Don’t Ignore Your Back Pain! What Is Your Back Pain Telling You?

Once the cause of your back pain is determined, your physical therapist will be able to identify the best treatment options for your body’s needs.

Getting To The Bottom Of Back Pain

Getting To The Bottom Of Back Pain There are a lot of different reasons as to why you may be experiencing back pain, and ignoring any of them is not a good idea. Some of the most common issues that cause back pain to linger include: • Muscle sprain or strain • Slipped vertebrae or disc • Tear or hyperextension to the supporting muscles or tendons • Arthritis These concerns can develop as a result of a myriad of environmental issues, such as having poor posture, prolonged sedentary activity, car crash, sporting accident, stress, heavy lifting, and so on.

When It Comes To Back Pain, Don’t Wait! When you experience an injury to your back, or realize that you are experiencing regular pain as a result of an ongoing injury or overuse, it is important to find out the cause of your back pain as quickly as possible. Back pain can quickly become chronic, as a potentially small issue can become complicated when it is not addressed early on. Working with a physical therapist can help you to identify the difference between environmental causes and something more medically based. To get started with putting an end to your back pain, contact us.

A Poem About Patient Success :

We’ve Been Featured In:

But they built me back up from my great fall And made me strong again and feeling tall There’s only one place if you need PT Dr.DanandDr.Heatheraretheonesyoushouldsee In my strong heart they will always stay As I thank them both for the rest of my days.” _________________________________________

“Dr. Dan Murphy and Dr. Heather Moore– Both greeted me kindly as I limped through the door That very first day they put me at ease Even with my pain I was feeling pleased They taught me slowly on how to proceed While treating my shoulder and my swollen knee The game plan was perfect that they worked up for me I felt in good hands with lots of TLC But it wasn’t just me they were treating so grand As I looked around they gave me a helping hand My progress at first was especially slow And my pride I had was at an all-time low

Service Spotlight

Ingredients • ⅔ cup frozen raspberries • ½ cup frozen sliced banana • ½ cup plain almond milk • 5 tbsp sliced almonds

Laser therapy uses a process called photobiomodulation. Unlike medications, laser therapy provides long-lasting relief without undesirable side effects. Treatments are quick (usually 30 minutes) and painless, usually creating a gentle, soothing warmth. If you have recently undergone surgery or suffered an injury, laser therapy can help speed recovery time and return you to a pain- free life without medication!

• ¼ tsp ground cinnamon • ⅛ tsp ground cardamom

• ⅛ tsp vanilla extract • ¼ cup blueberries • 1 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes

Directions Blend raspberries, banana, almond milk, 3 tablespoons almonds, cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla in a blender until very smooth. Pour the smoothie into a bowl and top with blueberries, the remaining 2 tablespoons almonds and coconut.
