Spinal Manipulation Q&A

What is spinal manipulation?

Spinal manipulation at PT Works uses cutting-edge physical therapy techniques to optimize your spine’s function, structure, and range of motion. It also improves posture and reduces ongoing or extreme pain you might encounter. The PT Works team is highly skilled, with many years of experience completing noninvasive spinal treatments.

What is spinal manipulation used for?

The PT Works team could suggest spinal manipulation if you struggle with one or more of the following conditions:

  • Neck pain
  • Thoracic back pain
  • Lower back back
  • Scoliosis
  • Arthritis
  • Stiffness
  • Disc herniation
  • Pinched nerve
  • Spinal stenosis (spinal canal narrowing)
  • Poor posture

Signs of a problem include aching, weakness, sharp pain, numbness, burning, tingling, stiffness, swelling, and visible spine deformities.

Is spinal manipulation right for me?

Your physical therapist finds the root cause of discomfort to develop the most effective spinal manipulation treatment. They review your medical history, discuss your symptoms, and complete a physical exam and nerve testing as needed. You might also need bloodwork and X-rays or another imaging procedure.

What are the benefits of spinal manipulation?

The benefits of spinal manipulation include faster healing, less inflammation and pain, improved range of motion, and easier mobility. It can also improve your posture, shorten your recovery after surgery, and reduce the risk of further spine problems.

What should I expect during spinal manipulation?

Spinal manipulation consists of one or more of the following treatments:

  • Manual manipulation
  • Spinal depression techniques
  • Massage
  • Dry needling
  • Exercises
  • Stretches
  • Activities that improve posture
  • Traction
  • Nerve glides
  • Postural re-education
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Schroth Method

The Schroth Method is a nonsurgical treatment for scoliosis that uses personalized exercises to restore a curved spine to a more desirable position. The treatment stabilizes, de-rotates, and elongates your spine using advanced physical therapy techniques.

Your therapist guides you through a series of stretches and exercises in the office and lets you know which activities to complete at home between PT Works treatments.

The PT Works team customizes each session. You might need more than one kind of treatment and a series of treatments to maximize your results. Your physical therapy specialist lets you know when to book your next session.
