Radical Physical Therapy provides back pain treatment to residents of NJ. The lower back is the connection between the upper and lower body, and it bears most of the body’s weight. So, it’s pretty easy to hurt your back when you lift, reach or twist.
Lower back pain can happen anywhere below the ribs and above the legs. Symptoms include pain, numbness, tingling, weakness and even headaches. It can be caused by strain, arthritis, injury, or even just aging. In fact, almost everyone has low back pain at one time or another.
The goal of physical therapy is to reduce the symptoms while increasing strength and flexibility. Ultimately, it’s through patient education and involvement in continued exercise that will help maintain the improvements for activities that have been painful and difficult for so long.
