Did you know that one-half of all working Americans admit to having back pain symptoms each year and that experts estimate that as many as 80 percent of the population will experience a back problem at some time in our lives.1
Taking care of your back and seeking out proper treatment can make a world of difference in your recovery. At Edward we pride ourselves in delivering evidence based care. We also deliver rehab outcomes consisently in the highest percentile with less required visits as compared to the national average of 4,500 clinics.
Back pain that is not addressed early can often lead to higher medical costs, increased medicinal use, surgery, and lost time at work. If you are suffering from back pain tell your doctor about the urgency of early intervention through physical therapy. Research has consistently demonstrated that physical therapy is the treatment of choice for acute back pain for returning to a pain-free state quickly and with the best long-term outcomes.
Each individual treated here at Edward receives a thorough research based evaluation and assessment. This is followed by patient education on diagnosis, plan of care, and education on prevention of injury with daily activities.
Treatment is hands on manual-based therapy that is used in conjunction with exercise for strength and stability. All treatment will be provided by your physical therapist and not therapy assistants. Along with your hard work we will help you get back to regular activities or on job in less time with greater results.
