Neck and Back Physical Therapy
Three out of ten people will miss a day of work during their lives due to low back pain. Ninety percent of the population will experience spine pain sometime during their life. Studies tell us that 95% of herniated disc patients would not require surgery if early intervention is taken.
After a detailed spinal evaluation your Physical Therapist will begin your treatment program with these general guidelines for care:
You will be educated in your condition, prognosis, posture, body mechanics and prevention.
Early stretching and strengthening exercise specific to your condition to help manage the pain and begin restoring normal function.
Accelerate healing with the use of:
*Therapeutic Exercise- to strengthen core stabilizers, establish a home exercise program and to prevent future occurrences.
*Postural Training- (simply put) learn to use the postural muscles in the way they were designed to resolve pain and dysfunction.
*Traction, heat, ice, ultrasound, or electric stimulation may be used in acute cases.
We are dedicated to achieving your goals and returning you “back in action”!
