Back Pain

Research suggests that four out of every five people have lower back pain at some point in their lives and 13 million Americans see their doctor each year looking for relief from chronic lower back pain. If you’re tired of temporary fixes for your pain or overwhelmed by the prospect of surgery, there are other options. Up to 79% of people find physical therapy an effective alternative to surgery

Physical therapy is often the most effective—and non-invasive—treatment for back pain. Our ProActive therapists are experts in the non-surgical treatment of back injuries. We help patients recover using hands-on physical therapy and supervised, targeted exercise while also fending off future problems.

You might benefit from therapy if you have:

  • Acute and chronic lower back and neck pain
  • Muscle-tension headaches
  • Pain extending into the arms or legs
  • General arthritic back complaints
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Work-related back pain
  • Recently had back surgery

Neck Pain

Neck pain is common and can be attributed to a number of conditions. Neck pain can also cause loss of motion that holds you back from living your life. The good news is that it is usually caused by joint and muscle problems, not a serious disease. A variety of treatments can bring relief.

Our expert physical therapists will create a treatment program tailored to your specific needs. Treatments could include:

  • Patient education
  • Development of home treatment program
  • Manual therapy to normalize your range of motion
  • Hands-on therapy and (soft tissue mobilization) to work on muscle tone
  • Exercises to help normalize movement and increase strength
  • Mobilization, a hands-on technique to move the neck joints and muscles to calm pain and spasms
  • Joint mobilizations

We Also Specialize In:

Joint Pain

Joint pain can range from mild soreness after physical activity to consistent pain with any movement. Whether you’re recovering from an injury or looking to manage arthritis, our ProActive team can help develop a treatment plan to ease pain and regain mobility and confidence. 

Physical Therapy 

Through physical therapy, the team at ProActive will help you to get back to full strength and movement after an illness or injury. Our therapists assist you in rebuilding strength and range of motion, helping to manage pain caused by surgery, a sports injury, joint disease, or chronic diseases like back pain and arthritis. With consistency, physical therapy can help prevent permanent damage and recurring problems. That means you can get back to doing the things you love, free from pain. 

Sports Physical Therapy

Sports medicine and sports physical therapy involve a comprehensive team of healthcare professionals dedicated to improving athletic performance through the treatment and prevention of sports injuries. These qualified professionals have a wide range of backgrounds including exercise physiologists, athletic trainers, physicians, biomechanists, nutritionists and physical therapists.

Orthopaedics

Orthopaedic physical therapy is used to treat both non-surgical and post-surgical patients struggling with arthritis, muscle weakness and imbalance, post-fractures, joint and muscle pain, tendonitis, bursitis, inflammatory swelling, and joint alignment dysfunction. Orthopedic physical therapists are skilled in the diagnosis, management, and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders. 

Chronic Pain

Frequently untreated, chronic pain symptoms include headache, lower back pain, arthritis pain, and neurogenic pain. ProActive focuses on two critical elements when it comes to alleviating your pain: education and movement. The combination of therapeutic neuroscience education (TNE) and movement plans designed to address your unique symptoms has had significant success in helping patients deal with persistent pain.

Persistent pain, or chronic pain, is pain that last for weeks, months or years. For some, chronic pain is the result of an injury, like a sprained back, or an ongoing problem like arthritis.  For others, chronic pain occurs in the absence of a past injury. This type of pain is time based whereas more recent information has shown us that other types of pain are based on triggering mechanisms. These triggers can be mechanical in nature but often times they can be related to a history of painful conditions or experiences.
