Physical Therapy

Managing pain and preventing it from extending to other areas of the spine is often preferable to surgery if the patient’s case is not extreme. If pain in the lower back has lasted more than two weeks, or if there are frequent recurrences, our spine specialists may advise back pain exercises and physical therapy for back treatment in order to prevent further recurrences and problems.

Your therapist may focus on decreasing pain with passive physical therapy direct to the patient using a variety of techniques and products including heat/ice packs, TENs units, and Ultrasound.

In addition, stretching and physical exercise is also required to rehabilitate the spine and you may be advised to use daily stretching techniques and low-impact aerobic conditioning exercises, such as walking cycling, swimming, three times a week which will all provide back pain relief. Specific exercise to bulk up your back muscles, to regain some shock absorbing ability may also be necessary.
