Treating Back Pain with Physical Therapy

Our goal is to teach you how to use your body for optimal function.

First, we teach awareness of what is causing your symptoms. We begin by getting to know you to understand your specific lifestyle and challenges. This includes investigating current activities and movements that overload your structures.

Our treatment protocols use a variety of tools. We focus on manual therapies, education, motor control of your core muscles, flexibility and strength to address and resolve pain. We incorporate the Integrated Systems Model (ISM) and a comprehensive top to bottom whole body approach.

The result? You learn to move and exercise in ways that create optimal loading and efficient, pain-free movement.

Core Stability for Back Pain Relief

For your body’s optimal function, you need both stability and mobility. Stability depends on the ability to transfer loads. Examples of load transfer include: standing on one leg, walking, running, squatting, lunges, single leg activities and lifting.

A stable core protects muscles and joints allowing fluid, pain-free movement.

If you’ve lost proper function or you experience back pain during normal activities, core weakness likely influences this issue. Reestablishing stability is a primary aim of physical therapy for back pain.
