Therapy for back, neck and spine pain.

:: Manual therapy to optimize function in the spinal joints & surrounding soft tissue
:: Muscle energy techniques :: Joint mobilization
:: Soft-tissue mobilization/massage
:: Manual & mechanical traction
:: Home exercise & patient education
:: Trunk & postural stabilization exercises to strengthen muscles
:: Electrical stimulation & other modalities to reduce pain & spasms

We also have the most advanced aquatic therapy program in the area, with two SwimEx resistive current pools and one static pool complete with lift – ideal therapy for non-weightbearing or partial-weightbearing patients. We treat the full spectrum of spinal problems, neck problems and back pain, including:

:: Chronic lumbar pain :: Degenerative disc disease
:: Cervical & lumbar sprains or strains
:: Bulging & herniated discs :: Postsurgical rehab
:: Pinched nerves :: Sacroiliac dysfunction & pain
:: Low back pain :: Muscle spasms :: Whiplash injuries
Sciatica :: Postural pain :: Stiffness

Our therapists take an evidence-based, comprehensive approach to rehab and address the underlying source of pain and dysfunction. Specific trunk stabilization techniques are combined with manual therapy to optimize function in the spinal joints and surrounding soft tissue, modulate pain, increase range of motion, control inflammation and facilitate movement.

Your patient will also receive extensive education on improving posture and flexibility. Patients learn the value of home self-care therapy to prevent future problems. The more your patient knows and understands his or her body and condition, the better able they will be to benefit from physical therapy for better, longer-lasting results.
