Low back pain | If you are suffering from low back pain, it may be recommended that you receive physical therapy as a conservative approach. Therapeutic goals involve the decrease or elimination of pain in your back, improved function of the area, and to provide you with a maintenance regimen to decrease the possibility of future pain in the area.

What’s Causing Pain in Your Low Back

Your back pain may be a result of:

  • Disc damage
  • Nerve compression
  • Improper joint movement
  • Injury to the area

Regardless of the cause of pain in your back, an effective treatment plan should be initiated. A quality plan of treatment allows you to rid yourself of the pain that limits your ability to perform your daily activities or duties. Following a complimentary consultation, your provider will devise a unique treatment plan to help you return to a life free of limitations due to pain in your lower back.

There are several methods of rehab that physical therapy technicians may suggest. There is strong evidence to support the effectiveness of rehab following a back injury, onset of pain in the back, or back surgery. Although most onsets of low back pain will get better over time, active rehabilitation is a key factor in the reduction of your pain and enhancing consequent function in the area. The recovery process and time is improved if you are in ideal physical condition. Rehabilitation assists in reaching optimal condition and is viewed as a primary contributor in improved recovery times.
