3. Tighten your core muscles Your core muscles are made up of your abdominal muscles, spinal muscles and pelvic / hip muscles. It is very common for these muscles to become weak with prolonged sitting, before/after pregnancy, after surgeries or injuries. Strengthening your abdominal and hip muscles can go a long way to providing the necessary muscle support to your spine. Speak with one of our experts on what exercises are right for you. 4. Improve your nutrition Your body is a machine and it needs the right fuel to run. Since you use your body all day long, it needs to rebuild itself constantly. The ligaments, tendons, muscles and discs in your spine need the right nutrition to stay healthy. Make sure to eat dark green leafy vegetables, lean protein and stay hydrated. Avoid smoking and fried foods, which actually harm your tissues and make pain more prevalent. 5. Get your spine moving Your body was made to move, especially your spine. It is common for areas of your spine to tighten up, placing too much strain on other areas. These areas,

then become irritated and painful. Restore the flexibility in your spine with gentle, specialized hands on therapy as well as specific exercises.

PATIENT SUCCESS SPOTLIGHTS Helped me a lot with my recovery! “Back to Action Physical Therapy is an awesome place to recover. I say this with confidence because I was in a car accident and my neck and left shoulder were killing me. I could not do many of my duties after the accident so the doctor recommended physical therapy and sent me to Back to Action. The therapist gave me exercises which helped me a lot with my recovery and getting ‘back to action.’ Every time I had therapy I felt better. The staff at Back to Action are very friendly and I enjoyed the time with them. God bless Back to Action and the staff! Keep up the good work!” - Josefina L.

I recovered with no more pain! “Before I came to therapy I could not walk because of my back pain. I could not bend down and could not dress out for P.E. nor for any sports. During my stay at Back To Action my treatment was excellent and I recovered with no more pain. I would recommend my friends and family to Back To Action for any physical therapy needs. I am satisfied with my treatment as I had fun and made new friends too.” - Kayla L.
