What is the Spine Institute?
Over two decades of experience and success in treating people with back and neck disorders has led to the creation of a "Educational Center" where we treat you and teach you what works. We believe the methods are good enough - and surprisingly simple! -- to deserve its own name so you can tell family and friends to go see the spine specialists at TSI -- Only at Meier and Marsh Professional Therapies.
Three Steps to Success
Assessment is your first step to recovery. Pain is a symptom that needs a diagnosis, so you can receive appropriate, personalized treatment. We begin with a thorough history and physical testing of movements and positions that identify your unique patterns of pain. From this, we produce a "Mechanical Diagnosis" that is used to create a treatment plan -- so you get rapid results! Research has shown our assessment methodology to be as reliable as costly x-rays and MRI's to determine the source of the problem.
Using your Mechanical Diagnosis, we discover which movements and positions erase your pain and restore alignment and movement. You will be prescribed a treatment plan/exercise program based on your precise needs. Following your treatment plan in the clinic and at home is the single most important factor in the speed and effectiveness of your recovery. Your treatment plan may include hands on joint mobilizations, soft-tissue massage, strategic strengthening, posture training, etc.
We pride ourselves on educating and empowering our patients toward their own recovery. Beginning on your first visit, you will receive personalized home exercises that are a vital part of managing your pain and recovering your strength and mobility. Patients who consistently follow up on their home exercises recover more quickly and completely. When you act on our coaching, you enhance your body's ability to heal, often without the need for long term medications, surgery or dependency on any practitioner. Meier and Marsh patients consistently recover more quickly than the national average -- so you get back to doing what you love in less time and with less expense.
