Spine Therapy

Our therapists have advanced training in evaluating and treating the spine. After a thorough history and evaluation, our therapists use various treatments to help you achieve your goal of:

  • Less pain
  • More mobility
  • Return to normal function after an injury or surgery

Spine Therapy Treatments

Manual Physical Therapy

Manual physical therapy is a form of physical therapy done with the hands instead of devices or machines. In manual therapy, practitioners use their hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and mobilize joints in order to decrease pain caused by muscle spasm, muscle tension and joint dysfunction.

Lumbar Stabilization

Lumbar stabilization is an active form of exercise used in physical therapy. It strengthens muscles to support your spine and help prevent lower back pain. Through a series of exercises and with the initial help of an experienced physical therapist, you're trained to find and maintain your “neutral spine” position. The back muscles are then exercised to teach the spine how to stay in this position. This exercise is performed on an ongoing basis and is generally used during all phases of a back pain episode and may be prescribed after a thorough evaluation of your specific condition.

The goals of lumbar stabilization exercises include:

  • Reduce back pain
  • Gain control over the movements of, and forces acting on, the spine during daily activity
  • Heal soft-tissue injury, such as muscle strain and torn ligaments
  • Reduce the chance of back injury due to repetitive motions or sudden movements or stresses

Postural Training

Postural problems are usually related to a joint restrictions, muscle imbalances or weakness. Our physical therapists are highly trained in postural analysis.

After an analysis is performed, the therapist can design a thorough workout program as well as use manual skills to eliminate any joint or muscle restriction you're experiencing.

Post-Operative Rehabilitation

We can help you achieve the range of motion and strength you need to return to all of your previous activities after surgery. Each surgery has a specific exercises to be followed during your rehabilitation. Our therapist communicates directly with your surgeon in order to assure the safest and most effective progression of your rehabilitation.
