Duke Physical and Occupational Therapy provides expert care for spine conditions and back pain. They offer a range of services, including preoperative, postoperative, and nonoperative care.
Your physical therapist will conduct a thorough examination and assessment and work with you to develop goals to help you improve function, strength, and mobility in your back.
Most likely, you will be given a series of exercises to treat your specific symptoms of back pain or to strengthen your back following surgery. In addition, a physical therapist will educate you on ways to use your spine properly while sitting, standing, and lifting.
Physical therapy can also help prevent future episodes of back pain by teaching core strength exercises, helping to maintain flexibility, and demonstrating proper body mechanics (called “ergonomics”).
To make an appointment for spine physical therapy or for more information, call 919-684-2445.
