Say Goodbye to Back Pain, For Good!

Forsome,backpain isadailyoccurrence that dictates the way you live your life. Every movement, every motion is determined by the pain in your back. Standing, sitting, laying down, driving, walking or running — the pain persists. In ages past, back pain was difficult to treat. If you experienced back pain, whether as a result of a work injury, trip- and-fall accident, or even just as a result of aging, the answer was almost always the same: head home, take a long rest, andgiveyourback time toheal.This isn’t the way that things go anymore, and for several reasons.To start, the world isn’t as forgiving. Heading home and taking a long rest until your back is healed may work for some, but not for most. With deadlines and carpools and work schedules to keep up with, there needs to be an alternate solution to dealing with back pain that doesn’t require you tocompletely removeyourself fromyour responsibilities.

What’s more, recent research indicates that resting may not actually be the ideal solution for long-term back care. Spending too much time on the couch or off your feet can cause the back muscles to weaken and can even weaken bone strength. This could lead to more long-term issues with back pain — not fewer. Exercise, in general, is shown to increase strength and flexibility, supporting healthy muscles and bones, and therefore supporting ideal back health. Physical Therapy for Back Pain While rest and relaxation can help you overcome the immediate pain of a back injury, and may even be recommended by your physician in the early days following an injury, it is not a long- term solution. Physical therapy offers a long-term solution to back pain by using targeted exercises that focus on the cause of the pain.

I was in bad pain and I couldn’t bend or function at all. After just a few sessions with Danielle, I felt so much better! She uses hands-on manual therapy which is very soothing, along with custom-tailored exercise routines that have been beneficial. Danielle is pleasant and professional and has really set me on the road to recovery. I am so much happier to be out of pain and improving my quality of life.” - B. R. Patient Review

MODIFIED DOWN DOG (WALL) Place hands against a wall, shoulder width apart and elbows straight. Slowly lean toward the ground, bending from the hips, while walking your hands down the wall until your legs and arms are at or close to making a 90 degree angle. Walk your legs backward as you do so if you need more space. Imagine yourself pushing into the wall and pulling away with your hips. Try to keep your wrists, shoulders, and hips in a straight line.

Contact us today at 732-390-8100. We can make a training plan just for you and give you the support you need to overcome your back pain. Come live your life again!                 You might be amazed to discover the different factors that could be influencing your back health. Such as: • Your personal level of physical activity, including how often you exercise and the intensity of your typical workouts. • The types of shoes that you wear, in addition to how frequently you walk in different types of shoes, particularly those lacking support or those with high heels. • Prolonged engagement in sedentary behavior, including sitting at a desk for eight hours or more consecutive days of the week, or spending free time on the couch or otherwise relaxed. Aerobic activity and strength training exercises actually make it possible to reduce your risk of injury and to improve your ability to overcome back pain by strengthening the vertebrae and improving blood flow and nutrient disbursement throughout the back. When you are inactive, blood flow can actually become impeded, and this can have a negative effect on the overall health of your back and spine. How Physical Therapy Helps Anyone who has struggled with back pain can tell you plain and simple: When your back is hurting, there is no way to pretend that it isn’t. Simply going from sedentary activity to being active and healthy isn’t an option — at least not so easily. It takes time and effort, and when back pain is obstructing you from getting started, it requires help.

Through a combination of strength and flexibility training that focuses on muscle development and joint movement, physical therapy can address the underlying cause of the pain and significantly improve your quality of life. Understanding the Why and How There are a lot of different reasons why back pain can develop. Even whenyoubreakdown injuries,whether fromoveruseorathleticpursuits, there are different problems that can develop. Sprains and strains are common, but so are issues with the vertebrae, blood flow, and even concerns regarding the spinal nerves. Say Goodbye to Back Pain, For Good!
