Our reputation for helping patients for whom previous treatments have not worked is well known and unparalleled. At Dallas Spine Care, Dr. Robert Henderson is a certified spine surgeon who specializes in helping patients with histories of failed or ineffective surgeries to correct debilitating back pain. He has been in practice for over 20 years and offers both non-invasive, such as Dallas physical therapy, and minimally invasive strategies to address his patients’ needs. He follows his patients for a minimum of three years after any significant surgery to oversee their complete healing process. At the Dallas Spine Care office, we work with our patients to resolve a number of back conditions such as herniated discs, severe back and leg pain, and conditions that have received prior treatment without improvement or resolution.
For either prevention or rehabilitation, short term Dallas physical therapy may be prescribed. For a period of four to six weeks, physical therapy helps decrease muscle and ligament pain. With care, the exercises you are given should progress into your own long term activity. For total back and spine care, you must strengthen the upper back to indirectly support the lower back. Exercise is important for your spine as well as your general health. Strength and flexibility are necessary for a healthy neck and back. We recommend exercising at least three times per week. A healthy neck and back exercise program consists of two parts: cardiovascular and weight lifting.
The Dallas physical therapy cardiovascular component will get your heart pumping, the blood flowing, and have you sweating over a sustained period of time. Cardiovascular benefits can be achieved after 20-30 minutes, 3 or 4 times per week. At the Dallas Spine Care office, we offer treadmills and other cardio equipment to get you strong. Other cardiovascular equipment, such as pools, bicycles, and stair masters, provide excellent results. If you don’t have any equipment at home, you can still derive benefits from jumping rope, running, kickboxing, jumping jacks, and squat jumps to name a few exercises. To strengthen your muscles, weight lifting with light weights is suggested. 3 sets of 12 repetitions are recommended. Avoid use of heavy weights and do not strain yourself when lifting weights. Whether you are rehabilitating after an injury or want to maintain strength and tone, our physical therapy program will work for you.
