The Origin Way

The Future Feels Good

Know Your Body

In some instances, pain is caused by damaged tissue. In others, it’s a protective response — your body is sending a warning signal to guard against the threat of injury. In either case, the pain is real and physical therapy can help.

Get Personalized Care

You and your physical therapist will co-create a treatment plan that relieves pain, increases strength, and restores functionality. It may include:

  • Manual therapy techniques
  • A personalized exercise program
  • Strategies for soothing an overprotective nervous system
  • Modifications to keep you moving and sleeping comfortably

Restore Strength & Function

Many patients experience pain relief as soon as their first visit. Building strength and functionality takes longer, with treatment for back, hip, or neck/shoulder pain lasting an average of 10 weeks.

Common & Treatable

Physical therapy is a recommended first-line treatment to relieve acute, chronic, and post-surgical pain without the use of habit-forming medication.

Pain & Injury FAQs

What causes low back pain?

Low back pain can occur for many different reasons like arthritis, a herniated disk or uterine contractions. But the most common cause of low back pain is a strain to the muscles that stabilize the back. Your back muscles can become strained by prolonged sitting or standing, poor posture, increased weight, and lifting, carrying or moving heavy objects.

What causes sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition in which the sciatic nerve is compressed, causing pain to travel along the nerve's route, typically along the back of your leg, knee, calf and foot. The nerve can be compressed anywhere along the route but, most commonly, compression occurs because of a disc herniation at the spine or a swollen piriformis muscle at the buttock.

What are the symptoms of sciatica?

Symptoms of sciatica often include pain in the low back or buttock that shoots down the back of one leg into the back of the knee or down to the foot. Pain can feel sharp like a lightning bolt or dull, achy and radiating. You may also experience numbness, tingling, or burning down the back of the leg.

How long does it take to get relief from sciatica?

Depending on the source of your symptoms, sciatica can heal on its own with rest and ice or it may improve with physical therapy exercise and guidance or it may benefit from surgical intervention in the rare case of a severe disk dysfunction. Acute symptoms following a specific incident like moving a couch will typically improve within 2 weeks.
