Back and neck pain affect 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lifetime. Back pain is not the same for every person. Symptoms can range from sharp pain to a dull ache and can even radiate into the legs. For some, back pain lasts just a few days, while others deal with it for months. Our physical therapists at Rehability are eager to help you manage your neck and/ or back pain.
We approach the treatment of spine issues individually. Through a comprehensive assessment, we strive to uncover and treat the underlying dysfunction causing your symptoms. We will use some combination of manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, modalities, body mechanics training, and patient education/ home programming. We will help you strengthen your core muscles (those of the trunk, upper back, and hips) so that you will be able to effectively brace the spine in its optimal position for activities in sitting, standing, and/or lifting.
Whether your back condition is new, long term, pre- or post- surgical, it is imperative that you leave Rehability with an understanding of proper body mechanics and a toolbox of positions, stretches, and/or exercises to help protect your back while engaging in your normal life.
