The Physical Therapists follow the doctor’s prescription and do a comprehensive evaluation during the first visit. Based on the evaluation the PT program is customized to the needs and the goals of each individual patient. Physical Modalities (ie. Ultrasound, Electrical Stimulation, Moist Heat, etc) are incorporated into the treatment sessions. An important component to the success of the program is the development of a Home Exercise Program. This is designed to supplement the sessions done in our facility. SPINE OPTIONS offers private rooms for one on one individual treatments.
Decompression Spinal Traction
Decompression spinal traction is used to create sufficient space between spinal segments to encourage bulging or herniated discs to return to their normal position between the vertebrae. Decompression can relieve pain and promote healing. Physical therapists utilize a traction unit which can be adjusted according to the patients tolerance and condition.
Manual manipulation of soft tissue helps relieve muscle spasm, tension, and pain by increasing blood circulation to the injured area, which helps improve mobility. Massage can be relaxing or invigorating, depending on the style. There are several types of massage techniques to supplement the Physical Therapy and Pain Management treatments.
