Physical therapy provides excellent Dallas pain treatment and is extremely beneficial to help you recover after a spinal injury or rehabilitate after spinal surgery. It is a short term treatment, generally lasting 4-6 weeks. Our physical therapist provides modalities that help decrease muscle and ligament pain. Here at Dallas Spine Care, we start you slowly and eventually work you into active long-term physical therapy plan, such as joining a health club. Part of our spine care emphasizes strengthening your upper back to indirectly support the lower back. We advise you to make exercise a habit, an integral part of your daily routine. Exercise is important for your spine as well as your general health. Strength and flexibility are necessary for a healthy neck and back. We suggest that you exercise at least three times per week and make it fun so you are encouraged to continue with the program. A healthy neck and back exercise program consists of 2 parts: cardiovascular conditioning and moderate weight training. Our expert staff will work with you to develop an exercise regime you will enjoy to do on your own.
At Dallas Spine Care, we offer a wide range of Dallas pain treatment options. Often, injections are performed around the small joints in the spine, nerve root, and the spinal canal itself. The amount of relief depends on what type of spinal condition is present. The injections consist of a combination of steroids, short and long-term anesthetics, and are utilized in an attempt to decrease pain in the hope of trying to avoid an operation. We provide specialists trained specifically to help patient deal with chronic pain. They provide a comprehensive treatment plan including the prescribing of medications, injections, psychological evaluations and occasional implantation of spinal cord stimulation. Other medical alternatives include holistic medicine practices such as acupuncture, reflexology, chiropractic adjustment, bio-magnets, and yoga which may give some temporary relief.
