IS IT BACK PAIN OR SCIATICA?
Does life ever feel like one large pain in the back? Back pain is difficult to deal with on a daily basis, yet for so many people, this is a total reality. By certain estimates, as many as 85 percent of adults in the United States struggle with back pain at some point in their lives. The most common type of back pain experienced is in the lower back, and it can happen for any variety of reasons. Being in a car accident can cause you to experience lingering back pain for years after the accident. Accidents at work can lead to similar consequences. But sometimes the cause of your back pain isn’t as straightforward. Back pain can also develop for any number of common reasons — things that you do every day without thinking twice. An old desk chair that doesn’t provide much lumbar support can take its toll over time, as can wearing shoes that don’t have much support, or even gaining weight, particularly around the stomach area. Too many people consider back pain a normal experience of their lives and don’t immediately seek support that could make the pain an issue of the past.
Working with a physical therapist is, hands down, the best thing that you can do when you are looking to overcome back pain. A physical therapist can identify the cause of the back pain and present you with helpful strategies that can strengthen your back and reduce the severity of your pain. Physical therapy for back pain often includes a combination of targeted massage, flexibility and range of motion training, muscle building, and targeted stretching techniques. Using these strategies in combination with anti-inflammatory medication, as recommended by your physician, is often considered the most-efficient approach tohandlingbackpainand is recommendedby theAmericanAcademy of Orthopedic Surgeons.

Being educated about your back pain can help you make the right choices to overcome it as quickly as possible. One of the biggest problems with back pain is that it lingers. This leads many people to deal with back pain for years on end without seemingly any end in sight. While there is back pain that develops as a result of strain or sprain, there is also something called low back degenerative disc disease, which happens when the discs in your spine weaken.This frequently develops as a result of repetitive back injury and can also develop as a result of age. With degenerative disc disease, the space between the discs begins to collapse and become unstable and will cause back pain to develop. When you work with a physical therapist to overcome back pain as a result of degenerative disc disease, your physical therapist will begin by strengthening core muscle groups, which includes the abdominal wall, and will provide you with targeted massage and stretching techniques to alleviate pain. Whilesomebackpain iseasyto identifyaspain,suchas isthecasewithdegenerative disc disease, there are other situations in which the pain may be a bit more complicated to understand. One of the most common back issues experienced in the United States is sciatica pain, and this sort of pain is often a lot more difficult to identify — especially by those who aren’t familiar with the problem.

ATHLETE SUCCESS SPOTLIGHT http://1sudoku.com
"I came to Rebound Fitness during my senior cross country season in high school. After getting tendinitis in September and a stress fracture in October, the staff was able to diagnose the cause of my injury and exactly what I needed to work on. Being a former swimmer transitioning to running, I needed to make my legs and hips much more flexible, and I also needed to improve my gluteus and hip strength in order for me to have better running form. Over the next couple months, I worked on strengthening my entire body while my stress fracture healed. I was also able to recently start running with my long distance track team as we gear up for the track season. Once my new running form becomes a habit, I aim to go sub 2 minutes in the 800 and sub 4:30 in the 1600 during the spring track season 2020. After high school, I also aim to run at the NCAA division 3 level cross country and track and field. All of this would not have been possible without the help of the whole team at Rebound Fitness." - Cameron C. "This would not have been possible without the help of the whole team at Rebound Fitness."
