Pain relief…

Is within your control!

If you’ve experienced back or neck pain and stiffness and/or altered sensations in your arms or legs, you know how troublesome it can be. You may also have difficulty lifting things, sitting or standing for prolonged periods and we’ll bet you’re probably not getting a very good night’s sleep, either. At the Human Performance Center, we know you’d like quick relief from your pain so you can get moving again and get back to your healthy, active life. If you’d like to take control of your pain and keep it from returning in the future, you’re a perfect candidate for this program.


How we can help…

Pinpoint the cause; regain function

Back pain is usually caused by a combination of poor posture, faulty body mechanics, stressful living/work habits, a loss of strength and flexibility and a general decline in physical fitness. Your pain may also be the result of an injury. Because it often hurts to move, a vicious cycle of stiffness, inactivity, weakness and increased pain often results. By reducing your pain as quickly as possible and regaining movement using proper body mechanics and postural awareness, you can regain and maintain a more active lifestyle. All treatment is meant to prevent future back or neck problems so you’ll learn how to take charge of your back or neck pain, rather than being at its mercy.


What to expect…

Pinpoint the cause; regain function

Following a thorough exam, a Physical Therapist creates an individualized treatment plan and carefully discusses it with you. Treatment usually involves special techniques to reduce pain and improve mobility using manual therapy, the application of heat,cold or other special techniques, such as massage, soft tissue mobilization, and spinal mobilization or traction. You become an active partner in your own care by learning how to incorporate proper posture, exercise and body mechanics into your daily life. Because our goal is to help you regain your active lifestyle, home exercise and fitness programs are an integral part of all treatment programs.
