Low Back Pain

Low back pain is a potentially debilitating condition that can be effectively reduced if proper treatment is administered.  Low back pain can be created from tight muscles, a muscle strain, poor posture, disc injury, fracture or imbalances in the pelvis.  A physical therapist can diagnose the source of low back pain and has many tools to reduce low back pain such as massage, stretching, biomechanics consulting, spinal manipulation and mobilization.  Patients often are amazed how effective physical therapy is in reducing back pain, especially patients that have had problems with their back for an extended period of time.
