Treatment Plans For most orthopedic disorders and injuries, more than one form of treatment may be appropriate.
Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation The goal of musculoskeletal rehab is to help you return to the highest level of function and independence possible.
Back and Neck Pain Back and neck pain can interfere with your ability to function. Overuse, overweight, and other problems can cause back and neck pain.
Put a Stop to Nerve Injuries Called Stingers Stingers occur when the shoulder and head go in opposite directions, the head is moved quickly to one side, or the area above the collarbone is hit.
Find Relief for Back Pain Being overweight—especially having excess abdominal fat—strains the lower back. Lack of exercise, poor posture, and sitting too much can also weaken and stress back muscles.
Reduce Your Risk for Low Back Pain Lose weight if you need to, quit smoking, and ease the stress in your life. All these steps can keep your back pain-free.
