At SpineOne, physical therapy is an integral part of our minimally-invasive approach to care. Our on-site physical therapists work closely with all of their patients to develop a personalized plan for treatment to reduce back pain and increase mobility. If you’ve scheduled a physical therapy session at SpineOne to address your back and neck pain, here is what you can expect:
The initial consultation is one of the most important parts of our physical therapy program. During your consultation, your therapist will work to understand the nature of your back or neck pain. He or she will evaluate your mobility and determine the best treatment approach for your case. Your physical therapist will also review the guidelines your doctor has set for physical therapy to ensure that you get the exact care that has been prescribed for you.
As part of the consultation, your physical therapist will plan a complete course of treatment for your back pain. Most treatment programs last for eight to 10 weeks and may involve more than one appointment per week.
Physical Therapy Appointments
During your physical therapy appointments, you will perform a number of exercises designed to increase your ability to move and build strength in your spine. These exercises are also used to loosen up stiff areas and reduce pain. Your physical therapist will evaluate your progress at every appointment and report that progress to your physician. He or she will tweak your treatment plan based on how you respond to treatment.
Your physical therapy doesn’t end when your appointment does. Your therapist will recommend exercises you can do at home to strengthen your spine and reduce your back or neck pain. It is important to keep up with these exercises in order to ensure successful treatment.
With SpineOne, you won’t have to travel to multiple facilities for spinal evaluation and physical therapy, thanks to our on-site resources.
