Relief for Back Pain

The Mayo Clinic predicts that most adults living in the United States will experience back pain at some point in their lives. On a global level, back pain is the number one reason for disability and missed work. The good news is there are options for treating back pain that can bring significant relief without surgery or extended recovery periods.

Causes of Back Pain

Back pain may be attributed to a wide variety of causes. Younger patients are more likely to experience back pain for the following reasons:

  • Muscle or ligament strain
  • Herniated disc
  • Soft tissue strain
  • Skeletal irregularities

Older patients may see other potential causes for their back pain, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Disc disease
  • Spinal degeneration
  • Compression fractures

Diagnosing the cause of the pain is an important step in finding the best treatment for your specific issue. However, there are a number of basic exercises that can be used to relieve back pain that stems from a wide range of causes.

Treating Back Pain

At In Motion O.C., we offer physical therapy services for patients suffering from both acute and chronic back pain. Our therapists have developed the following routine for back pain:

  • Static back stretches
  • Pullovers
  • Wall crunches
  • Kneeling groin stretch
  • Supine stretch
  • Air bench

The exercises are all demonstrated by In Motion staff on our own YouTube video. By performing these exercises as prescribed and in this precise order, many patients find significant relief from back pain. Some individuals may find they need a customized approach to pain treatment that involves working one-on-one with a physical therapist until the pain is sufficiently relieved.
