Headache, Back & Neck Therapy
When you experience headaches, back pain, or neck pain, turn to the skilled physical therapists (PTs) at Faith Regional Health Services. You’ll enjoy working one-on-one with a therapist throughout all your rehabilitation sessions.
The McKenzie Method
Most musculoskeletal pain is caused by a position, movement, or activity. If a mechanical force caused the pain, a mechanical force may help alleviate the cause of the pain. Using the McKenzie Method, our trained physical therapists identify what is causing the pain and develop a plan to correct and improve your mechanics to decrease or eliminate the pain. During therapy, you’ll be taught how to treat your pain with movement to empower you to self-treat at home and prevent further recurrences.
When other therapy has failed, the McKenzie Method often works. Faith Regional employs the area’s first and only McKenzie Method Diplomate, who has the highest level of training, in addition to our other McKenzie Method-certified physical therapists.
Conditions We Treat
Feel confident in the care you’ll receive from therapists who specialize in health conditions related to your back and neck.
Headache pain can range from mild to debilitating. Rely on your PT to determine the underlying cause so you can get the most effective treatment. If your headaches are being caused by a mechanical problems in your neck, your physical therapist may recommend specific, yet simple exercises.
Reduce or eliminate pain in your spine (neck, mid-to-low back) with up-to-date, evidence-based therapy. Your PT will help you take an active role in managing your symptoms.
Neck & Jaw Pain
Neck pain can sometimes happen because of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), which affects the joint connecting your skull to your lower jaw. This condition causes pain, stiffness, and difficulty opening your mouth to talk or eat.
Your physician or dentist may recommend physical therapy for TMD to restore the natural movement of your jaw.
Arm or Leg Pain
Spine problems can sometimes cause pain to radiate to your arms or legs. Working with a skilled PT who can determine the cause of your pain is essential to effectively eliminating your pain.
Sometimes pregnancy can lead to musculoskeletal issues. Physical therapy during or after your pregnancy can help you find relief from diastasis recti (overstretching or tearing of abdominal muscles), numbness/tingling in your fingers or hands, osteoporosis, or pain associated with your mid to low back and pelvic area. Your skilled PT will determine your true cause of pain to treat it effectively.
