Low back pain and neck pain affect 25-30% of the population. Often, pain can resolve on its own. However, pain can recur or linger leading to reduced quality of life, disability, or chronic dependence on pain medications. These conditions may result from a specific injury such as lifting a heavy object or a car accident, or they can develop gradually with unknown cause. In addition, pain in your neck, mid back, or low back, spinal conditions can also cause nerve compression causing pain, numbness, and tingling in to your arms or legs.

At Coastal PT, you can expect a thorough examination to determine what is likely contributing to your symptoms. We perform core and postural strength, range of motion, posture, and nerve tension testing. We also will assess the quality and quantity of your movement and determine any movements behaviors that may put you at risk for delayed healing or recovery. We will determine how you use your body at work, at home, and during sports that may be contributing to your pain and limitations.
