Spine Injury

According to the Mayo Clinic and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), most back pain is caused by muscle strain, awkward lifting of heavy objects, bad posture, weak core muscle strength or generally poor overall fitness. These factors can cause both sudden back pain and chronic, persistent back pain that has been troublesome over time.

Research suggests that 4 out of every 5 people have lower back pain at some point in their lives. The Journal of the American Medicine Association reports that low back and neck pain accounted for the third-highest amount of healthcare spending in 2013, with estimated spending of $87.6 billion. Spending on low back and neck pain increased the most over the years 1996-2013, by an estimated $57.2 billion. *

What is the best treatment for my back pain?

Surgery may not be the first answer. While surgical procedures are often the first suggestion, physical therapy is often more effective – and non-invasive! We help patients recover using hands-on physical therapy and supervised, targeted exercise while also fending off future problems.

Patients who have acute and chronic low-back and neck pain, muscle-tension headaches, pain extending into the arms or legs, general arthritic spine complaints, lumbar spinal stenosis, and work-related spine pain may benefit from physical therapy. In addition, post-surgery physical therapy is critical for successful and faster recovery from operations such as laminectomy and fusion.

Though we’ll custom-tailor a spine rehabilitation program specific to your symptoms, range of motion, and other factors, your treatment program will include a combination of treatments and exercises to get you moving better and without pain.
