Over 80% of the general population will suffer from some type of back pain or injury at some point in their lives. The key to maintaining good back health or recovering from an injury is good strength of your core muscles that support the neck and back.

Throughout the therapy sessions, we emphasize the patient’s role in his or her recovery and lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy spine.
