Back and neck pain is one of the most common medical conditions in the country, with four out of five Americans being afflicted with it at some point during their lives. And when you hurt, you want to feel better as quickly as possible.
At OMPT Specialists, we are experts in caring for patients with degenerative diseases such as stenosis or arthritis, disc problems, work-related injuries and other back, neck and spine conditions. We have developed a highly effective physical therapy treatment plan for back pain relief and neck pain relief that can be personalized to each person’s unique needs. Created by a certified orthopedic manual physical therapist (OMPT), treatments focus on the use of manual physical therapy techniques that increase strength and flexibility while relieving painful symptoms as quickly as possible. Research has shown that OMPT delivers quicker, more thorough results than traditional physical therapy.
In addition to manual treatment techniques, we use state-of-the-art equipment coupled with the latest research findings on treatment outcomes to provide you with a customized physical therapy experience. At OMPT Specialists, we use various types of traction to manage the amount of pressure placed on discs. Our Triton® traction table for neck pain treatment and back pain therapy (if applicable) allows us to deliver controlled, safe treatments and in-depth printed reports that measure your progress. AQUA TRAC, a treadmill under water (hydro therapy), uses the buoyancy of water to gently decrease pressure on the discs. During manual traction, the therapist carefully unloads the disc using the hands and body.
Only OMPTs have received the additional training and knowledge to apply these techniques, and OMPT Specialists employs only certified and experienced OMPT therapists. With three Michigan physical therapy centers and flexible hours, we offer unparalleled convenience for patients.
