My husband and I both had knee joint replacement surgery and physical therapy at your new office in Gaylord. The team is so skilled with their healing hands. Their listening, encouragement, praise and caring were awesome. We are so blessed!

PT An Effective Option For Back & Neck Pain

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) recently suggested that spine-related expenditures have increased without any evidence of improvement in patient conditions.  On the other hand, patients who receive physical therapy for musculoskeletal disorders, including back and neck pain, report positive outcomes at lower costs than using drugs or surgery, as reported by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).  "Consumers, patients should know that physical therapy offers a low-cost, high-value alternative to drugs and surgery when dealing with musculoskeletal pain," said Roger Karsten, President of Dynamic Physical Therapy in Cadillac, Michigan.

Hands-on physical therapy to mobilize the spine and exercises designed to alleviate pain have been shown to be particularly effective for back and neck conditions. Patients with chronic, disabling low back pain account for a disproportionate amount of health care expenses and workers' compensation costs, so the potential cost savings of an early, effective intervention to prevent individuals from progressing to chronic disability may be considerable.

Physical therapists are health care professionals who can diagnose and manage individuals of all ages who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. “At Dynamic Physical Therapy we develop a plan of care using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability” says Karsten.  “We also stress the importance of developing fitness and wellness oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.”
