Why physical therapy for lower back pain?

Physical therapy is a discipline that seeks to achieve long-term health and functioning without the use of medication or invasive treatments like surgery. While these methods can be effective and are sometimes necessary, in many cases the root cause of pain is a functional or postural issue that can be corrected through interventional physical therapy.  

The lower back is especially prone to problems due to the tremendous load placed on this area while still remaining flexible enough for movement. Lower back pain can develop due to injury or age-related conditions that are exacerbated by factors like poor posture and weak supporting muscles.

A trained physical therapist can provide lower back pain treatment in the following ways:

  • Review previous treatments
  • Asses posture and movement
  • Perform tests for lower back strength and stability
  • Recommend passive and active therapies to improve posture, strength and stability in the lower back
  • Provide instruction on how to safely perform physical therapy exercises and other treatments at home

When combined with healthy lifestyle choices like good nutrition and regular exercise, physical therapy can be a highly effective form of lower back pain treatment.
