Is Back Pain Slowing You Down? Manual therapy is the key to getting you moving again. Back pain can hinder your day-to-day activities. Left untreated, it can even lead to long-term joint, spine and nerve damage. As one of the most common physical complaints, over 80 percent of the U.S. population will suffer from it at some point in their lifetime. The pain itself can hinder your ability to reach, lean, kneel, lift or bend. It can also hinder your time spent with friends and family. Direct pain aside, minor aches and cramps associated with a back pain problem can make you irritable—ruining your good time.



• Limited hip, spine and thigh muscle flexibility • Bad abdominal, pelvic and back muscle coordination Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t seek treatment when back pain arises. Before they know it, they have a big problem. They might assume nothing—except for medication— can solve their back pain problem. Medication might mask the pain, but it won’t cure the problem’s root cause. 

What Causes Back Pain? A few things cause back pain. The American Physical Therapy Association covers each of these, but the following are leading causes: • Spinal and core muscle weaknesses • Bad posture • Spinal muscle and tissue damage • Improper lifting form

We’ve Seen It Work!

“I feel confident that the LightForce laser has provided relief to our players through some painful conditions and has been integral in the rehabilitation process after injury. In addition, I believe it has accelerated the recovery time to several injuries that would have normally kept our players off the ice. The LightForce laser has been very easy to use, has had no maintenance issues and has been an important asset to the team.” Tim Macre, ATC, CSC S Head Athletic Trainer for the Buffalo Sabres® “The medical staff has made this therapy device ‘one of our go to’ tools when treating sprains, strains, and other muscular skeletal conditions. The ease of application makes the whole treatment very efficient. I am confident in saying that the LightForce laser helped us get our players back on the court faster. It also helped us keep injured players in action through some painful conditions.” Ed Lacerte, MEd., PT, SCS, L/ATC, CSC S Head Athletic Trainer for the Boston Celtics®
