Returning You to Optimal Health - Without Surgery

Your therapy may include hands-on care by a physical therapist and special exercise designed to help alleviate pain - and get you moving again. Ultimately, the only way to permanently treat your back problem is to make your back stronger, more flexible, and more resistant to injury. Through customized exercise designed for your back or neck, our goal is to ensure your healthy return to recreational and work activities.

Comprehensive, non-surgical treatment methods offered include:

  • Physiatry - A branch of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and management of disease by “physical” means (e.g., physical therapy, spinal injections and medications).
  • Physical Therapy - Uses exercise, joint mobilization and body mechanics to reduce and manage pain, improve overall function, and decrease disability. Our team specializes in the McKenzie Method, also known as Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT). This involves research-based, active movements and education. It is a helpful model for treating spine, arm and leg pain. A certified McKenzie physical therapist will assess your pain through a series of safe movements and will then create a treatment plan for you to reduce pain and help restore you to your old self. Our physical therapists also provide you with educational tools that will help you gain your independence back and prevent pain from returning.
  • Occupational Therapy - Assists individuals with activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing and household tasks. Proper body mechanics, ergonomic concerns and return-to-work issues can also be addressed.
  • Chiropractic Medicine - Involves adjusting the spine to correct vertebral misalignment and imbalance. In addition to adjustments, chiropractors may use massage, stretching and exercise to enhance function and lessen pain.
  • Integrative Medicine - Works with traditional healthcare providers to deliver established treatments, such as acupuncture and massage therapy, for preventative, chronic and long-term stages of care.
