When someone is injured, either in an accident, at work, or while exercising, they may need outpatient physical therapy in order to heal and regain total function of their body, especially if the injury was severe. Common injuries can include neck and back injuries, which usually affect a person’s ability to walk, run, drive, and decrease their overall mobility.
At Chicago Chiropractic & Sports Injury Centers, we provide a number of non-surgical physical therapy and chiropractic treatment options to help heal physical injuries, improve athletic performance, reduce muscle tension and stiffness, address joint issues, and treat neck and back pain specifically.
These types of treatments can be used in outpatient rehabilitative care after someone suffers a neck or back injury. Some include deep tissue therapy (massage therapy), Spinal Decompression, spinal manipulation, cervical traction, and physical therapy.
Physical therapy for back injuries not only reduces pain, but also helps heal what is causing the pain, improves mobility, coordination, and strengthens the muscles and joints. Personalized treatment plans are designed to help ensure each patient is getting the care they need based on their body’s requirements.
Cervical traction for neck pain is a comprehensive treatment option for individuals who have suffered an injury to the spine or neck area. Cervical traction involves carefully and gently stretching the spine for several minutes, providing pain relief, taking pressure off pinched nerves, bulging discs, and even aiding in reducing headaches or pain in other areas of the body.
