Back pain is one of the commonest things that people come to see a physical therapist for. People all of all ages and genders have problems with back pain, and it can be the innocuous thing ever that causes it. Sometimes moving, taking down and putting back house doors, installing light fixtures, carrying your children, or almost anything else can cause some variation of back pain in a person.
The problem that some people have with having their back pain treated is that they may not believe that certain procedures can work. A good physical therapist will use all the tools at his or her disposal to help their clients.
Modern medicine can help alleviate some of the pain temporarily, but it will not handle the cause of your pain. Massages to help loosen knots and tension in your back can help, and adjusting your spine can be major factors in your healing process. These are treatments that can actually help remove the problem at the root of your pain, and will help your back regain its natural state of being. After the basic treatment, you will need to perform gradually increasing strengthening exercises to rebuild the muscle in your back. This will help create more stability and prevent back pain in the future.
