What Causes Back Pain?
Back pain can be caused by several issues, from a muscle strain to a pinched nerve. The back is the body’s center point and gets used in all positions, from standing to sitting.
The back is surrounded by layers of muscles that help control the joints of your lower back. Often, back pain is caused by a specific lifting or bending incident that can cause the lower back to tighten and become painful.
The back is essential for all aspects of movement, which is why it is so common to get injured. Because there are many joints, muscles, and nerves around the back, it is important to identify what is causing your pain and treat the deeper issue.
When working with a physical therapist, you can identify why your back pain has occurred. You will also be able to develop exercises to help prevent it from happening again.
Common Symptoms of Back Pain
- Aching or sharp pain on one or both sides of the low back.
- Pain going down the leg.
- Difficulty walking or standing.
- Decreased ability to bend or sit.
- Stiffness throughout the lower back.
How to Treat Back Pain
Back pain is addressed at several levels, from muscular to nerve-related injuries. The first step in treating your back pain is to identify the source of the pain. Often, a combination of manual therapy, such as muscle and joint-specific treatments, can help improve your pain.
Your physical therapist will also help you understand why this pain occurs based on your specific back injury to help improve your symptoms. The physical therapists at Pro Staff are experts in treating low back pain and will help you get back to your usual self.
Every back is different, so it is essential to have a skilled physical therapist evaluate and treat any symptoms you may be having.
