Commonly Treated Conditions
At Balance Sport & Spine, we pride ourselves on the individual treatment plans and customized care that we provide each patient. We understand that each injury is unique--from the pain generator, to the length of time the condition has been present, the severity of the condition, and the patient's individual healing time. Your treatment plan is established accordingly.
Dr Backus is a Certified Chiropractic Physician licensed by the Virginia Board of Medicine to practice Manipulation, Physiotherapy Rehabilitation, and Active Release Technique (ART) in treating painful conditions.
At Balance Sport & Spine, we perform one-on-one Physiotherapy treatment. This is heavily incorporated into treatment plans and essential in retraining painful structures to perform properly as well as relieving stress into effected joints and injured tissues. A detailed, individual approach to rehabilitation is often essential for persons for whom prior Physiotherapy was unsuccessful, who are post-operative and have remaining pain, or who are not yet surgical candidates or who wish to avoid surgery. Receiving treatment one-on-one with a skilled practitioner is essential to grasping and performing correctly Physiotherapy exercises to achieve reduced pain or pain-free movement.
Dr Backus also incorporates, where indicated, Active Release Technique (ART), "the Gold Standard in Soft Tissue Treatment." ART is a medically-patented technique that allows Certified Physicians to treat soft tissue problems with high specificity, typically yielding noted beneficial decreases in pain levels following treatment.
