Back Pain and Sciatica

We Are the St. Joseph Physical Therapy Expert in Back Pain and Sciatica

When your back hurts, everything hurts. Our expert-level team at Spine and Sport understands how important it is that you return to normal life. We offer specialized treatments including the area’s only buoyancy assisted spinal decompression in our state-of-the-art therapy pool. We also perform manual therapy, traction and the proper balance of three-dimensional exercises to solve your back pain. Our staff of expert therapists have specialized education from The Postural Restoration Institute and the world-renowned Gray Institute with fellowship trained therapists in Applied Functional Science. Instead of chiropractic care for back pain, we offer a customized, multi-faceted approach to resolving pain and restoring movement with an emphasis on education for self-management.  

Your plan for solving back pain, a bulging disc or sciatica would start with an evaluation to look at your whole neuro-musculoskeletal system from head to toe. And then, possibly buoyancy-assisted traction in our gentle, warm therapeutic pool. Cervical disc bulges can also be effectively treated by our computer-controlled traction table. There is hope for your back pain, bulging discs and sciatica without expensive imaging or surgery — and at Spine and Sport, it is multi-level, top technology and expert-driven. Come find out why we receive comments like this: “I think you should change your name to ‘Spine, Sport, and Spirit’ because you truly restore your patients’ hope that their lives can be restored on so many different levels. Thank you!”
