In the United States, low back pain is one of the most common conditions and one of the leading causes of physician visits. In fact, at least four out of five adults will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. The causes of low back pain can be very complex, and there are many structures in the low back that can cause pain.
Max Well's therapists begin with a complete back evaluation, testing for possible problems with all the structures of the back. The information collected during the initial evaluation will be used to develop a personalized plan of care, which may involved ultrasound, e-stim, mechanical traction, and therapeutic exercises to increase core muscle strength and flexibility as well as increase spine mobility. It is also our philosophy to incorporate hands-on manual therapy which includes massage, soft tissue mobilizations, myofascial releases, trigger point releases, craniosacral releases, and manual stretching. We use manual therapy to decrease muscle pain and improve flexivility.
Patients are then able to continue daily activity and exercise with correct body alignment and less pain. Upon completion of Max Well's Back Care Program, the patient will be armed with skills to prevent future injury and to sustain a healthy way of life.
