Physical therapy at Concierge Spine and Sports Medicine is an important treatment option for most back pain sufferers. A physical therapist is trained to carry out your doctor’s orders to stretch, strengthen and exercise your back in a safe and effective way. It is important that physical therapy is provided with education, so that you can feel empowered to take charge of your own recovery.
Physical therapists are trained to give instruction on posture, educate you about basic anatomy and physiology, and instruct you in body mechanics, stretching, strengthening and conditioning exercises. The physical therapist will also work with our team to determine if there are other types of treatments including such as ultrasound, heat, diathermy, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) or electrical stimulation that may be helpful as part of your treatment plan.
