Physical therapists play a crucial role in evaluating and treating sciatica as well as other common back problems. At South Toledo PT, our physical therapists have extensive training and experience in evaluating and diagnosing back issues which allows us to quickly find the root cause of your sciatica or other back ailments. When coming to South Toledo Physical Therapy, our friendly and knowledgeable therapists will provide extensive one-on-one care with each individual patient. We will teach you proper stretching techniques and will also train you in proper bodymechanics andmovement patterns. In addition, our specialized hands-onmanual therapy will help loosen tight muscles and joints in your spine, hips and legs. At South Toledo Physical Therapy we utilize technology such as our Kennedy Spinal Decompression table to help relieve and eliminate low back and and sciatica pain. Spinal decompression Therapy (using the Kennedy Neuroflex Table) is a safe, non-surgical treatment that gently lengthens and stretches the spine. By slowly putting tension on the spine and then releasing it, spinal decompression creates negative disc pressure, like a vacuum, which can relieve pinched nerves and rehydrate bulging discs and move themback into place. Spinal Decompression Therapy has been very successful in relieving pain

associated with sciatica, bulging or herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, stenosis, pinched nerves and other problems related to the cervical or lumbar spine. At South Toledo Physical Therapy we will work to quickly relieve your pain and restore your overall flexibility. Our cutting-edge treatments are doctor recommended and are specifically designed for you to reach your healthcare goals. STAFF SPOTLIGHT Jon Hegemier, Co-Owner, PT
