Spinal Health & Rehabilitation Program

Lancaster General Health offers a spinal health and rehabilitation program designed to help patients with back or neck pain to achieve the greatest improvement in the shortest time. Based on extensive research, the program incorporates evidence-based methods and best practices to form an individualized treatment plan. Our board-certified spine team members have been identified for their expertise in spinal health and have received specific training in evaluation and treatment interventions for the spine, as well as work evaluation and ergonomic assessment to address and prevent spinal problems. With a spinal team consultant at each LG Health outpatient facility, you can be assured of the same high quality no matter which location you choose.

Who benefits

The spinal program treats patients who are experiencing:

  • Cervical (neck) pain
  • Degenerative disk disease, when the disks that cushion the vertebrae wear down due to aging
  • Herniated or prolapsed disks, where a disk between the vertebrae ruptures and leaks a jelly-like fluid that irritates nearby nerves
  • Lumbar/sacral (lower back) pain
  • Pain from pelvic injury
  • Pre and post-partum back pain
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction, which can cause pain in the lower back and hip
  • Scapular/thoracic (shoulder/mid-back) pain
  • Sciatica, a problem with the sciatic nerve that can cause pain or weakness in the lower back, thigh, knee and foot; sciatica can have a variety of underlying causes
  • Spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal canal
  • Whiplash injury from sudden overextension of the neck muscles and ligaments
