If you have ever experienced low back pain, then you know exactly how debilitating it can be. Approximately one quarter of Americans report feeling pain in their low backs within the past three months at any given time. Low back pain often occurs due to overuse, strain or injury. This includes too much bending, twisting, lifting and even too much sitting.
A common question that our physical therapists are asked is, "Why can't I just rest to get rid of my back pain?" In a few rare cases, low back pain is mild and will disappear on its own. However, for most people, back pain will return or persist, leading to a decrease in quality of life or even disability.
The key to recovery from low back pain is staying active and doing as much of your normal routine as possible. Bed rest for longer than a day can slow down your recovery. Research within the past 10 years has shown that inactivity weakens the muscles that support the spine and, if continued too long, can prolong recovery or even make certain conditions severe enough to require surgery.
If you have had low back pain off and on that seems to get worse or last longer each time, then it is time to "get rid of your pain" once and for all! Our physical therapists can help you "restore and improve your motion", treat your persistent or recurrent low back pain, and help you prevent and reduce future episodes. In many cases, all done while avoiding painful surgery and adverse effects of medications.
How is this done? Our physical therapists are experts at relieving low back pain through our "low back rehabilitation program." They will work one on one with you in this program to teach you how to relieve and prevent your low back pain from returning so that you can function at your very best.
