Back Pain Program

ProCare for back pain

Four out of five American adults experience back pain sometime during their lives. Back pain can be a nuisance or it can be disabling. Once a patient has experienced the first incident of low back pain, there is a high likelihood that they will experience future episodes. If the muscles around the spine fail to work properly, this can set the stage for future injury.

Relief for many back injuries

No matter what type of back pain they suffer from, patients find welcome relief at ProCare Physical Therapy. We specialize in restoring patients to their optimum level of function. We help patients manage their back problems through a variety of therapies, including therapeutic massage, pain management therapy and injury prevention. Our customized programs are designed to decrease pain and increase mobility, strength, flexibility and function. We provide comprehensive, expert treatment for a variety of back problems, including:

  • Low back pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Pinched nerves
  • Postural pain
  • Sciatica
  • Disc herniations
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Postsurgical rehab
  • Core weakness

ProCare Physical Therapy is one of the few independently owned centers in the area to offer personalized, one-on-one care. By combining our experience, skills and training while working closely with referring physicians, we can help patients achieve better results. Because no two patients are the same, our back pain treatment program typically integrates multiple therapies or modalities.

Therapy tailored to your specific needs

Whether you have had back pain or surgery, a spine injury or immobility, we tailor your therapy to your pain, general health, physical abilities and goals for recovery. We begin therapy focusing on alleviating your pain, which allows stretching, strengthening and stabilization to achieve maximum results.

Our team has specialized training with manual therapy techniques, which improve blood flow, restoring normal motion as well as decreasing pain and inflammation. We incorporate core strengthening into our treatment programs to improve your torso strength and posture in order to prevent reinjury.

Don’t let back pain keep you from work, sports or play.
