Physical Therapy for Back Pain

Of all the areas of the body, the back is one of the most commonly subjected to injuries and pain. The reason for this is simple: the back is an integral part of everything a person does every day. And often that pain doesn’t go away for a couple of reasons. Sufferers either try to live with it using pain relievers or they seek care that focuses on the symptoms instead of the cause.

At State-of-the-Art Physical Therapy in Tustin, CA, we know there is a better approach to back pain that helps patients get the relief they deserve. Learn more about how below.

Movement Is Key

Pain tends to make you want to be still – to park yourself on your couch or in bed. This is understandable, and rest is an important part of healing. However, too much rest can make your pain worse.

Movement helps fight stiffness, improves blood flow, and helps your back get the healing nutrients it needs. However, the wrong movements can worsen your condition and increase your pain. Working with a physical therapist helps ensure that you are doing the best-targeted movements to address the underlying issue.

Combination of Techniques

Physical therapy also takes into account that comprehensive and lasting healing often requires a combination of techniques. In addition to therapeutic exercises, some techniques utilized include those listed below.

  • Laser therapy: Laser therapy utilizes low levels of laser energy to penetrate the deep layers of soft tissue. It helps reduce pain and inflammation while stimulating tissue and cellular regeneration.
  • Ultrasound therapy: Ultrasound therapy sends vibrations into the soft tissues, which helps break up tension and scar tissue, release muscle spasms, and improve the flow of blood to the injured area.
  • Electrical stimulation therapy: Electrical stimulation therapy sends small electric currents into the soft tissues, which causes the muscles to contract and then relax. This process helps release muscle spasms, reduce inflammation and pain, and improve blood flow to the target site.
  • Kinesiotaping: Kinesio tape is a flexible tape that is placed strategically on the body at points that help improve circulation, support weakened areas, improve circulation, and more.

These are just a few examples of methods that might be used in conjunction with physical therapy exercises. However, each treatment plan differs according to the patient’s needs.
