Spine pain is one of the most common complaints that bring patients to Nesin. In fact, over 90% of the population experiences spine pain at some point in their lifetime. The spine serves a number of functions including absorbing shock, maintaining balance and promoting movement all while protecting the spinal cord, so it is integral to come in for treatment instead of suffering with your pain.
Below are examples of spine issues we treat:
- Low Back
- Thoracic and Rib Cage Pain
The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the body, but mobility has its price. The complexity of the joint predisposes it to a number of different injuries. However, physical therapy can address the factors of shoulder dysfunction and help alleviate your pain.
Here are some common shoulder problems we see:
- Frozen shoulder
- Shoulder tendinitis
- Rotator cuff tear
Although often overlooked, elbow pain can adversely affect your day-to-day life and activities. If you have elbow pain or notice a limited range of motion, our physical therapists can help.
Here are some common problems that we treat in the elbow:
- Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
- Golfer’s Elbow (media epicondylitis)
- Olecranon Bursitis
- Nerve Entrapment
The human hand is made of 27 bones and is surrounded by a complex design of tendons and ligaments that allow the wrist and hand to perform intricate movements.
Here are a few common injuries to the wrist or hand that we treat:
- Trigger Finger
- Skier’s Thumb
- Carpal Tunnel
Similar to the shoulder, the hip joint provides an amazing combination of both mobility and stability in weight bearing. Therefore, damage to the hip joint and its structures can negatively affect range of motion or the ability to bear weight through the hip. Using advanced hands-on techniques, our physical therapists can help restore normal joint movement in the hip.
Below are common hip conditions that we treat:
- Hip bursitis
- Hip replacement
- Labral Tear
- Piriformis Syndrome
- SI Pain or Sciatica
- Hamstring Strain
- Snagging Hip
Movement at the knee joint is essential to many everyday activities, including walking, running, sitting and standing. Muscle imbalances or tightness in musculature around the knee, weakness in the hip, or problems in the foot can all increase one’s likelihood for an injury or pain in the knee.
Below are examples of knee issues we treat:
- Patellofemoral Syndrome- Runner’s Knee
- Iliotibial Band Syndrome
- Patellar Tendinitis
- Meniscal Tear
- Ligament Sprain
- Knee Replacement
The foot gets you from point A to point B without ever having to think about it until something goes wrong. The primary function of the foot and ankle, besides locomotion, is shock absorption. Because of its critical role in shock absorption, when there is pain or dysfunction in the foot, excess mechanical stress may be distributed up the chain and affect the knee, hip and even low back.
Below are examples of issues we can help treat:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles tendinitis
- Shin Splints
- Stress Fracture
- Mortons Neuroma
At times, the conditions listed to the left may require surgery and manual physical therapy is very beneficial for post-surgical recovery. Our hands-on treatment helps relieve pain and restore the normal movement to the soft tissue and joints. Physical therapy helps the patient recover strength in the muscles affected by the surgery and restore normal range of motion, while also improving the mobility of scar tissue.
