“Back Pain Was Limiting My Active Lifestyle, So I Decide To Do Something About It! ” Finding Relief For Your Back Pain Do you suffer from an aching back? Whether it is a short-lived muscle spasm, or a long-term problem, your back is telling you something! Your spine is a complex structure made up of bones, muscles, discs, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. It is the hub of your nervous system where messages to and from your brain travel to different parts of your body. It is so complex, that it takes years for you to master the ability to stand up straight, walk, and run. Inflammation weakens the spinal muscles and leg muscles, causing difficulty with everyday activities. Getting up and down from the floor, squatting, standing for long periods, and even walking can become a problem. This can really affect your life and the longer the problem persists, themore long-termdamage can occur. Quickly Relieve Low Back Pain Most low back pain can easily be treated with physical therapy and without the need for surgery, or prolonged medication. Physical therapy can reduce inflammation, restore proper function, restore normal back strength and prevent future injury. Maintaining and building muscle strength is particularly important to getting you back to doing the things you love to do, without worrying about the pain.
Whether you have back pain, neck pain, or radiating arm / leg pain, we can help. Your spine must be flexible, strong, and healthy in order for you to maintain a pain free body. We ensure that you’ll achieve the best results for your back/neck pain with the Johns Creek Physical Therapy spine program. UPPER SPINE “ Why Am I Suffering FromBack Pain?” 3 Common SPINE ProblemAreas
MID SPINE Pain or injuries here can cause limited motion and mid-back pain. The nerves exiting this area are responsible for digestion, heart and lung function. Limited motion here also increases the amount of strain on the lower spine. LOWER SPINE A common area of low back pain and radiating leg pain. This area can cause a significant amount of back pain because it is supposed to rotate with walking. Furthermore, this is a common area for disc herniation that can cause pain, numbness and tingling into the buttocks, thighs, legs or feet.
Pain or injury here is often responsible for headaches to the scalp and face. This area helps with overall body balance and the ability to rotate the neck. Conditions involving the upper spine often present as limited motion and contribute to a forward head posture. As a result, this increases strain on the neck causing muscle pain and tension. In addition, weakness and pain to the shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers can be common.
