What can we do to help you?

Your doctor with perform a thorough history and exam. Sometimes, your doctor may order x-rays or a MRI of the lumbar spine. Diagnostic tests are not always necessary to confirm the cause of your back pain at the initial visit. Physical therapy and an appropriate home-based exercise program is an important part of back pain treatment.

A physical therapist may offer treatments such as muscle release techniques, ultrasound, heat or electrical stimulation to the back muscles and soft tissues to reduce the pain. As the pain improves, the therapist will teach you specific exercises to stabilize the back and core muscles, and improve your posture.

  • Bird dog
  • Double Leg Bridging
  • Single leg bridging
  • Clams

The above exercises can help prevent the back pain from happening again in the future. Your doctor may also prescribe pain medications for temporary use if over the counter medications are not helping.
