Spine & Pain Care
Low back pain (LBP) is one of the most common diagnoses that we treat in physical therapy. It is also one of the most functionally limiting conditions and often the leading cause for missed work in our country. Physical therapy plays a huge role in improving function for those suffering with LBP. At UHS Physical Therapy, your therapist will thoroughly evaluate you and create a treatment plan that is specifically designed for you. We also utilize a multidisciplinary approach to treat chronic pain conditions that involve physicians from primary care, orthopedics, pain management, and neurosurgery as well as chiropractors and psychologists to thoroughly treat your condition and improve your daily function.

Integrated Spine Clinic
We offer an integrated spine clinic that is designed to evaluate and treat chronic spine pain and disability that have not responded to other treatments. Patients are evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon and pain management specialist, a Chiropractor and a Physical Therapist simultaneously and treatment is coordinated based on findings. This multidisciplinary approach to chronic pain is necessary, not only for the physical components, but also the psychological and emotional issues caused by chronic pain.
Spine Bridge Program
We offer a strength and conditioning program that will bridge the gap between your Physical Therapy program and returning to your normal activities such as work and recreational and leisurely activities. We have trained performance specialists that will design a strength and conditioning program geared specifically to assist you in returning to the activities that you need and want to do again. Your therapist, trainer and referring provider will have direct communication to offer you the best care possible.
