Back Pain & Sciatica Treatment at
PhysioFit Physical Therapy & Wellness

Back pain and sciatica are common problems that often go poorly treated. Physical therapy can help through a variety of techniques.

Understanding Back Pain & Sciatica

Back pain and sciatica are common in today's world. We rely on our backs to do repetitive tasks each day. To make matters worse, regular exercise is one of the most effective, evidence-based ways to alleviate pain caused by arthritis, a leading cause of neck and shoulder pain. But when your neck  pain becomes too great, or your shoulder pain becomes too much, you might not be able to exercise at all—which can lead to increased sedentary activity and even more pain and dysfunction. 

Our team at PhysioFit Physical Therapy & Wellness can help you get out of this vicious cycle and find effective relief. Call us to schedule an appointment with a physical therapist and get started on your personalized neck and shoulder pain treatment plan.

Patient Stories

Lynn’s Story

Meet Lynn, an avid swimmer, and hiker!
When Lynn first came through our doors she just wanted to get rid of her pain. We loved working with Lynn and getting her back to doing the things she loves most. We hope you enjoy hearing about her journey from her point of view! 

"I had a total knee replacement in October 2015. I was referred to physical therapy by my orthopedic surgeon at Stanford. I searched Yelp reviews to find the best physical therapy clinic in the Los Altos area. I was amazed by the ratings and reviews left by PhysioFit patients. The near 5-star ratings and glowing reviews were almost too good to be true, but I quickly learned that they were absolutely spot on. The therapists and staff at PhysioFit are absolutely fabulous: friendly, helpful, supportive and knowledgeable. I’ve been working with my therapist, Mika, for more than 6 months to rehab my knee. She has done a fantastic job rehabbing my knee, and is the most supportive and caring medical professional that I know. I can walk up and down stairs, ride a bike, and exercise for 40 minutes on an elliptical—all things I couldn’t do for the last three years. The road to recovery has been a long one, and I couldn’t have done it without the staff at PhysioFit. I would give Mike and PhysioFit my highest recommendation. If I ever need physical therapy again, I’ll be back at PhysioFit in a heartbeat!"
