains as they get older” – making it easy to accept it’s “just a part of life”


Any of those sound familiar?

If any of these have happened to you – we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our physical therapist specialists at our Cranston physical therapy clinic to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already, like many people we see, is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work – you are closer to finding the thing that does!

  • Stay free from painkillers – so you’re not always reaching in the cupboard for painkillers to ease the pain whenever it strikes – PLUS they’re no good for your long-term health anyway, and don’t actually do anything to fix the problem, just mask it
  • Avoid dangerous surgery – we’ll help you get to the root-cause of what’s going on quick – often inside 20 minutes, so you don’t have to get to the point of having to face surgery to fix it
  • Found out what’s wrong– we’ll help give you peace of mind and ensure that your problem is “corrected” and “healed” properly – and we will provide you with the perfect set of exercises that will speed up your recovery
  • Get more enjoyment out of life – so you can enjoy quality time with family and friends that aches and pains can steal from you, and finally get a good night sleep without tossing and turning trying to find that one position that feels right

Basically, we love to help people get back to living life free from the curse of chronic pain…

Working with Dr. Jess is wonderful. I have a length-leg discrepancy that has hindered me my whole life. Dr. Jess is quite precise and purposeful in her treatments and is very talented as a healer, physically, and emotionally. I had a wonderful experience at Arancia Physical Therapy and they gave me my life back!
