Over 80% of Americans experience some back pain in their lifetime, and it can be debilitating, with a profound effect on your daily activities and function.
The spine is comprised of 30 small bones called vertebrae, which are stabilized and protected by muscles, ligaments and discs. Regardless of whether you are a desk worker or athlete, the spine is subject to generalized wear and tear, which can cause pain and limited function.
Common back, spine and neck conditions include:
Progressive weakness, numbness and tingling, night pain, swelling, and loss of function are all signs that can be evaluated by your Orthologist to determine the best treatment plan to get you better, faster.
To borrow a phrase, they feel your pain. More to the point: they understand your pain. Orthology providers are familiar with back, spine & neck issues and discomfort because it’s just so universal.
Your Orthology provider will take you through a comprehensive examination to assess the specifics of your injury and educate you on the evidenced-based findings. The good news is that after your first appointment, you should expect to have an increase in function.
In some cases, you may experience a mild level of soreness following your first few therapy sessions, due to the deep tissue treatment. But after 3 to 6 visits, you should experience a noticeable reduction in your pain symptoms.
Given the manual therapy-based, hands-on approach with soft tissue mobilization, you can expect real improvement in mobility and function and a decrease in your symptoms with every visit. By continuously educating you on how to improve performance throughout the process, Orthology providers strive to prevent you from experiencing future injury.
Expert Orthology providers work one-on-one with every patient to ensure their treatment goals are met. Therapy programs are continually reassessed to monitor changes and improvements in your condition. In addition to intensive hands-on treatment received in Orthology practices, they integrate these therapeutic techniques into your daily life and provide you with a roadmap to follow for optimal recovery.
Orthology providers believe the path to recovery is an active process. They provide you with the tools you need, such as at-home exercises and treatment-related information, in order to continually improve and remain healthy outside of their practice. This creates a results-driven attitude that accelerates your healing, promotes healthy living and prevents re-injury or future injury.
