According to the
Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy, eight out of 10 people experience
back pain at some point in their life.
Back pain can be caused by different lifestyle influences, including:
- prolonged sitting—either at a desk job, or driving heavy machinery
- decreased physical activity
- or bending and lifting improperly
Whether you have been dealing with low back pain for less than six weeks
(acute), between six to 12 weeks (subacute) or longer than 12 weeks (chronic),
scheduling with a physical therapist is important for your recovery and
for prevention of back pain occurring again.
If you or someone you know is struggling with back pain, come see your
local physical therapists at Campbell County Health
Rehabilitation Services for varying treatment options focused on helping you regain your quality
of life, improve your strength, decrease your pain and prevent re-occurrences
of low back pain. There are many treatment options available to help reduce
pain and improve your mobility. These treatment options may include :
manual therapy techniques varying from soft tissue mobilization to
- strengthening and flexibility exercises
- education for proper body mechanics during daily and work activities
- and assistance in creating a safe and effective home program for continued
management and prevention of pain after you are discharged from therapy.
