Physical Therapy

At The Spine Institute of Louisiana Physical Therapy is an integral part of the treatment process and can be used in conjunction with other non-surgical treatments or following surgery to restore mobility. At The Spine Institute of Louisiana, our Spine Specialists work hand in hand with Physical Therapists to create treatment plans based on your unique condition and lifestyle.

For spine-related conditions, the goal of Physical Therapy is to strengthen the muscles and structures around the area of the spine that is causing pain. Exercises and stretches that stabilize and strengthen the core are often used to treat conditions in the lower back, such as:

  • Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spinal fractures

By strengthening the core and surrounding muscle structures posture is often corrected which leads to the spine being more aligned. With improved spinal alignment and stability the instances of spinal nerve compression can be diminished and therefore pain is less frequent.

At The Spine Institute of Louisiana physical therapy may be used in combination with other non-surgical treatments to maximize pain relief, including:

  • Massage
  • TENS unit
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Bracing
  • Injection therapy
