Physical Therapy has proven to be the premier choice in eliminating or managing back and neck pain. Aggressive treatments such as back surgery, injections, and prescription medication are not only costly, but are also not one hundred percent effective. Before you opt for surgery, ask your physician about Physical Therapy.
Strive utilizes The McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment when treating the spine. The McKenzie Method promotes the body to repair itself without medication, heat, ice, or any other form of medical intervention. This method analyzes a patient's movements and mechanics and identifies what ones cause pain. At this point the therapist can go and prescribe the correct amount of exercise to combat a patient's pain.
Common spine diagnoses include:
