Physical Therapy

 

Physical therapy is in many cases an integral part of the multi-disciplinary approach to pain management whether acute or chronic.  Licensed physical therapists are specially trained to evaluate and treat individuals whose ability to function is impaired or threatened by disease or injury.  Following a thorough evaluation, an individualized treatment program is developed.  Treatment techniques utilized are therapeutic exercises and education, and may include physical agents such as various heat modalities, cold, electrical stimulation, TENS, massage and mobilization.

 

Back and neck schools are part of our program for all back and neck pain patients.  We feature a curriculum designed to help patients take care of themselves utilizing American Back School and American Neck School.
