Healing is a process, not an event. It is very easy to feel discouraged and unmotivated when your results are not coming fast enough, or when we do not heal as quickly as we expected too. Don't forget that it takes time to undo the issues that injuries have caused.


Pain is unique to each individual. What one patient did in two hours, might take another patient 10 hours. Do not compare yourself, pain and recovery are very complex and unique to each patient.


Listen to your body and remain patient with yourself.

At PRO-tek, we are here for you every step of the way.

Call us today for a free phone consult.


Trust your process and trust your PT!

Although MRIs are important for doctors to confirm and show their patients injuries, MRIs will not give you the full picture as to what is going on.


After getting an MRI, you may have to undergo more procedures or surgeries in hopes of relieving your pain. However, the surgeries and procedures following your MRI are not a 100% recovery guarantee. In fact, 50% of patients who resort too surgery to relieve their low back pain suffer from Failed Low Back Pain Syndrome. This is when patients continue to have persistent or recurrent symptoms after spinal surgery.



PT for Low Back Pain:

  • better results than surgery

  • much less expensive than both an MRI and surgery

  • doesn't put your health at risk



An MRI is needed when:

  • you are experiencing symptoms such as

bladder disorders, drop foot, or have a history of cancer.


At PRO-Tek Physical Therapy, we help you get your life back again without the pain killers, surgeries, or multiple trips to doctors offices. We also give you a proper diagnosis, and get to the root of your pain.

Our approach has consistently proven to have produced results in patients that last. Recovery begins with a free phone consult, call us today or click the link below to be directed to our website.
