Physical Therapy in Astoria, NY

Lower back problems are one of the most common reasons for visits to the doctor’s office and the most common cause of disability among adults under the age of forty-five. In most situations, low back pain is the result of simple training and is a self-limiting condition, that with treatment, will resolve in usually four to six weeks. Even if you don’t think of back pain as a disability, it may lead to serious issues, and effort should be made to seek appropriate care based on diagnosis.

Depending on your condition, you may need a healthcare professional to help you develop an appropriate list of activities to engage in as well as to avoid. He or she will also help to develop and instruct you on an exercise program. Back pain can be serious and should always be carefully evaluated by a healthcare professional to reach an accurate diagnosis and to determine if additional care is needed. Care should be taken to inform the patient in a positive manner to avoid unnecessary surgery as well as inappropriate or unnecessary treatment.

The muscles in your abs and back play a demanding role in supporting the lower lumbar spine. These muscles don’t get the treatment they should in most people’s daily routine. There are many light and simple exercises that can be completed in twenty minutes as part of a normal day routine.
