Back & Neck
Back pain is extremely common - 4 out of every 5 people will experience lower back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain is often caused by muscle strain, bad posture, poor overall fitness, and weak core muscles. Physical therapy is an effective treatment for people who experience pain associated with these types of problems.
According to the Mayo Clinic and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), most back pain is caused by muscle strain, awkward lifting of heavy objects, bad posture, weak core muscle strength or generally poor overall fitness. These factors can cause both sudden back pain and chronic, persistent back pain that has been troublesome over time.
With many treatment options available, patients may wonder, ‘What is the best treatment for my back pain?’ While surgical procedures are often the first suggestion, physical therapy is often more effective – and non-invasive! The therapists at PickPT are experts in the non-surgical treatment of spine injuries. We help patients recover using hands-on physical therapy and supervised, targeted exercise while also fending off future problems.
