Look no further for your answer. Have you struggled with low back pain that keeps coming back, hinders your daily activities, or prevents you from doing what you love?

At our clinic, we understand the challenges you face. We specialize in helping individuals like you regain confidence in your body, overcome pain, and achieve your goals, no matter how big or small they may seem. With consistency, hard work, and our expert guidance, nothing is impossible.

Addressing the Root Cause for Long-Lasting Results

Have you tried seeing other medical professionals, only to experience temporary relief or the pain resurfacing once you stop treatment? This is because those treatments often address the symptoms rather than the root cause.

At Corrective Physical Therapy, we take a different approach. We are dedicated to finding and addressing the underlying factors contributing to your low back pain. Our comprehensive treatment plans are tailored to your goals, abilities, and specific pain triggers.

What Does Physical Therapy Look Like at Corrective Physical Therapy?

  • Full Body Evaluation: We start by conducting a thorough evaluation to identify the factors contributing to your pain. This includes assessing your joint mobility, flexibility, and strength throughout your body.
  • Addressing Movement Dysfunctions: We analyze your daily movement patterns that may be contributing to your pain. By identifying and addressing movement dysfunctions, we can help restore pain-free movement.
  • Personalized Plan of Care: Based on your evaluation results and goals, we develop a customized plan of care. This plan is designed to address the root causes of your pain and help you regain strength and mobility.
  • Active Rehab Clinic: We are an active rehab clinic, which means we focus on building resiliency in your body and adapting it to endure the activities you love. Our treatments go beyond symptom management to provide long-lasting results.

Common Diagnoses and What They Mean


  • Sciatica is a common diagnosis, often given even when it may not be the actual cause of your pain.
  • True sciatica involves nerve pain that radiates down the back of the leg and into the calf. It is important to identify if the pain reaches the calf, as that indicates involvement of the nerve.
  • Pinched nerves in the low back or hip can cause sciatic pain.
  • Bulging discs or decreased space in facet joints can also contribute to sciatica.

Bulging Disc:

  • Bulging discs are another commonly diagnosed condition, but they are not always the primary source of pain.
  • Getting an MRI for low back pain should be considered when extensive symptoms are present, such as tingling in both legs, bowel or bladder trouble, or tingling in the groin area. Otherwise, seeking a Physical Therapist's advice is recommended.
  • MRIs often show various age-related changes, but they do not determine the exact source of your pain or necessitate injections or surgery.
  • Research shows that Physical Therapy can often yield better long-term outcomes for low back pain compared to surgery.

Facet Joint Dysfunction:

  • Facet joints are small joints on the side of the spine that enable movement. They can deteriorate due to excessive compression, mechanical breakdown, or lack of stability and control in the spine.
  • Facet joint dysfunction typically causes pain on one side and feels like a pinch.
  • This condition can also refer pain to the front or back of the thigh, or the buttock, with certain movements.
