Low Back Pain - Physical Therapy Treatment
Monday, October 7, 2013
If Physical Therapy is prescribed for a patient with low back pain, a physical therapist will assess the patient's range of motion, strength, gait and posture. Appropriate stretches and core strengthening exercises are given to patients to be performed both in the clinic and at home. These exercises are adjusted each visit as appropriate for each patient's daily activities, recreational activities, or job requirements.
Education on proper posture and body mechanics are key components to the treatment plan. Other treatments such as hot/cold packs, ultrasound, electrical stimulation and traction may also be used to help decrease a patient's symptoms.
