Back/Neck Pain

Back Rehabilitation

A Reputation for Results

If you have low back pain, 1st Choice Physical Therapy strongly encourages you to seek the care of our qualified therapists. Physical therapy helps patients avoid prolonged episodes of pain that can result in long-term disability. For those experiencing chronic pain, it should be part of a multi-faceted rehabilitation program. The fact is, physical therapy is conservative, cost-effective, reversible, and rarely has any side effects.

We Address the Cause

Millions of people suffer from low back pain that may result in a variety of problems such as limited recreational activities, troubles with daily activities, and even complete immobility. Early intervention is critical to help reduce pain and recover function. A combination of patient education, manual techniques, and therapeutic exercise is proven to reduce pain and help a patient recover their independence.

Conservative, Cost-Effective, No Side Effects

Drugs offer short-term relief but may have severe side effects. Spinal adjustments may be helpful, but this type of intervention is usually recommended for months-on-end with little proof of its effectiveness. In contrast, a comprehensive physical therapy program will not only provide you with pain relief, but will help you avoid repeat and often progressively worse episodes of pain. Once the pain subsides, we empower patients with the tools they need to help avoid repeat problems.

Priority One – Pain Relief

Severe head & neck pain can be disabling. For this reason, our first priority is pain relief. Treating the underlying causes of identifiable movement dysfunction is the next step toward achieving long-term relief and recovery.
