Relieve Pain and Regain Motion

The dedicated orthopedists at Comprehensive Spine Institute are here to help you relieve your pain and regain motion to get you back to your best life.

What Is Physical Therapy?

Extremely successful in the treatment of spine pain, physical therapy refers to the combination of stretching, exercise, massage, manual therapy, hot or cold therapy and electrotherapy to promote mobility and function. Strengthening core muscles and exercise is a key way to manage back pain. Physical therapy (PT) is defined as treatment using physical methods rather than medication or surgery.

Patients are often prescribed physical therapy as the first treatment option to reduce and relieve pain. Physical therapy can be combined with other treatments like bracing, injections, chiropractic care and surgical procedures. After surgery, physical therapy helps to regain motion and aid in healing.

Rehabilitation through physical therapy often plays a major role in each patient’s care.

Is Physical Therapy the Best Option?

Physical therapy can be a part of both long term and short term treatment plans and should always be tailored to each individual based on condition, pain and overall prognosis. Physical therapy works well when combined with:

  • Stretching
  • Exercise
  • Heat or Ice
  • Electrotherapy
  • Massage
