If you are suffering from lower back pain, you’re not alone. Approximately 1 out of 4 Americans will suffer from lower back pain over any 3-month period, according to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). During its early stages, back pain may be mild and appear to be an on-and-off issue. But eventually it worsens to the extent that it can hinder your daily life like going to work, playing sports and participating in other activities.
Physical therapy has become widely accepted throughout the medical community as a comprehensive, non-invasive approach to relieving back pain that has been proven to be safe and effective. In fact, for certain types of back pain like lumbar spinal stenosis, for example, physical therapy works just as well as surgery, according to a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. One of the advantages of physical therapy for treating back pain is that it lowers the total cost of health care without the risk of complications that are normally associated with surgery or medications.
Our physical therapists are highly trained health care professionals who diagnose and treat a wide range of back problems in our clinic located in the City of New Smyrna Beach. This makes it especially convenient for patients with busy schedules working or residing around the Port Orange, FL area. Because our goal is to improve your daily life as quickly as possible, our treatment plans often include an education component that may include lifestyle changes and exercises such as stretching, strengthening, and low-impact aerobic conditioning designed to provide long-term back pain relief.
