Back pain is one of the most common reasons why people go to their doctor or miss work. According to the Mayo clinic, 80% of all people will experience low back pain some time during their lives.
Who gets back pain?
Men and women are equally affected by low back pain, which can range in intensity from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp sensation that leaves the person incapacitated. Pain can begin abruptly as a result of an accident or by lifting something heavy, or it can develop over time due to age-related changes of the spine. Sedentary lifestyles also can set the stage for low back pain, especially when a weekday routine of getting too little exercise is punctuated by strenuous weekend workout.
How will physical therapy help?
After the initial evaluation, an experienced physical therapist will create a plan based on the patients age and injury. Exercises will be given that will improve both range of motion and strength therefore restoring normal functional mobility.
