Irvine, Calif.-based Hoag Orthopedic Institute has launched a new conservative spine and back program called "Back To You."
As part of the program, Hoag has partnered with ProSport Physical Therapy and Performance and Sports Conditioning & Rehabilitation, both located in Orange County, Calif. They will serve as exclusive providers for Hoag.
The Back To You program is an evidence-based treatment plan for treating back pain through a spinal strengthening program, according to a July 7 press release sent to Becker's.
The program includes education regarding pain and the role a patient's diet plays in inflammation and resultant pain. Progress is measured with episodic strength measurements. Strength gains are usually followed with improved function and decreased pain, according to the release.
