At Delta Physical Therapy, we see all sorts of spine issues and provide our professional physical therapy techniques to help you recover. We see cases from acute back strains to persistent, or chronic, low back or neck pain. We want to help you get back on your feet without pain or discomfort. Physical therapy should be the first step in a proactive and non-medicated approach to treatment. Our team can help establish normal movement patterns and strength for a healthy spine. When facing surgery, physical therapy can help both before and after the surgical process to help get you moving again. We work closely with our referring physicians to help prepare you before surgery and give you the best possible outcome.
There are many physiological changes in your spine responsible for the common term degenerative disc disease, which is simply a process of aging that we all go through. While this is a common occurrence for most of us as we age, it takes a different toll on everyone. Let Delta Physical Therapy help educate you on the aging spine as well as show you techniques to maintain and regain the movement patterns you may be lacking.
Bulging or herniated disc are the next most common diagnosis we see in the clinic related to spine dysfunction. Discs are the cushiony material between your vertebrae that assist with normal movement like bending and twisting. While disc herniations are thought to be relatively common, they are often times over diagnosed as they are not always symptomatic. Often times the pain is not coming from the disc itself, unless it’s an acute herniation, but mostly like due to inflammation surrounding a nerve root. Our expert team can help diagnose and calm symptoms, then work together with you to restore your normal movement patterns and activities.
Lower back pain is one of the most prevalent symptoms we treat at our Baton Rouge, LA physical therapy center. Most people are affected by chronic back pain at some point in their life. If you've been experiencing back pain for longer than three months, we consider it a chronic or persistent case and urge you to seek help. We address this pain with exercise therapy, motor control exercises, and other strengthening practices. We aim to restore coordination and muscle, so your back isn’t constantly straining during movement.
Scoliosis is known as a back condition where the spine resembles an S or C curve, generally seen in childhood. Physical therapy is often used to help treat this problem by inmproving spinal mechanics and strength. Though not a true solution for scoliosis, our team can help make this condition manageable.
With lumbar spinal stenosis, physical therapy works just as well, if not better, than surgery for treatment. Stenosis means the space inside the spinal canal has narrowed, putting pressure on your spinal cord and nerves. Symptoms include pain, numbness or weakness when walking or standing, and pain that feels worse when standing erect and subsides when you learn forward.
