Back/Spine Surgery Rehab
Evidence suggests core muscles like multifidus etc become weak following spinal surgery. Early rehab will focus on improving muscle activation, range of motion, and spinal stability.
We follow evidence-based practice with each injury and post-op surgery while using cutting edge technology such as BFR (Blood flow restriction training) for muscle strength and endurance, STEP principle for therapeutic exercises and various Manual Therapy Techniques including Dry Needling, IASTM, Cupping, Taping, Myofascial
Release, etc to create a very personalized Rehab Program for you. We will work closely with your Physician/ Surgeon team to ensure we are on the same page about your progress. We will listen to your goals and progress accordingly while addressing appropriate tissue healing. We see a variety of the patient population from the High-level Professional Athlete to the person whose goals are to walk, garden, and perform regular activities of daily living. We will personalize our rehab program just for you and your goals to recover from spine surgery.
