Back Pain and Sciatica Relief

According to the American Physical Therapy Association, back pain is the most commonly reported pain across the nation, and one out of every four Americans has experienced back pain in the past three months.

Back pain usually results from an injury or strain, however, it can sometimes be difficult to determine if the discomfort you are experiencing is general back pain or sciatica. Sciatica, a specific type of back pain caused by a nerve issue, is extremely common.

Whether you are suffering from general back pain or sciatica, working with a Fayetteville physical therapist can help relieve the discomfort in your back and restore your health. Physical therapy may even eliminate your need for harmful painkilling drugs, such as opioids, or an invasive surgical procedure.

If you are experiencing back pain, contact RDL Therapeutic today. Our skilled physical therapists will create an individualized treatment regimen for you, focusing on your recovery.

Headaches

If you suffer from headaches, you are not alone. Approximately 80-90% of people across the U.S. endure occasional or frequent tension headaches. They are also the third most commonly reported source of pain across the world!

Whether they are acute and temporary or constant and chronic (such as migraines), headaches can all be treated by physical therapy.

Physical therapy isn’t normally someone’s first thought when they have a headache – most of the time, the common reaction is to take some form of pain-relieving medication.

This may help to relieve pain in the short term, but if you are constantly suffering from headaches or migraines, pain relief drugs will not provide you with the same long-term effects that physical therapy will.

If you’ve been dealing with pain caused by headaches, contact RDL Therapeutic Outpatient Therapy, Health & Wellness today. We will help you figure out what is causing your headaches and provide an effective, safe, and natural treatment plan for eliminating them!

Rotator Cuff Injury

Your rotator cuff is comprised of the muscles and tendons surrounding your shoulder joint. Sometimes, the rotator cuff can become torn or injured, due to repetitive overhead motions performed in sports (such as tennis) or jobs (such as carpentry.)

Those who experience rotator cuff injuries or “torn shoulders” generally report a dull ache deep in their shoulder, arm weakness, difficulty reaching behind their back, and disturbed sleep due to pain.

At RDL Therapeutic Outpatient Therapy, Health & Wellness, our natural and non-invasive methods can help relieve your shoulder pain and heal your rotator cuff injury.

While rotator cuff injuries sometimes require surgery if they are severe enough, there are several cases where physical therapy treatments can work just as well, if not better, than surgery.

According to the American Physical Therapy Association, “A recent study from Finland asserts that when it comes to the treatment of nontraumatic rotator cuff tears, physical therapy alone produces results equal to those produced by arthroscopic surgery and open surgical repair.”

In this same study, a follow-up on 167 patients receiving physical therapy alone for their rotator cuff injuries, demonstrated that conservative treatment, such as physical therapy, should be considered the primary treatment for this condition.
