Physical Therapy Services
The Physical Therapists who are part of the Back Pain Alliance are experts in a wide array of techniques that they leverage to get you better faster.
Treat chronic pain with ultrasound waves, where deep heating is applied to the soft tissues through sound waves and accelerates healing.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
Relieves chronic pain through the application of a pulsed current via surface electrodes on unbroken skin. The electrical stimulation can override pain signals sent to the brain.
Used to treat neck and back pain. Traction uses gentle pulling to reduce pressure on the spine’s discs and increase the space where nerves exit the spinal cord.
