Back Pain & Sciatica

Back pain affects around 80% of the population at some point in their lives. It is a leading cause of visits to a physician and missed days from work.  Sciatica pain can be felt radiating along the sciatic nerve, which runs down one or both legs from the lower back. Both types of pain can complicate your life and keep you from doing what you want to do.

In physical therapy, our most basic obligation is to medically screen you and make sure that you are being treated in the right place. Physical therapists are trained to identify red flags that would require further medical assessment. If we cannot help you, we will refer you to the proper place. Physical therapists are also trained to help you find the root cause of your condition and to help you resolve your issue without medication or surgery as frequently as possible.

Your physical therapist can help you address back pain and the functional difficulties related to it. Some of the common conditions we address:

• Degenerative Disc Disease
• Spinal Stenosis
• Herniated or Bulging Disc
• Spondylolysis & Spondylolisthesis
• Scolioses
• Muscle strains
• Ligament sprains
• Arthritis
• Osteoporosis

Your physical therapist will perform a thorough examination and will work with you to develop your goals for treatment and a physical therapy plan to help you achieve those goals.

You don’t need to hurt any longer, call us to get an evaluation and treatment. Our physical therapists are licensed, experienced and committed to seeing you restored to better health.
