How We Help For Back Pain
Start Your Recovery Process With Our Expert Physical Therapists...Call Today.Are you looking for a drug-free, affordable solution to your pain and movement problems? Physical therapy is a great first-line treatment for most muscle and joint problems. Clinically proven to reduce pain and dysfunction, physical therapy also saves you time and money. Although other kinds of practitioners will offer some of these treatments as "physical therapy", it's important for you to know that physical therapy can only be provided by licensed physical therapists. The cornerstones of physical therapy treatment are:
- Patient Education
- Therapeutic Exercise
- Functional Training
- Hands-on Manual Therapy
- Healing Modalities
Depending on the particular needs of a patient, physical therapists may also "mobilize" or "manipulate" a joint (that is, perform certain types of movements at the end of your range of motion) or perform certain soft tissue techniques to muscles to promote proper movement and function.
At Home Exercises Can Help
Treatment & Prevention
The treatment for a patient's back pain depends strongly upon its cause and location; however, many conditions can be at least partially relieved by a combination of non-invasive techniques, including movement specific exercises, education, manual therapy and other treatments that can be performed by the patient at home.
For particularly severe spinal conditions that can't be treated by non-invasive means, there are a number of surgical options that can be employed, some of which are minimally-invasive. For both lumbar and middle back pain, common surgeries include discectomy and/or vertebral fusion.
As its name suggests, a discectomy involves the removal of all or part of an injured spinal disc. Vertebral fusion, on the other hand, focuses on creating a strong structure from two adjacent vertebrae by physically joining them together (often also replacing the disc with an appropriate spacer). In some cases, these two procedures will be performed together.
The most important thing an individual can do is to protect his or her back before a painful condition can develop. To maintain good back and spine health, doctors recommend developing an appropriate diet and exercise regimen, using proper posture, sleeping on your side for good spinal support, quitting health-impacting vices like smoking or excessive drinking and generally reducing stress.

At db Orthopedic Physical Therapy, back pain is one of the most common ailments that we treat. Patients often call and ask, "how can we help relieve their symptoms?" In short, here is how our expert and caring team of physical therapists will help resolve your back pain issues. When you come to db Orthopedic Physical Therapy, we will perform an initial evaluation on the first visit. Be prepared to move around quite a bit, so be sure to wear comfortable clothing and make sure that your back is accessible. An initial evaluation will consist of several different parts. First, a history about your present problem will be taken. Be prepared to discuss your symptoms and what activities or positions make your symptoms better or worse.
Some special questions will be asked to help us determine the nature of your problem and to discover anything that needs immediate medical attention. Our physical therapist will also take measurements of how you are moving. This may include measurements of your range of motion and strength. A postural assessment will also be included in the initial evaluation. From the results of the evaluation, a specific treatment plan will be devised and started.
It is important to remember to be an active participant in your treatment and ask questions if you are unsure of what to do. Once we complete your evaluation, we present and oversee a comprehensive rehabilitation, treatment and training program that is specifically designed to treat your personalized needs. We consider factors like age, severity of injury, goals and more to get you back a full and fulfilling life of activity... free of back pain.
