Improve function and mobility

Physical Therapy

Many painful symptoms are affected by the condition of your joints and soft tissues - from the back pain that may actually come from tension in the legs to the headaches that are made chronic by posture. Physical therapy carefully identifies the exact problems with your joints, muscles, tendons, etc. Then therapists implement plans to restore function and balance to address the physical causes of your pain or dysfunction.

At Primary Spine & Rehab, we do this with uncompromising commitment to the best outcomes conservative therapy has to offer. Our clinicians possess certification and specialty training in multiple techniques that go above standard physical therapy training to offer better outcomes for the diagnoses that other practices find difficult to treat. In addition, we expertly treat some conditions that other physical therapists can't. See below for details. Some physical therapy practices believe it's best to mostly give you a set of exercises you can perform on your own. Our practice philosophy is to combine supervised exercise therapy with hands-on therapy, to maximize the effectiveness of your work. Research shows this combined approach delivers results superior to that of either exercise therapy or manual therapy alone. Finally, our physical therapy practice offers a multi-specialty approach, so you can receive other forms of conservative care that add to the outcomes of traditional physical therapy.

Why Choose Us

Your plan may involve any number of treatments: targeted strengthening and stretching, joint mobilization, massage, various therapy devices such as iontophoresis or therapeutic ultrasound, etc.
Our Principles
  • Listen: We take the time to listen to each patient and ask specific questions so we can gain a thorough understanding of your personal experience with your condition.
  • Know: Physical therapists need to identify the exact physical deficits contributing to each patient's unique condition. Then the treatment plan can be as efficient and effective as possible. This comes only from a remarkably thorough and comprehensive initial exam.
  • Aim: Treatment plans begin with clearly defined goals. Progress toward those goals is tracked and discussed with patients.
  • Empower: Each patient should be empowered to take control of his or her own condition and recovery. This starts with useful education from day one to the final visit. This involves giving patients home exercise and self-treatment plans they can use independently, even after discharge.
  • Grow: Our clinicians never rest on their educational laurels. Our philosophy is that graduation from physical therapy school is where you begin learning to help people, not where you end. Continuous training in *advanced* techniques is our standard, not just state-mandated, annual seminars.

Conditions Treated

Back Pain / Neck Pain
We can be very helpful in cases of back pain caused by injury, anatomical problems, and those chronic cases commonly categorized as "non-specific." To our clinicians certified in McKenzie and Mulligan techniques, your back pain will be anything but non-specific. Most cases come from chronic orthopedic deficits and daily small traumas, not one big injury. For many people, back pain runs a course of occasional flareups and disability for life. We will develop a treatment plan designed to give you maximum relief now and uninterrupted quality of life for the future. Our advantages in the treatment of back pain include:
Tendinitis / Tendinopathy
Modern science now demonstrates that most cases of tendon pain and plantar fasciitis result from failed healing responses. This includes tennis elbow, many chronic shoulder cases, and what some people call heel spurs. For many, a worthwhile fix requires more than just managing pain and taking some time off. We have the training and experience to create the needed muscle and tendon improvements so you can get back to work and play. Treatment advantages include:
Dizziness / Vertigo
Our vestibular rehabilitation services can extinguish life-altering symptoms such as: dizziness, spinning, lightheadedness, or rocking sensations. Improvement can be had in balance, walking, visually tracking objects, sensitivity to light, motion sickness, etc. We can correct the most common form of vertigo in one or two visits more than 90% of the time.

Injuries: Work, Sport, Auto
Let physical therapy return you to work or play after injury - faster, more fully healed, and better prepared to prevent future injury. In auto accident cases, you don't have to worry about costs wrecking your finances before court settlement. We accept letters of protection. One advantage in the treatment of work and sports injuries:
& Myofascial Pain
We have therapies to efficiently extinguish trigger points, reset the nervous system, and improve pain and function long-term. Certification in dry needling gives us a great advantage in the treatment of these conditions.
Studies now show that if swelling is treated early with decongestive therapy, full-blown, chronic lymphedema can be avoided. Any form of pitting swelling should be treated to avoid unnecessary damage to the lymphatic system, to decrease pain, and to improve function. Certification in lymphedema treatment prepares us to help with this important condition.
