Treatment Plans for Back Pain

Physical therapy can help back pain

Most people have experienced back pain at some point in their lives. For some it can be super uncomfortable and debilitating. It is a common reason for people missing or being absent from work. It can affect anyone of any age. It is commonly a result of injury or over activity, or in some cases, disease or a medical condition. 


Certain factors can put you more at risk for experiencing back pain. Long hours of slouching over a computer, driving for long periods, having an unsupportive mattress, are all factors which can contribute to back pain. In some cases, as in scoliosis, spinal deformity is the cause of the pain. Sciatica is another cause of back pain specifically in the lumbar region. Sciatica occurs when a herniated disc or bone spur irritates the sciatic nerve and causes sharp shooting pains through the buttocks and down the back of the leg.


Treatments for back pain will vary based on the symptoms and cause of the pain. Physical therapy is often an important part of any treatment plan for back pain. A physical therapist will develop a personalized treatment plan based the underlying cause of your pain. They will not only aim to get you relief from your symptoms but also work to improve your overall strength and balance. This is important as it will decrease the chance of recurrence. Treatment may include modalities such as exercise and stretching to improve muscle control, heat and cold therapy to reduce pain, and ultrasound technology to promote healing. Core muscle training is also an important part of treatment, getting a strong core will help redistribute body weight and ease the strain on your back.
