Rehabilitation & Physical Medicine
At iSpine Rehab Clinics, our Advanced-Practice Physical & Occupational Therapists (PT/OT) have been trained specifically in musculoskeletal (spine and joint) pain care.
You will come out of your first appointment with a customized care plan. Our physicians remain involved as you work with our specialized therapy team, checking back in regularly on your progress, and helping you get back into life.
One size does not fit all in treating musculoskeletal pain. We have many tools in our toolbox to achieve the desired results. Your iSpine Rehab care team will design an individualized treatment plan for you that will consist of one or more of the following:
- Instruction in a customized exercise program
- Education in self-care habits for pain management
- Pain education: making sense of pain
- Modalities as needed (traction, tens)
- Manual therapies as needed, including muscle release and/or Graston Technique

Cognitive Behavioral Coaching (CBC)
We realize that injury and pain can take a toll on a person’s life and emotions. Fear, anxiety, and depression often travel with long-term pain and suffering and need to be taken into consideration when treating the physical pain and limitations. As a result, iSpine Rehab seamlessly integrates Cognitive Behavioral Coaching (CBC) into our program to address and assist with the barriers that may impede with achieving optimal outcomes.
- Postural Retraining & Body Mechanics Education is an essential part of our program which is used to improve endurance and comfort with daily activities.
- We strive to help injured workers return to work at full function as soon as possible. This may include an emphasis on work conditioning and increasing lift capacities.
- Our customized Home Exercise Program is designed to strengthen core muscle groups by general conditioning of the muscles. This program serves to maximize progress during treatment while serving as a maintenance program upon completion.
