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.
Neuro-Muscular Electrical Stimulation (NEMS)
Prevents muscle atrophy (degeneration) which allows patients to resume their usual activities faster than expected. NEMS is also used to prevent and loosen adhesions and for improving venous and lymphatic drainage.
Interferential Current Therapy (IFC)
Relieves pain and accelerate the self-healing process by using two medium frequency currents that penetrate deep lying muscle tissue and stimulates natural hormones.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
Relieves chronic pain through the application of a pulsed current via surface electrodes on unbroken skin.
Treat chronic pain and diseases such as arthritis and fibromyalgia by using ultrasound waves whose thermal effects accelerate healing.
Helps treat deep issue injuries through the usage of topical drugs that can be absorbed at a faster rate using ultrasound.
An evidence-based intensive treatment program for people with Parkinson’s disease with application to other neurological conditions by a LSVT certified therapist.
An advanced hands-on technique that treats the spine with immediate and usually long-standing reductions in pain, and improved function/ROM by applying appropriate force to an affected joint while a patient moves in the direction of pain. This technique has been developed to overcome joint `tracking’ problems or `positional faults’.
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.
Peripheral joint mobilization
Skilled passive movement of the articular surfaces performed by a physical therapist to decrease pain or increase joint mobility
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
A popular treatment for myofascial restriction that uses specially designed instruments to provide a mobilizing effect to scar tissue and adhesions. Helps locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction.
A technique that facilitates the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It would also be utilized to prolong the benefits of manual therapy. It helps improve blood flow and drainage by lifting the skin to create separation between the muscle and dermis layers.
Ergonomic and Postural Shift Alignment
Ergonomics is a science that is used to to evaluate and address work related disorders such as: Carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis and back pain. To prevent re-injury the therapist will make suggestions on posture or with regards to lighting, keyboard alignment and using adjustable tables and chairs.
