Spine Injuries

Evolve Physical Therapy are experts in neck, back, and spine injuries. Our physical therapists have the training and knowledge to

alleviate your neck, back and spine injury pain and prevent it from returning.




We Are Neck, Back & Spine Injury Specialists

What is our approach?

Depending on your diagnosis and more importantly, what we find on your initial exam, treatment for your back, neck or spine injury pain will include joint or soft tissue mobility (manual, hands-on work to your muscles, tendons and ligaments), stretching, postural retraining to teach you good alignment and core stabilization and strengthening to keep you aligned. Our approach is research based so you know you’re getting the benefit of not only our experience but also what the statistics indicate is best.

Why we are different

You will always receive the highest quality of care by working with an experienced, licensed physical therapist. No techs. No aides. No assistants. No double booking.

Our physical therapy goal is to provide the best help that we can to ensure you have a healthy, more pain-free life! We do not have aids and assistants because we want all of our patients to get the right care and treatment plan from our most qualified physical therapists. We cut out the middle man to give you the most effective treatment. 

How does Spine Injury treatment work?

Neck, back and spine injury treatment is an area of care that we specialize in providing. The solution might be a simple stretch or a bit more complex. We can help you determine what the source is and the best treatment solution.

Did you know?

Disc bulges are present in images studied of patients without symptoms in 50% of 40 year olds, 60% of 50 year olds and 69% of 60 year olds.

Physical therapy can give the same results as surgery (without the risks and complications) for spinal stenosis.

Obtaining advanced imaging first creates more cost and prolonged symptoms for the same outcome as seeing a physical therapist first.

Spine Injuries We Treat

We treat an array of spine injuries at Evolve and here are some of the most common spine injuries:

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative Disc Disease is when one or more of the discs in the vertebrae of the spinal cord deteriorates. This disease is a common age-related condition. Common symptoms are muscle spasms, pain and weakness in your back, but may also spread to the neck, shoulder, arm or hands.

Osteoarthritis (Joint Disease)

Osteoarthritis, or Joint Disease, is the most common type of arthritis that is caused by the wear-down of the cartilage of the joints. The symptoms of Osteoarthritis are pain, stiffness, swelling, and loss of flexibility.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal Stenosis is the narrowing of the space in the spinal canal, pressuring the nerves throughout the spine. It is common to feel pain, muscle weakness or numbness in the lower back, neck and shoulder.

Herniated Disc

A Herniated Disc (slip, bulge or ruptured disc) is when one of the the discs in the spine slips out of place, tears, or ruptures. It can occur anywhere on the spine, irritating the rest of the spine and nerves within. Symptoms can result in pain or weakness.


Sciatica refers to pain that is caused from the sciatic nerve in your lower back, hips, buttocks and down each leg to the feet. Pain can be from mild to a sharp or intense burning sensation from the lower back down the leg(s).

Spinal Fusion

Spinal Fusion is a surgical procedure to fuse together two or more vertebrae. It is done to reduce pain, help with weakness, instability and deformities. It can also relieve herniated discs.

Fractures & Stress Fractures

While fractures are clean breaks, a stress fracture is a small crack or severe bruising of a bone. Stress Fractures occur when your muscles become tired and fatigued and are unable to absorb the shock from activity. Pain is the most common symptom of a fracture, along with tenderness and swelling.
