Our friendly clinical staff and physicians combine their extensive training in rehabilitation to provide chronic pain therapy. Causes of pain and disability in the neck and back include problems with discs, nerves, joints, ligaments, or muscles. Rockland County physical therapy uses a combination of modalities, or means of treatment, to target each patient’s specific problem. Epidural steroid injections have been found to be effective to treatment for patients with sports injuries, neck, lower back, arm, and leg pain. The purpose of the epidural injection is to decrease inflammation and provide pain relief, thereby facilitating active therapy. Their primary use is as one component of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes medication, physical therapy, and education in body mechanics.
Physical therapy is an integral and vital part of rehabilitation after an injury. Therapeutic exercise is the use of exercise for stretching muscles and joints, or strengthening muscles to gain increased power, endurance and stabilization. These exercises also maintain strength and prevent further injuries. If you have had an accident, have sustained an injury, need Rockland County physical therapy to treat your chronic pain, or have a specific medical condition that could benefit from physical therapy, come and see us. Our mission is to get you well and keep you strong and healthy so you can return to an active lifestyle.
