Low back pain is one of the most common and most misunderstood diagnoses for patients. Appoximately 80% of adults will experience low back pain at some point in their lives.
Physical therapy utilizes proper stretching, strengthening, manual therapy and mobilization techniques to relieve low back pain.
Some of the most common causes of low back pain include:
Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD)
Herniated or Bulging Discs
Hyper (Too Much) or Hypo (Too Little) Mobility of the Spine
Improper Lifting Techniques
Diagnostic tests include x-rays, MRIs and CT scans. A comprehensive physical therapy evaluation will assess posture, range of motion (ROM), strength, flexibility and spinal mobility.
