North Alabama’s Spine Pain Specialists
Austin Physical Therapy is North Alabama’s spine pain specialist. Spine pain is one of our founder Jay Austin’s favorite problems to treat!
Many suffer from chronic back pain and have tried a variety of treatments. We understand the frustration of patients who have been to physical therapy before and had no relief; had surgery before without change, been to chiropractors, massage therapists, etc . . .
We want to help the patient who has been told there is nothing more that can be done and medicines are not helping. There are so many people in our society that have been told there is nothing that can be done. In our opinion, that’s simply not true!
Scoliosis Treatment – The Schroth Method
A pro-active nonsurgical approach to treating scoliosis, The Schroth Method, is more specific than traditional physical therapy and is a comprehensive approach that incorporates diagnostic findings and emphasizes patient learning corrections to implement with daily activities. There are many aspects of Schroth that contribute to its effectiveness. The treatment plan is developed based on x-ray findings. There will be training in exercises that are primarily instructing patients on how to learn how to carry over the corrections learned into daily activities.
Depending on the degree of the curvature, bracing is often beneficial to prevent any curve progression.
We’re very happy to offer this very effective and specialized program. Many times, scoliosis patients hear “there is nothing that can be done.” We are here for patients of all ages, children or adults that have spinal curvature. Austin PT offers FREE 30-minute health consults to allow patients to learn about treatments and the programs. Please call our office to schedule a consult to see how Schroth can help you or your loved ones.
