Professional Therapy Associates Study Supports Findings: Physical Therapy Beneficial in Treating Office Workers with Lower Back Pain
Date:3/25/2013

atment Plan:  PTA therapists devised an individualized plan to remedy Michael's pain, which included manual therapy and therapeutic exercises such as leg presses, lunges and pull-ups.  Michael was seen for 31 visits over a 4½-month period at three times per week initially, which was then decreased to two times per week.  PTA therapists also educated Michael on self-care for flare-ups of symptoms and maintenance of current strength gains.

Result:  Michael experienced major improvement in low back stiffness, with a 90% reduction in back pain.  The pain down his left thigh has resolved, and he is now able to engage in strenuous activity without any of his previous symptoms.

Upon completion of his therapy, Michael commented, "I entered [Professional Therapy Associates] with severe lower back pain, and after treatment, my body is much stronger.  PTA helped me achieve pain-free mobility without the use of pain medication."

Blaine Stimac , owner and CEO of Professional Therapy Associates, states that his team of physical therapists is dedicated to helping patients achieve their long-term goals via therapy.

"The focus of PTA therapists is helping patients live a normal, pain-free life and providing long-term results," Stimac commented.

As a service to Flathead Valley residents, Professional Therapy Associates is offering free pain relief consultations to anyone suffering from chronic or acute pain, muscle weakness, joint stiffness or other related complaints.  A licensed physical therapist will perform a brief musculoskeletal screening and answer questions about injuries, symptoms and physical therapy treatment.  Individuals who are interested in scheduling a free health and injury screening can call the clinic at one of its four locations.
