If you are suffering from back pain the thought of dangerous back surgeries with long recovery times can be extremely scary. Thankfully, chronic back pain is now more frequently being treated with physical therapy. This alternative is far more safe and far less expensive than any other methods promising to absolve you from the constant aching in your back.
Often when an injury occurs in the back, patients use the “wait and see” method. They think that perhaps taking it easy or simply taking pain killers will eventually take the pain away and soon they will be back to their normal selves. Unfortunately, this method often results in the back pain worsening eventually leading to invasive back surgery.
Early initiation of physical therapy however, is proven to improve the overall state of one’s back, allowing the patient to return to their daily activities. These results are often seen so quickly due to the nature of physical therapy in general. Physical therapists design specific design treatment plans for every single patient. By designing this plan with the patient’s particular pain and symptoms in mind allows specific issues to be addressed quickly rather than going through a myriad of treatments before ever seeing any improvement in the pain.
