Hartford HealthCare Rehabilitation Network offers rehabilitation for patients who come to us for the treatment of neck and/or back pain resulting from injuries, overuse or trauma.

HHCRN Back and Neck Care Banner

Neck and/or back pain is rarely the result of one incident or injury, but rather months or years of cumulative trauma. Patients with poor posture, faulty body mechanics, stressful life and work habits and a general decline in physical fitness are candidates for therapy for neck and/or back pain.

McKenzie Method for Back Pain

The McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® is an active patient treatment philosophy that emphasizes prevention and intervention, and encourages patients to be in control of their own treatment. This is very consistent with the treatment philosophy of the therapists at Hartford HealthCare Rehabilitation Network.
