Physical Therapy for Low Back Pain and Lumbar Stabilization
Regain mobility and reduce pain
Low back pain is extremely common – studies have suggested that about 80% of the population in western countries has experienced low back pain at some point. Often, low back pain resolves itself in a few weeks – but 60 – 80% of the time, patients will have low back pain again within one year. Low back pain usually occurs because the muscle groups which stabilize the spine (lumbar paraspinalis, lumbar multifidi, and transverse abdominus) aren’t functioning properly – sometimes, this is a result of trauma or injury. Physical Therapy for low back pain can include exercises, mobilization, traction, electric stimulation, ultrasound, heat or cold therapy, massage, and education on body mechanics. Stabilizing and strengthening the lumbar spine is key to maintaining a healthy spine.
