Advanced Spine Physical Therapy wishes to participate in the health & well being of everyone. The reduction of cumulative stresses throughout the body is paramount in preventing deterioration of joint surfaces, thereby decreasing the necessity of surgery. Strength & flexibility of muscles support the skeletal structure & reduce tension on the joints.
Falls contribute to injuries that can lead to death in the elderly. By maintaining good balance, the majority of falls can be prevented. Fear of falling is reduced & life can be enjoyed fully.

2. Review of & progression of exercises. Education in safe lifting techniques at various heights & determination of safe maximum lifting ability. Correct work station &driving postures. Discussion of correct performance of daily activities, sports & recreation.
