Physical Therapy for Back Pain
Back pain is one of the most common conditions we treat. While back pain is fairly common, the symptoms and severity of lower back pain can vary greatly making each patient’s treatment plan unique. Your back is a network of spinal muscles, nerves, bones, discs and tendons in the lumbar spine. Depending on your condition, your back pain may go away after a couple of days, but if your back pain continues for a longer period of time or is a recurring issue, you may need to see physical therapist to find relief for your back pain. At Therapydia, we don’t just give our patients exercises, but we utilize hands-on, manual therapy techniques that places pressure on your back muscles and joints to decrease back pain caused by muscle spasm, muscle tension, and joint dysfunction.
Our job as PTs is to determine the source of back pain and treat it accordingly. This is often accomplished with a thorough musculoskeletal exam and typically without the need for costly medical imaging.
