Back & Neck Injuries

Our back and neck injury treatments are composed of manual physical therapy techniques that relieve pain and restore function.

Why seek treatment?

Many of us experience back or neck pain, and most of the time it quickly goes away without need of treatment. If the pain lasts longer than several weeks, is accompanied by symptoms into the arms or legs, or develops at the same time as another systemic situation, it is a good idea to seek medical intervention.

What causes back and neck pain?

The spine is an amazingly complex structure. Intervertebral discs, numerous ligaments, facet joints and their capsules, and spinal muscles connect its 24 vertebrae. Together, these tissues work to move the spine in a controlled manner while protecting the spinal cord and its nerves. Pain in the back or neck can be experienced if there is an injury or irritation to any of the spine's structures. The pain may be due to a recent trauma - but it is most often the result of small traumas, repeated over time.

How can Advanced Center for Physical Therapy help?

One of our expert therapists can determine the source of pain, then develop a plan to return you to your usual activities, as safely and quickly as possible.

What treatments are used?

The physical therapists at Advanced Center for Physical Therapy have advanced training in a specialty area known as manual physical therapy. That means that we are trained to examine the stability of the passive structures of the spine (joints, discs, ligaments, etc.), evaluate the strength and flexibility of the associated muscles and joints, and observe posture and movement patterns. After an evaluation that identifies the location and cause of the injury, treatment can begin. Depending on your individual needs, your treatment plan may include a wide variety of interventions. Your physical therapist may use hands-on techniques such as myofascial release and joint mobilization. You may receive modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation or traction. And you will likely receive instruction in posture, ergonomics and body mechanics - as well as sport-specific movement re-education - to prevent recurrence of pain. These may include core-stabilization exercises, yoga type stretching, Pilates, and other safe strengthening exercises. Ultimately you will receive a custom program with exercises tailored to your specific needs.

What is the goal?

Our goal at Advanced Center for Physical Therapy is to relieve not only your current pain, but to give you the tools to prevent the pain from recurring.

Manual Physical Therapy

Manual physical therapy is an effective group of techniques designed to decrease pain and improve range of motion and flexibility to stiff joints and muscles

What does manual physical therapy involve?

Manual physical therapy involves one-on-one, hands-on, active and passive intervention techniques. We have found it is most effective when combined with therapeutic exercise and patient education.

How is it approached at Advanced Center for Physical Therapy?

Before designing a treatment program, your physical therapist will first assess joint alignment and mobility; muscle length, strength and balance; and the movement coordination of any injured joints and muscles in functional patterns.
As two key components, your manual physical therapy treatment will involve mobilization - skilled, passive movements to joints and their associated soft tissue structures. Other hands-on techniques may also be used, such as massage, stretching and deep pressure. In addition, there are several therapeutic techniques designed to improve movement patterns, including neuromuscular re-education, motor control training and core stabilization training. These techniques require advanced training and education that can only be provided by a physical therapist.

What is the goal?

The goal of manual physical therapy is the restoration of injured tissues to normal function. Once your pain has been reduced and joint mobility improved, it will be much easier for you to regain optimal and efficient movement patterns and restore maximum function.

Why is it a specialty at Advanced Center for Physical Therapy?

Individuals with a variety of disabilities and orthopedic conditions that result in disorders of movement will benefit from manual physical therapy. We have found that manual physical therapy combined with therapeutic exercise can produce rapid pain relief and improvement in function.Many of our therapists have advanced training in manual physical therapy and movement dysfunctions.

Orthotics

Evaluation for and assistance with orthotics, plus additional treatment as necessary

What is an orthotic?

An orthotic is a custom-made insole designed to support and controls the motions of the foot. Through this control, the orthotic device can also affect the knees, hips, pelvis and back. Orthotics are made from a variety of materials, based on your individual needs - a firmer device provides control and support, while a softer one offers shock absorption and comfort.

Who would benefit from an orthotic device?

Orthotics can be useful for all kinds of people - from athletes with knee pain to production line workers with arch pain. Pain in the foot, ankle, knee, hip or back may be the result of a hidden or obvious problem of foot structure and function. Orthotics may decrease painful symptoms in one or more of these areas by supporting the movement of the lower extremity through control of the foot.

What orthotic services are offered by Advanced Center for Physical Therapy?

