DON’T IGNORE YOUR ACHING BACK! DO YOU FEEL ACHES AND PAINS THROUGHOUT YOUR DAY? Your back is one of the most active parts of your body. It is the foundation that your arms and legs function from. Your back steadies your body as you reach, lift, squat, and run. It supports a large amount of your body weight, even when you sit. Seeing how the back serves so many vital roles with everyday activity, it is no wonder that so many people experience back injuries every year. What is a big wonder is that many people choose to ignore their back injuries year after year. When you break an arm or get a cut on your leg, you are likely to do something about it right away.

This will likely include the following: • Guided movement exercises that are designed to reduce your pain level and location as well as improve range of motion in your back. These specific and targeted movements are individualized to your needs. • Education on modifying certain activities that could delay your healing process. This includes proper posture education, proper lifting and movement patterns to utilize as you heal. • Cardiovascular activity that can stimulate improved blood circulation to the affected areas of the back, targeted muscular strength to support the spine, and gradual guided return to daily and recreational activity safely. • Education on a maintenance program to prevent future recurrence of your pain once you have healed. Attempting to undertake any of these changes on your own after you’ve experienced a back injury is both dangerous and not recommended. Working with a licensed and experienced physical therapist can provide you with the guidance and ongoing support that you need to ensure that you do not experience any further injury as you attempt to heal the cause of your back pain. If you or a loved one suffers from back pain, you still have options. Call TODAY to schedule an evaluation with Shoreline Physical Therapy

The sight of blood leaving your body or the realization that a bone isn’t sitting right is something that not many people are going to deal with for too long before seeking medical attention. Yet when pain begins in the back, it is almost normal to ignore it. Everyone develops back pain from time to time, right? There is no reason to seek treatment, right? Absolutely wrong. Understanding Back Pain Back pain may be common but it is absolutely not normal. Most back pain is mechanical, meaning when enough compression or tension is placed on an injured tissue it will cause pain. Early symptoms are pain and limited mobility. If these signs are ignored, the pain can worsen and eventually cause a nerve to become inflamed. When this occurs the pain can radiate into your leg as well and significantly limit your quality of life. The good news is that a majority of patients with back pain, and even back and leg pain, can see a rapid improvement in their condition after proper assessment and an appropriate exercise program is followed. An exercise program must be customized to the individual with pain. Your physical therapist will be able to identify the best treatment options for your body’s needs. Only a small percentage of people need referral to specialty services and imaging.

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, call us today. You will be glad you did!
