Back pain has become increasingly prevalent in the United States. According to the NIH, 80% of adults will
experience low back pain. You don’t have to be one of them. Living a pain free life where you can enjoy your favorite activities is possible.
Back Pain Myths
Myth #1: I need an MRI or surgery
FACT: Most back pain is due to poor movement biomechanics and posture. It can be eliminated by correcting the source of the issue. Many times these movement faults are actually coming from the hips, upper back, knees and even feet. An evaluation by a physical therapist will allow the specific issue to be identified and treated without the use and expense of an MRI or surgery
Myth #2: All I need is rest
FACT: Just the opposite is true. Our bodies are made to move. Corrective and functional movement patterns prescribed by a physical therapist will allow you to move pain free and return to the activities you love.
