Appointments Available at Our Germantown & Falls Church Locations!
Since your spine runs all the way from your neck to your tailbone, there are a lot of places that injury and discomfort can occur. Especially when dealing with scoliosis—a sideways curvature of the spine that develops over time—it’s important to address spinal pain as quickly as possible. Since a misaligned spine can lead to other joint problems, making sure it’s in its best condition is essential to your overall health and athletic performance.
When it comes to spine health in particular, treating any pain or discomfort holistically is key. Due to the fact that your spine determines the alignment and functionality of the rest of your body, looking at the bigger picture will likely bring better results than focusing on isolated pain sites. Thankfully, at OMT Specialists, holistic treatment is our approach to physical therapy. We believe that you are not a single diagnosis; your pain or discomfort is a result of disharmony within your body, and our manual physical therapy treatments are designed to address the entire issue—not just one part of it. By creating a personalized physical therapy treatment plan for your spine pain, you can experience a significant improvement in your comfort, movement, functionality, and performance.
Contact us online or call (240) 454-3806 to learn more about our manual physical therapy treatments and schedule an initial evaluation today! We have offices in Germantown, MD (Monday–Friday, 8am–5pm), and Falls Church, VA (by appointment only).
What Are the Causes of Spinal Pain?
Here are some of the most common causes of spinal pain:
- Heavy straining
- Poor posture
- Compression fracture
- Herniated disc
- Spinal stenosis
Due to the fact that spinal discomfort can result from such varied causes, it’s important to have an expert physical therapist perform a complete evaluation to determine the best course of action.
What Are the Signs & Symptoms of Scoliosis?
Signs and symptoms of scoliosis often include:
- Shoulders are uneven
- One shoulder blade appears more prominent than the other
- Waist is uneven
- One hip appears higher than the other
- Ribs stick out farther on one side of the body
As the spinal curve intensifies, the spine can even rotate or twist. If not treated properly, these symptoms will worsen over time. If you or your child is experiencing any of these symptoms, contact us online or call (240) 454-3806 today!
