Back and neck pain
More than 80 percent of Americans experience back or neck pain at some point and it is one of the leading causes of missed time at work.
Persistent back and neck pain can severely impact your quality of life and energy levels and keep you from doing healthful activities.
It is one of the most common reasons people consult a physical therapist.
At Fernley Physical Therapy, we are recognized in our area for the effectiveness of our physical therapy treatment in providing pain relief and long term freedom from recurring problems. We strive to get to the root of the issue, rather than just treating the symptoms.
After determining the root cause of your pain, we work out a customized treatment plan to begin the healing process. Your therapy is also combined with a series of exercises you can continue at home and education on how to prevent recurring issues.
If you suffer from frequent falls, vertigo, imbalance, dizziness, or migraines, you may be experiencing a problem with your main balance system (your vestibular system).
It is important to receive proper therapy to avoid compounding the difficulties caused by imbalance issues, including a tendency to fall and create more injuries.
Dizziness and imbalance issues can take away your independence and curtail your ability to live a full life. We have success with a variety of therapies that help us get to the root cause of your problem, and work to solve it.
