One of the key features that differentiate the Physical Therapy delivered at Denver Back Pain Specialists from other clinics is our spine-specialized therapy and sport-specialized therapy. Our Physical Therapists have specialized in the treatment of the spine for a minimum of 12 years and also hold a doctorate level of education in physical therapy. They are either Orthopedic Certified Physical Therapists through the American Physical Therapy Association or are Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapists.
Our therapists specialize in treatment techniques that not only decrease pain associated with an acute injury or surgery but also help decrease the aches and pains associated with daily life. We provide one-to-one treatment options, which include:
