Physical Therapy for Back Pain
Back Pain – Discs Don’t Slip
Spinal discs are spacers between spinal bones influencing range of motion. Discs do not slip out of place but with injury or repetitive strain fluid from the center may leak from the disc. Back pain physiotherapy and exercise assists in decompressing nerves, relieving pain and restoring function.
Not Just Disc Issues
Facet joints on the backside of each spinal bone are a common cause of low back pain. These joints control the direction of motion and can cause symptoms when they are not moving well together.
It Isn’t Always Strength
Spinal muscle may be weak but more often have poor endurance and coordination leading to pain, abnormal mechanics and posture.
You’re On My Nerves
Not all leg pain is associated with nerve injury but when it is, manual treatment can assist in relieving stress to nerves.
Bone and Posture
Pain may be associated with bone loss from aging, osteoporosis or postural changes over time. Physiotherapy for back pain can assist with posture and bone health.
Beyond the Spine
Spinal pain may be secondary to dysfunction in the arms or legs creating limitations in motion or weakness that place excessive stress on the spine.
