Back Pain Q&A

What causes back pain?

Acute back may be the result of muscle overuse from sports, your job, or your usual activities. This type of pain often resolves on its own with home care within a few days.

If your back pain lasts longer than three months, it’s considered chronic. Chronic back pain can develop because of underlying medical issues or degenerative changes in your spine.

The most common causes of chronic back pain include:

  • Sciatica

  • Arthritis

  • Osteoporosis

  • Herniated disc

  • Compressed nerves

  • Degenerative disc disease

Pain from these conditions can worsen over time. With routine physical therapy, you can strengthen the muscles that support your back so you have less pain and more mobility.

When should I seek physical therapy for back pain?

Everyone tolerates pain differently. When chronic back pain begins to interfere with your ability to work or stay physically active, schedule a consultation at Apex Wellness.

Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones take time to review your medical history and activities to determine the cause of your pain. They create a custom treatment plan using physical therapy exercises and techniques to reduce inflammation and help you achieve long-term pain relief.

How does physical therapy help back pain?

To address the root cause of your back pain, Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones customize an evidence-based program that may include:

  • Heat and ice therapy

  • Stretching exercises

  • Strengthening exercises

  • Low-impact aerobic exercises

Your program focuses on reducing your pain and promoting natural healing in your spine. Exercises also improve your balance and strengthen your muscles to reduce your risk for additional injuries.

At Apex Wellness, you can also receive personalized wellness services that focus on improving your nutrition, managing your stress, and preventing chronic diseases. The doctors provide guidance to help you lose weight and take unnecessary pressure off your back to keep you pain-free and active.
