Not all back pain treatments require a surgical procedure to treat. Most times, physical therapists can treat back pain.
At GoTherex, one of the treatments we try out is exercise. Our physiotherapists in Gainsville and other locations will recommend and help you monitor your exercise regime. We know what is suitable for each type of back pain.
Massaging the muscles can also help with back pain recovery when done by our therapists. Manipulation and mobilization of the back joints are also recommended ways to get relief from your back pain.
We also cater to patients that have undergone surgeries. Our specialists will not only help your recovery but ensure the prevention of reoccurrence.
Trauma can be a result of muscle strain, ligament strain, poor posture, and disc herniation.
A muscle strain occurs when the muscles are overused, resulting in weakness and pains in the lower back.
Ligament strain causes backache, which is caused by exposure to an external force like collision or lifting heavy objects. This results in damages to the muscles and fascia.
Poor postural alignment like slouching or sitting hunched over a desk can cause stress to the disc that cushions your vertebrae. A repetition of this over the years will result in back pains.
Many things can cause disc herniation, but among them is a fall or an accident that impacts the discs. Lifting heavy objects incorrectly can also be responsible for disc herniation.
Inflammation can occur as a result of injury or disease. It is a natural way of reaction by your body’s immune system. When inflammation persists over a long period, it will result in lower back pains that could be unbearable at times.
Advancement in age causes wear and tear of discs. The density of bones is reduced, so also is the elasticity of muscles and ligaments.
