Active Physical Therapy

By Jerome Hoffman

Active physical therapy treatment programs are intended to reverse the negative changes that occur when an individual suffers from back and neck pain. By participating in a number of specific exercises, active physical therapy helps patients increase strength and flexibility, improve endurance, enjoy a decreased recurrence of pain, and ultimately help expedite a return to a healthy, active lifestyle.

To help alleviate the pain of disc degeneration and other disc diseases, medical scientists have developed and introduced an advanced, minimally-invasive procedure called radiofrequency Annuloplasty. Unlike traditional open-back surgical procedures that require large incisions and a long recovery period, this less-invasive method of surgery requires only the tiniest of incisions and in most cases delivers excellent results. In addition, minimally-invasive procedures often carry a much lower risk for infection and post-surgical complications than traditional open-back surgery.
