Our rehabilitation approach focuses on improving muscular endurance, balance, flexibility, coordination, and strength through targeted therapeutic activities. The objective is to minimize pain and maximize function. To enhance the healing process and increase patient comfort, we utilize various therapies, including electrical muscle stimulation, heat or ice application, muscle relaxation techniques, spinal traction, and trigger point therapy. Cervical Traction is performed to gently open individual vertebrae and extremity segments, reducing spasms and enhancing mobility, circulation, and joint nutrition. Therapeutic exercise training is also incorporated to boost strength, endurance, range of motion, and flexibility. These activities address specific parameters to optimize your overall physical well-being.

Have you recently experienced a sharp, stabbing pain in your heel when you first step out of bed? It could be a sign of plantar fasciitis, a common condition characterized by weakness, swelling, or inflammation in the heel. The plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that supports the arch of your foot, can become strained or overused, leading to heel pain and difficulty walking.
Factors such as being an active runner, having abnormal arches, wearing unsupportive shoes, tight Achilles tendon, or recent changes in physical activities can increase the risk of developing plantar fasciitis.
When you visit Goldsboro Spine Center, our experienced professionals will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your medical history and symptoms. They will then determine the best treatment options for your specific case.
While traditional medical approaches may involve prescribing pain medication and rest, our experts at Goldsboro Spine Center take a more hands-on approach. We have found that stretching exercises can be highly effective in relieving severe heel pain. Your rehabilitation specialist will guide you through a selection of stretches to perform both during sessions and at home to improve your condition. Additionally, our team may provide nutritional and lifestyle counseling to help prevent future episodes of plantar fasciitis. Physical therapy can also be utilized to enhance functional performance, increase range of motion, and reduce inflammation and muscle spasms in the affected areas.
Poor Balance / Risk of Falling
Maintaining balance is crucial, especially for older adults who are at a higher risk of falls. Factors like muscle weakness, arthritis, and neurological conditions can impact balance. It’s important to recognize changes in balance, as falls can lead to severe injuries. Incorporating exercises that target balance can significantly reduce the risk of falling. One simple test is to try balancing on one leg for 10 seconds without any difficulty. If balance is compromised, it’s essential to work on improving it. Focus on exercises that enhance strength, coordination, and stability. By regularly performing balance-enhancing exercises, you can increase your confidence and reduce the risk of falls. Stay active, maintain your independence, and enjoy a healthier life.
