Physical Therapy for Neck and Back Pain
Andersonville Physical Therapy on Chicago's north side specializes in treating disorders of the spine, pelvis, and TMJ (temporomandibular joint). We use mobilization to restore normal alignment and motion and exercise to increase muscle strength and flexibility.
Back pain is one of the most common medical complaints we treat. Disorders of the spine outrank all other musculoskeletal problems in total numbers and in total cost associated with evaluation and treatment. Spine problems also are the second most common reason for physician visits.
Reducing Back Pain
It’s not surprising that back pain is so widespread. The trunk is the center of our motion, and a strong trunk is essential for balance, coordination, and strength. For the spine to remain healthy and in good posture, it must have normal mobility and good support from the muscle groups in your trunk. Research has shown that if you have back pain, you probably also have weakness and muscle imbalance in your trunk muscles and reduced flexibility in your back, hips, and lower body.
Common spinal problems that we see and treat include:
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Herniated disc
- Degenerative disc disease
- Lumbar and cervical strains and sprains
- Post-surgical rehabilitation
