Types of Treatment
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

Here’s what some of our patients had to say
Thank you so much! I love you guys and the care I received!
I recently had knee replacement surgery. I decided to do my physical therapy at ProActive PTS in Verona because it would be convenient. I am so glad I made that decision. Nash made me feel comfortable right away. He is very knowledgeable and has a calm, encouraging manner. I was thrilled with the success with…
Julie and Jessica were invaluable in my breast cancer recovery. After a long recovery from a mastectomy, chemo, radiation, and reconstructive surgery with implants, I still suffered from pain in my ribs below my breast and pain in my breast area from radiation. The Breast Center at UW Hospital was incredible during the implant surgery…
From the first time I met Julie and Jessica, it was clear that concern for my total care was their priority. This included both the physical and mental challenges of breast cancer recovery. Upon learning of their focus on all aspects of this targeted program, I knew I was in the right place and on…
After a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction which required muscle to be removed from my back and brought to my chest, I didn’t want anyone touching me. My chest felt weird, I was in a lot of pain, and I was tired of doctor appointments. But I also felt very weak and knew I needed…
We rate Proactive PTS a 10; we are extremely happy! After having received excellent PT in the past, we had no doubt this was the only place we would trust with our son’s recovery. The warm, welcoming environment makes it a comfortable place to receive therapy. This puts him at ease allowing for the most…
After just 4 visits…I feel like a brand new person. Before, I could barely walk for 15 minutes without my back screaming in pain. Now I’m zooming through therapy and going on walks at home.
Wonderful staff, very helpful, competent and professional. They listen to what I say and are working with me to meet my goal.
Amazing service. They have gone out of their way to call and follow up with me while doing my at-home exercises. Highly recommend.
My husband was skeptical of my choice to use physical therapy to treat my back pain instead of medications. After seeing my results from working with the ProActive PTS team, my husband is a believer now too.
