Functional Stabilization

At Valley Physical Therapy Group, we use an orthopedic manual therapy approach in evaluating and treating the neck, thoracic and lumbar spine. Our hands-on techniques are beneficial in the treatment of acute (new), chronic (long term), pre-surgical or post-surgical problems. All patients are taught proper body mechanics with techniques that can protect your back while you are sitting, standing, and lifting. Therapeutic exercises will be implemented to strengthen the core stability muscles of the trunk, arms, and legs while actively bracing the spine in its optimal position and thus decreasing stress on the spine.
