Back Pain Treatment

Revolutionary Back Pain Treatment

Back pain is one of the most common reasons for diminishing quality of life and for people to go seek medical help. Worldwide it is the leading cause of disability and missing work. Most people have had back pain at least once. Even if Back Pain can go away by itself, it does not solve the root cause of the problem. According to the latest guidelines and scientific studies, the best defense against Back Pain is a healthy, strong and flexible spine.

The Nordic Health physical therapist measures the spine using our proprietary medical equipment with strength, mobility, and strength-balance testing functionality. The results are compared against the normative values of a healthy spine considering the age, sex, and size of the patient. Based on this information we will develop an individualized treatment plan to exercise the spinal core muscles. We have consistently been able to deliver great clinical outcomes with increased mobility, endurance, and strength levels resulting in significantly reduced, and even complete elimination of pain.

Acute vs. Chronic Back Pain

Acute pain is of sudden onset and is often the result of a defined cause such as an injury. Acute pain can be mild and last just a moment, or it can also be severe and last for weeks or months. Acute pain is resolved with the healing of its underlying cause.

Chronic pain is ongoing and usually persists longer than six months. It is usually associated with an underlying disorder, such as arthritis. People with Chronic Back Pain can have stressful physical effects on the body. These include tense muscles, a lack of energy, and appetite changes. Emotional effects of chronic pain include anxiety, depression, anger, and fear of re-injury. Such a fear might limit a person’s ability to return to their regular work or leisure activities.

I have had multiple spine surgeries. Even with traditional physical therapy, I was unable to twist and bend. After a few visits at Nordic Health, my mobility has greatly improved and continues to improve with each additional visit.  The machines are just phenomenal.  I walked in here in pain and hunched over and walked out tall and straight and “whistling Dixie.”  I love the fact that the machines remember me from workout to workout.  I have significantly improved since starting therapy at Nordic Health.
