Your spine is a column of 25 vertebrae all stacked upon one another. They are separated by cartilage cushions and supported by groups of muscles that help to stabilize the spine. When the muscles become weak from lack of exercise or injury, or when the cartilage begins to break down, back and neck pain can be the result. Sometimes, after working with your physician, you are able to completely correct the pain, but other times you can only partially address the pain. This inability to completely fix neck and back pain has resulted in many different approaches to the problem, only some of which have shown benefit.
Evidence-based medicine is the study of what is proven to work. This allows us to avoid treatments that are ineffective or even potentially harmful. Because neck and back pain is so common, it is important to find which treatments actually help patients. The physical therapists at Judice Sports & Rehab use evidence based techniques to help your neck and back feel better faster!
