Back & Neck Pain Program

Treat chronic back and neck pain with the help of skilled physical therapists at Essentia Health. You’ll benefit from safe, effective therapy that improves flexibility and strength—leading to less stress on your spine.

When to See a Physical Therapist

Ask your primary care doctor for a referral to physical therapy if you:

  • Have ongoing back or neck pain
  • Avoid bending and lifting because it hurts
  • Are less active than you want to be because of your back or neck pain
  • Want to be stronger, more active, and more flexible

Physical therapy can help you reduce low back pain without medications or surgery. Benefit from innovative techniques and advanced rehabilitative equipment.
