Effect of Spine Dysfunction

Dysfunction of the spine can be severely debilitating to one’s ability to perform activities at both home and work. Pain in the lumbar spine (lower back) is the number one reason for missed days of work, followed by the pain of the cervical spine (neck).

Physical Therapy Intervention

Research has shown that targeted exercises, proper body mechanics, and correct postural concepts taught through physical therapy can help decrease spine dysfunction and significantly reduce the risk of recurrence.

Rehabilitation Team

Your rehabilitation team consists of physical therapists, orthopedic doctors, massage therapists and athletic trainers (in case of rehabilitation for sports injuries). The rehabilitation team works on various physical activities and flexibility exercises that help to regain the strength and motion of the injured site.

Advantages of Rehabilitation

The advantages of the rehabilitation program include:

  • Stretching and bending exercises improve the flexibility of the injured site.
  • Massage relieves the tension of the muscles and improves the blood flow to the injury site.
  • Rehabilitation restores the functions and movements of the broken or injured joints.
