Physical Therapy for your Spine
December 2, 2021
Your spine is a very important part of your anatomy, but you probably knew that. Taking care of your spine is a very important part of your overall heat, but you probably knew that too. However, do you know how to take care of your spine? Physical therapy can help you with your aches, pains, stiffness, radiating pain, weakness, and several other spinal issues that you could encounter throughout your life.
Physical therapy can use several tools to help your spine health improve. Hands on techniques such as soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, and strategies to improve range of motion can help improve your overall mobility. Modalities could include ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and traction can be used to decrease muscle tone and trigger points, decrease pain, and to decrease nerve symptoms down your arms or legs. Interventions to improve strength, stability, coordination, and function can be provided in the clinic and at home to improve strength and stability and provide you with the lifelong tools that you need to avoid further spinal issues in the future.
