Therapies and Lifestyle Changes

In addition to traditional approaches, alternative therapies, and lifestyle changes may be adopted to help reduce discomfort caused by back and neck pain. Living with chronic pain can affect you not only physically but also emotionally.

Back and neck pain, neuropathy, and pelvic pain can impact your mobility and performance in daily activities. At Spinal Diagnostics, we understand the importance of finding the proper treatment approach tailored to your needs.

In addition to targeted treatments, such as minimally invasive interventions, pain management procedures, and neuromodulation, we offer therapies and lifestyle modification guidance.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a non-invasive approach to reducing pain and restoring body functionality. Focusing on musculoskeletal imbalances helps improve mobility and strengthen the affected muscles. Some of the benefits physical therapy at Spinal Diagnostics offers include the following:

  • Customized treatment plan: During your initial assessment, our team of healthcare professionals will evaluate your physical state, symptoms, and spinal condition. Based on the findings, they will design an individualized treatment plan to cater to your specific needs and goals. This tailored approach ensures better outcomes and a faster recovery process.
  • Pain reduction: Pain and swelling are significantly reduced by stretching specific muscles and focusing on musculoskeletal imbalances. Physical therapy employs a host of therapeutic techniques to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation. Some of these methods may include manual therapies, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, or cold and heat therapies. By addressing the root cause of spinal pain and using an evidence-based approach, physical therapy aids in pain management.
  • Restored mobility: Stiffness and limited range of motion are common symptoms of spinal conditions. Physical therapy helps improve flexibility by reducing stiffness and discomfort. As you gain more freedom of movement, you are better able to carry out everyday activities and experience an improved quality of life.
  • Muscle strengthening: Your doctor will guide you through exercises and resistance training to strengthen muscles supporting your spine, neck, and pelvis.
  • Improved Posture: Poor posture can contribute to spinal issues and exacerbate existing conditions. Through physical therapy, you learn techniques to maintain proper posture, preventing further spinal stress, and relieve pressure from affected areas. Good posture positively impacts overall spinal health and can help prevent future issues.
  • Education and Prevention: In addition to hands-on treatment, our therapists provide valuable counsel on lifestyle factors, home exercises, and ergonomic adjustments, empowering patients to take charge of their spinal health. This guidance can significantly contribute to injury prevention and the successful management of chronic spinal conditions.

In conclusion, physical therapy at Spinal Diagnostics offers a comprehensive and personalized approach to spinal care. Our skilled therapists employ evidence-based techniques to help patients recover and regain their functionality, ensuring an enhanced quality of life.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy has long been used to provide relief from various aches and pains afflicting the body. Massage therapy involves manipulating skin and muscles to alleviate pain and reduce tension.

At Spinal Diagnostics, we provide massage therapy as an essential treatment option for addressing spinal conditions. Here are some of the benefits of massage therapy for spinal care:

  • Pain relief: One of the primary objectives of massage therapy is to alleviate pain. By targeting tight and tense muscles, practitioners can help release tension and reduce pain associated with chronic spinal conditions, such as lower back pain, muscle spasms, and sciatica.
  • Stress reduction: As a means to induce a deep relaxation state, massage therapy can help reduce stress levels and lead to pain alleviation. 
  • Improved blood flow: Physical therapy helps improve flexibility by reducing stiffness and discomfort.  Enhanced blood flow results in the delivery of essential nutrients and oxygen to the affected muscles and tissues. Improved circulation can speed up recovery from injuries and reduce inflammation associated with spinal conditions.
  • Increased Flexibility: Massage therapy aids in improving flexibility by reducing stiffness and discomfort. It can help elongate and stretch the muscles along the spine, promoting better alignment and mobility. It can also contribute to reducing the risk of injury and enhancing overall spinal health.
  • Enhanced sleep quality: Massage therapy stimulates the release of serotonin and dopamine, promoting relaxation and sleep quality. Improved sleep can promote healing and recovery processes, further contributing to overall spinal health.
  • Increased Flexibility: Massage therapy aids in improving flexibility by reducing stiffness and discomfort. It can help elongate and stretch the muscles along the spine, promoting better alignment and mobility. It can also contribute to reducing the risk of injury and enhancing overall spinal health.

Massage therapy at Spinal Diagnostics offers patients a multifaceted treatment approach to address spinal conditions and improve overall well-being. Our experienced practitioners are committed to tailoring each session according to the patient's needs, ensuring a personalized, results-driven experience.
