Onward Physical Therapy - Spine Pain Specialists

specific joint techniques for fast relief

Spinal manipulation and mobilization are manual therapy techniques used by physical therapists to relieve pain and improve joint function. These techniques involve using hands-on movements to manipulate or mobilize the spine and surrounding tissues.

Spinal manipulation involves applying a high-velocity, low-amplitude force to a specific joint in the spine. This technique is often accompanied by a popping or cracking sound, a result of gas bubbles released from the joint. Spinal manipulation is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, and headaches.

Spinal mobilization, on the other hand, involves using gentle, low-velocity movements to stretch and mobilize the spine and surrounding tissues. This technique is often used for patients who may not be able to tolerate the high-velocity force of spinal manipulation, or for those who require a more gentle approach.

At our clinic, our trained physical therapists use spinal manipulation and mobilization as part of a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to each patient's individual needs. We work with you to identify the root cause of your pain and develop a customized plan to help you achieve your goals.  If you're looking for a safe, effective, and non-invasive approach for pain relief, a plan including spinal manipulation and mobilization may be right for you.

“I was dealing with an ongoing pain problem in my SI joint, low back, and hip. Through therapy and a well-designed exercise program, they were able to not only eliminate my pain but give me the knowledge to continue to make me physically and mentally stronger. I can’t thank them enough for all they have done for me.”

Natalie V.

“I have been struggling with back pain for over 8 years and it wasn’t until I found Onward did I start to see relief. For years I skipped workouts with deadlifts and kettlebell swings because I knew they would wreck me for days. They immediately got down to the root of my problem and quickly relieved my pain. I am beyond thrilled with my experience and will never go anywhere else. Highly recommend.”

Kenny H.

“I began Physical Therapy with Onward after several years of suffering through lower back pain that had stopped me from being able to run or play golf. The treatment plan for me involved using various methods and techniques that would meet my time constraints and overall quality of life goals (and back to running and golf!). I was not only able to get out of pain, but I’m now so much less fearful of what I used to call my “bad back.”
