Don't delay relief
It is estimated that over 80% of people will have an incidence of low back pain in their lifetime. Often people with low back pain put off going to see a physical therapist in the early onset of their symptoms for a number of reasons.
Studies show that those who get treatment within the first 14 days of exhibiting low back pain saved time and money on overall healthcare and had a significantly reduced risk of subsequent re-injury. Even if you have been suffering with chronic pain, physical therapy treatments can help you to return to normal function.
What does Mend Physical Therapy do?
There are numerous causes of back pain including herniated discs, sciatica, scoliosis, stenosis, and more. At Mend Physical Therapy, it is my job to figure out what is causing the pain. Once I have diagnosed the root cause, I am able to provide effective treatment and educate you about the injury, what put you at risk for the injury, and how to prevent it from reoccurring in the future.
During each physical therapy session you will receive:
- manual (hands-on) therapy to help restore range of motion, soft tissue flexibility, and decrease pain
- therapeutic exercises to address muscle weakness, flexibility, and to decrease pain
- neuromuscular re-education exercises to improve posture and muscle recruitment patterns - low back pain causes a delay in recruitment speed of some key core stabilizing muscles
