How We Treat Low Back Pain
Every visit at our clinic will be entirely one-on-one with one of our certified Doctors of Physical Therapy. You always get the expert treatment and care throughout the entire session. After your evaluation, we determine the actual cause of your low back pain and establish a treatment plan to reduce or completely remove the pain. This is typically done through strengthening of vital, misunderstood muscles and rounding out your body’s functions. We never use medication or painful shots to treat your pain.
The Science Behind Our Treatment
The lumbar spine is a complex system that is made of 5 large body Vertebrae. Low back discs are larger than anywhere else in the body because they are designed to absorb compression. There is often dysfunction in the lumbar spine that can be related to either the disc, facet joints, central/lateral foramen (area where nerves run) or the muscular/ligamentous system. Our therapists will used detailed biomechanical assessment to determine the source or root cause of your pain to return you to your activities faster.
Research has demonstrated that getting care for low back pain within 16 days leads to improved outcomes and decreased cost to the patient.
How We Achieve A Better Diagnosis with Less Discomfort
What is manual therapy? Manual therapy is a method physical therapy that involves the therapist feeling exactly how your body reacts to specific movement and exercises. A lot of pain and discomfort comes from lack of mobility or a small range of motion. Through simple movements and exercises, we're able to get your body used to these motions again, reducing or completely removing your pain.
Manual therapy includes a detailed biomechanical assessment. This means that your therapist will watch and feel how you move in order to make the most accurate diagnosis possible. This leads to faster recovery times and improved outcomes.
