Spine Rehabilitation

Acute or chronic back and neck pain can be debilitating. The Physical therapists at Orthopedic Physical Therapy Center have advanced training specifically for evaluation and treatment of spinal disorders.

Prior to treatment, your physical therapist will perform a thorough physical examination to determine the source of the problem. This includes testing of the muscles, ligaments, spinal facet joints, fascia (connective tissue), nerves and discs. We do not perform x-rays or MRI exams. If these tests are necessary, we will refer you to your family physician or a physician who specializes in spinal examination such as physiatrist, Orthopedic surgeon, neurosurgeon or neurologist. We will work closely with your medical doctor to ensure an appropriate treatment plan is provided for your unique condition.

At Orthopedic Physical Therapy Center, we provide one on one care. This individualized care makes it possible to clearly explain the goals and objectives, as well as provide a specific, detailed home program of exercise. Treatment for the spine may include manual therapy techniques, therapeutic massage, spinal mobilization, ultrasound & TENS treatments, lumbar or cervical traction, warm water therapy, and therapeutic exercise for stretching, strengthening and spinal stabilization exercises. Specialized training in proper posture, body mechanics, lifting techniques and pain management also is incorporated into the plan of care.
