Back Pain/Spine Therapy

Although common, back pain is often misunderstood and left untreated. Athletico continues to develop and train a multitude of Physical Therapists with specific, hands-on skills to provide the most optimal patient outcome. This hands-on technique is often referred to as manual therapy. Our Spine Specialists reduce symptoms and identify and treat the source of pain. We believe in providing specificity of care for all conditions and ensuring every treatment session is valuable.

Athletico Physical Therapists have advanced certification in manual therapy and adhere to evidence-based practice principles making the spine specialty program an excellent treatment option.
