Chronic Back Pain
Physical Therapy is the #1 most effective treatment for back pain. Many people who experience back pain often think, "Wow, I might have to have surgery". According to a report from John Hopkins Medicine, fewer than 5% of people with back pain are good candidates for surgery.
Low back pain is very common. Most people experience it at least once in their lifetime. For most people, the pain is temporary. But back pain can become long-lasting (chronic) if a person has ongoing poor posture and body mechanics, unstable core muscles, ongoing walking (gait) issues, or if under stress and/or depressed.
Low back pain can happen anywhere below the ribs and above the legs. The lower back bears most of the body’s weight. Therefore, there can be many causes for pain such as injury, aging, pregnancy, herniated disc, compression fractures, joint issues, illness, genetic spine issues and overuse.
