Spine & Pain Management

At Sheltering Arms Institute, our team knows managing neck and back pain and recovering from spine surgery can be challenging. That is why we approach physical rehabilitative care using the latest clinical treatments, research and technologies.

After the initial injury has healed, Sheltering Arms Institute’s team of recovery specialists can help you develop the needed skills to help you live independently with the physical challenges facing you today.

We treat a wide array of conditions including:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Disc herniation
  • Arthritis of the spine
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Neck pain
  • Whiplash
  • Sport-related injuries
  • Post-spine surgery

The physical therapists at Sheltering Arms Institute create individualized neck, back, and spine recovery programs to help you achieve both your short- and long-term rehabilitation goals and minimize recurrences of the problems. Your therapist will assist you to become an expert at performing your prescribed exercises so you can do them in the privacy of your own home.

The physical rehabilitation team at Sheltering Arms Institute includes physicians who can help you reduce your pain and improve your mobility. Some techniques offered include:

  • Therapeutic exercises based on current biomechanical and anatomical research
