Effective Therapy for Your Back & Neck Pain
Pro-PT’s staff of caring, certified therapists have ample training and experience treating patients in Asheboro and Lexington with back and neck pain. It’s not a surprise that back and neck pain are common afflictions affecting countless people and stopping them from living their best lives. The onset is often quick, the duration is indefinite, and the cause is unknown. Patients referred to our treatment center for physical therapy initially deal with the acute pain commonly associated with back and neck pain. We initiate passive modalities to relieve the discomfort and typically combine them with gentle exercise to help patients progress toward more functional activities.
Passive & Active Treatment Options
There are many ways patients and medical professionals approach back and neck pain treatment. Some passive modalities include applying heat or ice to the affected area and using electrical stimulation. A prime example would be using heat to warm up the muscles before performing activities to stretch and strengthen them gently. Applying an ice pack after treatment can effectively help decrease inflammation. After lessening the acute pain phase, we can take a more active approach. Pro-PT’s therapists incorporate various exercises to specifically focus on stretching and strengthening the muscles. We customize your program according to your particular injury, current lifestyle, and treatment and recovery goals.
