Back & Neck Therapy

Back and Neck Therapy is for patients who have been impaired in the movement or flexibility in their spine and may also exercise pain radiating from this area. Our trained staff use a series of gentle adjustments to the back and neck along with exercises which help patients to use their own muscles to increase flexibility and range of motion as well as to increase their levels of muscular strength and endurance.

A large percentage of Physical Therapy visits involve problems related to the back and neck pain. Other than the common cold, back and neck pain is the number one reason for seeing a doctor. Extended periods of time sitting, looking down at a cell phone and a general lack of exercise weakens the spine. Therapists treat joint dysfunctions of the spine along with nerve and muscle related issues. Assessing how the back and neck effect leg or arm problems is also an essential part of a physical therapy evaluation.

The majority of back and neck pain causes do not require surgery and respond best to physical therapy. Back and neck therapy can help manage pain and expedite healing by reducing the inflammatory cycle and help restore mobility.  Our physical therapists do a full assessment of specific needs and design an individualized treatment program. They will teach you how to prevent or manage your back and neck condition and how to reach your health goals through fitness and wellness-oriented programs.
