Ochsner Therapy & Wellness Back Care Program

Back pain and related symptoms are among the most frequent medical complaints in our country today and cost the U.S. health care system over $100 billion annually. The prevalence of these symptoms have initiated a wide range of tests and treatments that are not always evidence based, leading to uncertainty about their safety and contributing to a rise in complication rates.

The Ochsner Therapy & Wellness Back Care Program brings an effective solution for back and neck pain to our patients, which provides quality, non-surgical treatment to help improve outcomes while significantly reducing costs. This solution is comprised of six components:

  • Risk Analysis
  • Outcomes
  • Physician Evaluation
  • Testing
  • Evidence-Based Therapy
  • Health Coaching

The treatment is a ten week program whereby patients suffering from chronic back and neck pain experience improved muscle strength, disc health, increased connective tissue thickness, endurance, mobility and function.

Following the ten week treatment program, patients gradually reduce treatment from two times per week to once per month.
