Low back pain and neck pain are two of the major health problems in our society today. Unfortunately, many people suffer from chronic back or neck pain that does not respond to traditional medical care. Additionally, far to few sufferers of spine pain receive an early referral to physical therapy. If you suffer from low back (lumbar), middle back (thoracic), or neck (cervical) pain VASTA Physical Therapy can help. We treat a wide range of conditions including herniated disks, spinal stenosis, spinal fusion, failed back surgery, facet arthritis, radiculopathy, myelopathy, spondylolisthesis, spondylosis, sacroiliac pain, headaches, cervicogenic dizziness, temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) pain, and whiplash associated disorders.
Although the natural course of an acute episode of low back or neck pain is generally favorable, pain and limited function can, and often do, persist. In some cases, problems may become chronic in nature and can be incapacitating.
A physical therapist with advanced specialization in spine care is especially equipped to help patients suffering from spinal disorders and spine related symptoms. The physical therapists at VASTA Physical Therapy utilize interventions with proven effectiveness including spinal manipulation, trigger point dry needling, specialized massage and soft-tissue procedures including IASTM. In addition, we employ the latest in specialized exercise programs to not only eliminate your pain, but just as importantly, to prevent it from returning. Our patients frequently comment that, “they have never had a more thorough and effective management of their spine complaints.”
Who Will Benefit?
Patients who have acute and chronic low-back and neck pain, muscle-tension headaches, pain extending into the arms or legs, general arthritic spine complaints, lumbar spinal stenosis, and work-related spine pain may benefit from physical therapy intervention. In addition, post-surgical rehabilitation is critical for faster and more complete recovery from operations such as laminectomy and spinal fusion.
