Types of Treatment
Research suggests that 4 out of every 5 people have lower back pain at some point in their lives.
In February 2010, the Archives of Internal Medicine reported that the direct costs of treatment for low back pain in the United States are over $50 billion a year. This is more than half the amount spent yearly on cancer treatment.
According to the Mayo Clinic and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), most back pain is caused by muscle strain, awkward lifting of heavy objects, bad posture, weak core muscle strength or generally poor overall fitness. These factors can cause both sudden back pain and chronic, persistent back pain that has been troublesome over time.
With many treatment options available, patients may wonder, ‘What is the best treatment for my back pain?’ While surgical procedures are often the first suggestion, physical therapy is often more effective – and non-invasive! The physios at BTPT are experts in the non-surgical treatment of spine injuries. We help patients recover using hands-on physical therapy and supervised, targeted exercise while also fending off future problems.
Who Benefits From Spine Care at BreakThrough Physical Therapy?
Patients who have acute and chronic low-back and neck pain, muscle-tension headaches, pain extending into the arms or legs, general arthritic spine complaints, lumbar spinal stenosis, and work-related spine pain may benefit from physical therapy at BTPT. In addition, post-surgery physical therapy is critical for successful and faster recovery from operations such as laminectomy and fusion.

After just 4 visits…I feel like a brand new person. Before, I could barely walk for 15 minutes without my back screaming in pain. Now I’m zooming through therapy and going on walks at home.
Wonderful staff, very helpful, competent and professional. They listen to what I say and are working with me to meet my goal.
Amazing service. They have gone out of their way to call and follow up with me while doing my at-home exercises. Highly recommend.
My husband was skeptical of my choice to use physical therapy to treat my back pain instead of medications. After seeing my results from working with the BreakThrough Physical Therapy team, my husband is a believer now too.
I couldn’t have wished for a better place to go for my knee replacement therapy! They know what they are doing to get you back in the swing of things so you can go on with your life!
