The Institute of Spinal Disorders considers physical therapy as a non-surgical treatment solution for back and neck pain.
Depending on your condition, Dr. Myles may recommend physical therapy in combination with other treatments or just by itself. Physical therapy helps patients restore or increase flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, and balance. Exercise is almost always inclusive in physical therapy. It can include stretching, core exercises, weight lifting, and walking. Physical therapists may teach you an exercise program that you can follow at home as a continuous process toward your better health and wellness.Physical Therapy is used to treat injuries or illness such as:
Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
