Some Helpful Tips On Dealing With Lower Back Pain
Many people have back pain. In fact, the majority of us will experience it at least once in our lives. Our team is happy to answer all the questions you may have about lower back pain and empower you to make healthier life choices that can reduce your symptoms, if not reduce your risk of getting back pain altogether.
Some back pain will go away on its own. In many cases, however, your lower back pain may simply recur or develop into a chronic condition that can have a significant impact on your day-to-day life. You should talk to a physical therapist if you have back pain and stiffness so that an appropriate diagnosis can be made and an appropriate treatment plan–complete with manual therapy, pain relief modalities, and therapeutic exercises–can be implemented.
In addition to consulting with a physical therapist, there are other things you can do to help deal with your back pain:
- Quit smoking.
- Stay active.
- Improve your posture and body mechanics at work and during sports.
