National Physical Therapy’s Spine Program/”Back Boot Camp”
National Physical Therapy’s Spine Program, or “Back Boot Camp”, is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary program providing evaluation, treatment and education to patients with sub-acute and chronic back and neck conditions. It is an intensive exercise based program that includes two, one-hour sessions per week, typically for six weeks, depending on your level of need. This type of spine program is widely used by several renowned hospitals and orthopedic doctors in the Boston area, including New England Baptist Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center.
The program features include aggressive spine rehabilitation that is appropriate for most types of back and neck pain, including pre and post surgical conditions and is appropriate for all ages. Program goals are to maximize function, improve activity level and quality of life, desensitize pain through active exercise, and promote physiologic adaptation to aging and disability.
Patients who complete National Physical Therapy’s Spine Program, or “Back Boot Camp”, report better physical ability and less pain. Most individuals are able to return to all of their desired activities, including sports.
