There are several disc conditions that can be present in the back. Lumbar stenosis is when the space in the spinal column narrows and puts pressure on the nerves in the area. This can decrease leg strength and numbness in various areas. Herniated discs occur when the cushioning between the vertebrae bulge and put pressure on the spinal cord and/or nerves. This can cause weakness, numbness, and pain in various areas as well.
At Greendale Physical Therapy, we offer several treatment options to address these disc conditions, including:
- Stretching and strengthening exercises to improve range of motion and strength
- Cervical and lumbar stabilization techniques to take pressure off the spine
- Manual therapies
- Modalities including heat, ice, and electrical stimulation
- Patient education regarding activities, posture, and biomechanics
Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC helped me regain the strength in my ankles and feet to keep me walking and continue to exercise and golf. The staff are all well skilled, pleasant, and supportive. I would highly recommend them to my friends for PT. They are a great group!
