Oh, My Aching Back

Did you know that 80% of America’s population will suffer from lower back pain at some time in our lives?

The pain may be brief, or in some cases, last for years. The lumbar spine is at risk of injury from sports, sitting, lifting and work or daily life activities.


One way to lessen one’s risk of back pain, or repeated back pain is by strengthening the lumbar spine and core musculature.

If one experiences a back strain, physical therapy is one of the best ways to not only diminish the pain one is feeling, but more importantly, PT can greatly reduce the chances of further injury down the road via education, manual therapy, posture screening, ergonomic intervention, and of course, exercises to be done regularly.

Most people are able to see a Physical Therapist WITHOUT having to see their doctor first.
