Prior to manual therapy, a passive therapy may be administered. Passive therapy may include application of heat, ultrasound, and/or electrical stimulation. These therapies warm and relax soft tissue and allow joints to be more easily manipulated.
Physical therapists teach patients how to attain and maintain good posture to protect the spine from unnecessary stress and strain. Patients learn practical skills such as how to lift, reach, carry, stand, sit, and get in and out of a car
Our physical therapists are committed to improving each patient’s health and well-being. We believe a critical part of each patient’s return to health and activity is a personalized rehab program that provides patients with tools to prevent a future spine problem.
