Many things in our everyday lives can cause a spine injury, such as poor postural habits, improper mechanics when lifting or performing everyday activities, and incorrect technique when exercising. Trauma such as a motor vehicle accident or fall can also cause spinal injury. An estimated 70 to 90 percent of the population will at some point in their life experience an activity-related disorder of the spine.
Why choose St. Anthony’s?

This allows us to provide you with the individual attention you deserve at your sessions. All of our therapists have had advanced training in spine care.
