In today’s high-stress, high activity world, it’s no surprise that 31 million American experience low-back pain at one point or another. In fact, low back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide.
The back is a complicated structure of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. You can sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which can lead to back pain. While sports injuries or accidents can cause back pain, sometimes the simplest of movements—for example, picking up a pencil from the floor— can have painful results. In addition, arthritis, poor posture, obesity, and psychological stress can cause or complicate back pain.
Our physical therapists provide a comprehensive approach to spinal rehabilitation that is customized for each patient. We may incorporate manual therapy, specific therapeutic exercise programs and other modalities as needed. We’ll also equip you with tips on helping to prevent lower back injuries and a home exercise program to help you regain strength and a better quality of life.
