Back pain is a complex issue that affects millions of people each year. It can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain that may shoot down the leg. From lower back pain caused by muscle stiffness and spasms to herniated disks, physical therapy is an essential first-line therapy to help you regain motion and strength to alleviate the pain. While our physical therapists will treat your back pain, they will also identify the cause of your discomfort and provide you with solutions to prevent the condition in the future.
Sprains or strains are injuries to a muscle, tendon, and/or ligaments that support the spine (which connect the different bones together), and are often caused by twisting or lifting improperly.
Sciatica refers to a condition in which pain radiates down the back of the legs, most typically down one side. This is caused by pinching of the sciatic nerve which runs from the lower spine through the glutes and down into the legs.
Spondylosis is a general term and refers to age-related degenerative arthritis or osteoarthritis, in which changes to the spinal discs may cause muscle spasms or pain and can worsen with age.
Manual therapy involves a range of hands-on techniques performed by our skilled therapists. These techniques aim to promote healing, improve mobility, reduce pain, and restore optimal function. With a personalized approach, our therapists utilize various manual therapy techniques to address specific needs and conditions.
Therapeutic Exercise and Activity
Neuromuscular re-education is a specialized technique to improve coordination, control, and function of muscles and nerves. Our therapists use this technique to restore proper muscle activation, improve balance and proprioception, and enhance overall movement quality. By stimulating the neuromuscular system, patients can regain functional abilities and improve their quality of life.