First, your need for an orthotic device will be evaluated. Many of our therapists have advanced training and years of experience evaluating the need for - and potentially beneficial effects of - orthotic devices. After the evaluation, your physical therapist will discuss your choice of footwear and desired activities, then prepare to fabricate the orthotic for you. This involves taking measurements, analyzing how your body moves and molding the material. In some cases, we may suggest you go to a laboratory where they will make a cast impression of your foot, and it's all done in the name of ensuring the best possible fit, control and comfort of the device.

What if an orthotic device isn't necessary?

Our physical therapists can provide counseling regarding your footwear, as well as suggestions regarding the use of an over-the-counter insole.

What happens after I receive the orthotic device?

Your physical therapist will fit it to you and your shoes. And that may just be the beginning. Orthotics is just one part of a complete rehabilitation program. Manual therapy, exercise and movement re-education could also be a part of your successful return to activity.

Osteoporosis

Safety measures and exercise programs for individuals impacted by osteoporosis

Osteoporosis: an overview

Osteoporosis is a weakening of bone caused by hormonal changes. It develops more often in women, but it can also occur in men. For women, it may be caused by the loss of estrogen at the onset of menopause. And for either sex, the effects of long-term use of certain medications - especially steroids - can lead to osteoporosis. When a diagnosis of osteoporosis is made, it means the bones have reduced density and hardness because they have lost a vital portion of their mineral (especially calcium) content. Osteoporosis is diagnosed with a special type of bone scan.

What services does Advanced Center for Physical Therapy offer for those dealing with osteoporosis, or osteoporosis in combination with other musculoskeletal problems?

Individuals who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis must be very careful to protect themselves from falls, because they are at a higher risk of bone fracture than the general population. Your physical therapist can provide expert advice on fall prevention measures; suggestions for daily life modifications to increase efficiency and safety; and a personalized exercise program to preserve functional strength and encourage an active lifestyle while decreasing the potential for falls and possible fractures. Exercise has been shown to improve bone density, prevent bone loss and maintain healthier bones, and it can be an important complement to medical care for patients with osteoporosis.

Before I Schedule My First Visit

What do you need to do before you schedule your first appointment with us? It's simple.

1. You may see a physical therapist at Advanced Center for Physical Therapy without a referral or prescription. However, some insurance plans will not pay for physical therapy without a written PT referral. Contact your medical provider, such as your doctor, chiropractor, podiatrist, dentist, osteopath, or specialist, and ask for a written referral to physical therapy. Your primary medical practitioner can fax a prescription to us especially if they have seen you for a condition in the past. Your primary medical practitioner may want to see you for an appointment to evaluate your disorder first before they give you a written referral to physical therapy.

Insurance companies generally accept prescriptions from physicians, osteopathic practitioners, podiatrists, naturopaths. Non-physician practitioners include physician assistants (PA-C), and nurses. In some cases dentists and chiropractors may refer.

2. Once you have the prescription or referral for PT, call our clinic most conveniently located for you. You will be asked questions regarding your insurance coverage. Have your insurance card in front of you. You will need:

  • Your ID and group number,
  • Your birth date and that of the subscriber's, if not yourself,
  • An insurance customer service phone number so that we may call them to verify benefits. We do this as a service for our clients to help you with insurance coverage for physical therapy services.

3. Next, an initial evaluation appointment time can be established. We will do our best to accommodate your scheduling needs. All of our clinics have early morning and early evening hours to assist in scheduling ease. These particular times of day are in high demand, so please be prepared to be flexible for your initial evaluation, which takes longer. Plan to be in the clinic an hour to an hour and a half for your first visit. Subsequent visits should take between 45 minutes to an hour. Click "About Your First Visit" for details about what to expect when you first visit one of our locations.

  • Your insurance card
  • The referral/prescription for PT
  • Any applicable co-pay

To ensure accuracy of your records, please keep us informed of any changes that may occur such as: insurance coverage, change in address, change in physician, or any other pertinent information.

During the initial evaluation, the physical therapist will examine you and will establish a plan or care for further treatment and begin a home exercise program. Our therapists are trained in manual therapy techniques to assist in your recovery from injury or dysfunction.

Your therapist will develop a treatment plan that will include your own personal goals, as well as goals established by the therapist. These goals will be reviewed on a regular basis to track progress and improvement in your program. The evaluation will take approximately 60 minutes.
