Back and neck pain are common conditions affecting people and their ability to participate in the activities they love. Your Physical Therapist will provide passive modalities to relieve discomfort and combine them with gentle exercise to help patients progress toward more functional activities, getting them back to their established goals. Passive modalities may include massage, joint mobilization, moist heat, ice, or electric stimulation.
Exercises implemented in addition to passive treatment are geared toward each patient’s specific presentation in order to improve strength, stabilization, and flexibility where necessary. The therapist will provide an individualized program.
