Treatment is focused on strengthening the weak muscles surrounding the spine. Suitable exercise programs are designed to strengthen specific muscle groups in your neck or back. This treatment utilizes computerized equipment (MedX) to monitor your progress.
Treatment usually takes 8 to 12 weeks with sessions twice a week. Your doctor will conduct an initial interview and examination to determine if you are a candidate for the program and prescribe an appropriate exercise plan. Your progress will be continuously monitored and tailored for the best optimal outcome for you.
We encourage your best performance in the prescribed exercises as your active, enthusiastic participation will greatly enhance your final outcome.Back to top
