Physical Therapy

An overview of physical therapy

When you experience pain that is preventing you from enjoying every day life, physical therapy can help. Pain is often caused by the body not working together. This may include a pinched nerve, a slipped or bulging disc, torn or painful muscle strain, bone spurs or joint problems.

Physical Therapists are the body's mechanical and musculoskeletal experts. They know how your spine and joints work together. If your body is not working correctly, they figure out how to help and restore your physical function and fitness level. The Doctors of Physical Therapy at Spine & Sport will thoroughly evaluate, assess, and provide a treatment plan to relieve pain and prevent recurrence. They will also provide you a plan of care to take home. This consists of different stretches to make sure the brain Physical Therapy gets you back to life!
