Physical Therapy Specialists clinic, the area leader in Spine Care and Rehab.
One of only three certified McKenzie Clinics in Missouri and one of 50 certified clinics worldwide. PTSC offers certified and trained therapists in the McKenzie manual technique. McKenzie is a conservative spine treatment using directional preference to treat patient’s spine pain using McKenzie protocol.
PTSC is one of only seven facilities in Missouri offering MedX spine testing and strengthening equipment. MedX equipment is used for strengthening the spine extensor muscles. MedX offers a database of well over a million patients to provide comparative data of patient’s range of motion (ROM) and strength compared to the norms. MedX is also used for dynamic strengthening of patient’s spinal muscles and when combined with core strengthening has been shown to greatly reduce the reoccurrence of patient’s spine pain and risk of reinjury.
REPEX is another state-of-the-art piece of equipment used in conjunction with McKenzie manual technique to help facilitate pain reduction and spine mobility. This equipment is excellent to help patients return to full function either post-conservative care or surgery.
SwimEx is a heated rehabilitation pool for one-on-one services that allow buoyancy for low-impact exercises. This is a great treatment for post fusions or all spinal surgeries, and SwimEx can also offer a current of resistance and between half-mile per hour up to six miles per hour, allowing patients resistance rehab or training on Olympic level athlete.
PTSC offers a variety of conservative modalities and traction as well as more progressive care such as needling from a certified needling therapist.
