Dealing with lower back pain?
End back pain without having to take pain killers and potentially avoid invasive procedures.
How we can help:
It’s easy to think that back pain is something that just comes with age, or will go away on its own. Maybe you’re thinking it’s because you slept funny, or just tweaked a muscle after lifting something. But for those of us living with low back pain, it can be debilitating. In fact, back pain is one of THE most common problems that we see in our clinic and is THE most commonly referred problem to physical therapy across the board.
Maybe you are confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. Maybe you think you have to rest, or that you should be doing ‘this exercise’ and ‘that exercise’ to make it better. Maybe you’ve been to the doctor or another PT and what they offered just didn’t seem to help.
What Can I Do To Get Rid Of My Back Pain Quickly?
Here are four things you can do:
1. You need to make a decision about getting help. Many people rest for weeks, hoping that the pain will go away with time but then time goes by and they’re still putting up with it. Make the change today.
2. Do the RIGHT exercises. If your back is hurting, you may think the best way to get relief is to limit exercise and to rest. A day or two of rest may help, but more than that may not help the pain. Research shows that regular physical activity can help ease inflammation and muscle tension.
3. Avoid sitting for prolonged periods – Too much sitting, or sitting in awkward positions, can place undue stress on your spine that makes you feel stiff and painful when moving to stand up. Too much rest can actually be detrimental. Your spine wants to move! Wouldn’t it be great if you had access to the proper recommendations to really get you active and healthy as quickly as possible?
4. Get real, hands-on Physical Therapy. PT is proven to help people with back pain. If your knee pain is affecting your job, if it stops you from keeping active, or if it threatens your independence and gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends – Physical Therapy can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.
