Dealing with Back Pain?

Not all low back pain is the same, so your treatment should be tailored to for your specific symptoms and condition.

Crafted Physical Therapy - Serving Longmont and Surrounding Areas

Once the examination is complete, your physical therapist will evaluate the results, identify the factors that have contributed to your specific back problem, and design an individualized treatment plan for your specific back problem.

Our Craft

Treatments may include:

Manual therapy


Our physical therapists are highly trained, hands on, and use the best forms of treatment to receive better results for our patients. Our use of manual therapy combined with exercises and other activities contributes to our patients achieving lasting results.  The manual therapy techniques include joint and soft tissue mobilization, neural mobilization, dry needling, and passive stretching.  These specific techniques will allow the patient to move easier, with less pain, allowing for a quicker recovery and return to functional activities.


Stretching and Specific Exercise Training


Exercise and proper stretching help in maintaining normal range of motion and provide relief due to lack of usage as well as postural abnormalities.  As unique as each individual is, so should be her tailored exercise program.  Our therapists evaluate their needs of each individual patient and design a treatment approach unique to that person. 


Motor Control Training/Core Stabilization 


Many patients with back pain have adapted compensatory movement patterns due to pain, inadequate muscle firing, or muscle spasms.  The goal of the retraining is to get the stabilization muscles surrounding the spine to fire properly so that additional strain can be taken off the surrounding structures.  The retraining can be performed through education and biofeedback.  Our highly trained therapists will design specific core stabilization, along with a tailored strengthening focus to help get patients back on track.   


Education


Teaching patients to understand and best manage their back pain will help them plan in their recovery process.   One way that sets Crafted apart is our evaluative capabilities in finding, touching, and treating the problem. We continually reassess to see if our efforts have had a positive effect or outcome. Crafted makes sure that all of our physical therapists have the training needed to accurately assess and evaluate the complication before recommending a course of treatment.
