TBSI Physical Therapy offers a Physical Therapy Clinic with the latest technologies and treatment methods for spinal problems. Our Physical Therapy Clinic is part of a comprehensive, coordinated team approach for people with spine related problems. This coordinated effort allows us to create the best treatment plan for our patients and achieve the highest level of functional return.

We are committed to providing the highest quality of care to each patient.  Each patient will be seen on every visit by the Physical Therapist to monitor progress and adjust the patient’s therapy routine as needed to achieve the patient’s goal.  Likewise, each patient is educated in proper body mechanics, posture principles, ergonomics and a home exercise program.  This portion of Physical Therapy is extremely important in maintaining normal daily activities and reducing risk of re-injury during and after Physical Therapy.  This leads to a lifelong improvement in spinal health.

Therapeutic Modalities and Treatment Techniques


Decompression Table -

Uses distraction forces to relieve pain associated with herniated discs, protruding discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, and sciatica.  It achieves these effects through decompression of the intervertebral discs.

Ultrasound -

Uses acoustic energy to produce deep heating and mechanical stimulation which helps relieve pain and promote healing.

Mechanical Unloading System -

A device that allows the patient to exercise with less than full body weight as resistance, which in many cases reduces pain and allows re-establishment of normal movement patterns and an increase in active range of motion.

Moist Heat and Cryotherapy -

The use of heat or cost to temporarily reduce inflammation and pain.

Electrical Stimulation -

The use of electricity to relieve pain, promote relaxation of the involved muscles, and restore normal motion to the area of pain. 

Infrared Light -

The use of light as a topical heating agent to provide temporary increase in blood circulation, temporary relief of muscle and joint aches, pains, and stiffness, relaxation of muscles, muscle spasms, and minor pain and stiffness association with arthritis.

Joint Mobilization -

A skilled passive movement to a joint and or related soft tissue structure to restore motion and reduce pain. 

Soft Tissue Mobilization -

A specifically directed manual therapy technique to facilitate normalization of soft tissue dysfunctions. 

Therapeutic Exercise -

Specific exercises performed based on the individual needs of the patient to promote healing and restoration of normal motion and function.
