“How Can I Beat My Back Pain?” The Blueprint To Treating Back Pain
If you suffer from back pain, you have probably seen that lots of different types of treatments are available. Medication, injections and other treatments can help with pain control, but do not address the root cause of the problem, which is core weakness. If you have ever had a surgery that involves cutting through the abdomen or pelvis, this weakens the core. In addition, prolonged illness and bed rest also weaken the core. Another common reason for core weakness in women is fromchildbirthandc-sections. This severely weakens the core. The “blueprint” or plan to helping most back pain sufferers and preventing future injuries, is to strengthen the core with professional help. Specialized training and exercise techniques can be done to strengthen your core, relieving
stress on the spine. Physical Therapists are the medical professionals most uniquely qualified to evaluate and treat back pain resulting from core weakness. Working with your physician, we thoroughly evaluate your movement, alignment and strength. After we determine where the root cause of the problem is coming from, we then put together a comprehensive treatment plan to help restore core strength and movement. This helps you not only have relief from back pain, but teaches you the right exercises, posture and movement to prevent future problems and maintain a strong, healthy core. To see how our SPINE Program can give you a strong core and relieve your back pain, call us today or go online for more information.
