Neck pain and back pain are among the most common reasons for doctor visits and are major causes of disability, lost work days, and high healthcare costs in Chester County, PA. Almost 50% of adults experience neck pain and 80% of adults experience back pain at some point in their lives. This pain can be located centrally at the spine, but can also be located in the arm or leg. The pain can run the spectrum of mild and annoying pain to severe and debilitating pain that can often interfere with work, recreational, or household activities and have a major impact on a person's quality of life.
Physical Therapy is one of the most common research-supported and effective methods of relieving neck pain or back pain and movement limitations. Early intervention by Physical Therapy has proven to shorten the duration of pain and movement problems.

Spine Care Treatment options may include, but are not limited to: modalities (ie: electrical stimulation), traction, manual therapy, flexibility training, strength training, and warm water aquatic therapy. In all cases, the Physical Therapist will provide you with the necessary education as it relates to posture, body mechanics, work conditioning or modification of activity.
