Very grateful to Josh for his help with back issues that were infringing on my cycling enjoyment. In the past he was very helpful in post-surgery knee rehab work. He is an amazing talented professional, and Denver is lucky to have him with us.
So happy I found Josh to lead me in my recovery. I feel stronger in the right ways and more knowledgeable about my body than I did before my injury/surgery. I feel more empowered to move forward and be able to maintain and improve my physical well being and prevent further injury because of his guidance. So much of this recovery has been focused on educating me on my body and that information is simply priceless.
I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease back in early 2014 and was feeling pretty down after rounds of medical treatment that were only slightly helpful. After just weeks of working with physical therapist Casey, my back felt better than it had in years. Now I have hope that I can continue living an active lifestyle with limited pain as I continue to work with him. I would highly recommend Therapydia and specifically Casey Mcnitt to anyone seeking physical therapy services in the Denver area.
Get To The Root of Your Back Pain
Back pain is one of the most common conditions we treat. While back pain is fairly common, the symptoms and severity of lower back pain can vary greatly making each patient’s treatment plan unique. Depending on your condition, your back pain may go away after a couple of days, but if your back pain continues for a longer period of time or is a recurring issue, you may need to see physical therapist to find relief for your back pain. At Therapydia, we don’t just give our patients exercises, but we utilize hands-on, manual therapy techniques that places pressure on your back muscles and joints to decrease back pain caused by muscle spasm, muscle tension, and joint dysfunction.
