Back pain is a common issue that can be debilitating and uncomfortable. While most people recover from back pain within a few weeks on their own, sometimes the pain can linger and turn into a more serious chronic condition.
Our experienced team here at Reddy Care Physical and Occupational Therapy understand the toll that back pain can have on your life and can provide the treatment to help you get back to the things you love doing. Physical therapy is well known as an effective treatment for different types of back pain, but in addition to this, our team has occupational therapists that can help you find new and safer ways to accomplish your activities of daily living and help prevent reinjury.
How can occupational therapy help you manage your back pain?
An occupational therapist is a trained professional that can implement specific treatments and lifestyle changes to help optimize functional activities. For back pain, treatment focuses on using proper body mechanics, energy conservation methods, and learning pain signals to avoid overexertion. The occupational therapists will start by examining the overall activities of a patient at work and recreation and design a program based on this. Your occupational therapist will work with you to achieve your goals and learn how to operate safely and with less pain. They can help recommend any adjustments or equipment you may need for your home or work environment to make it easier for you.
If you are suffering from back pain, give us a call and we can get you seen by one of our therapists. We will make sure you get the physical or occupational therapy program that works for you. Give us a call today to schedule your consultation.
