We here at Odom Health & Wellness believe in teaching our clients about their services, not just performing them. Continued education helps patients understand not only what services they are receiving but why.
Today we are covering lower back pain in relation to lower back pain. When lower back pain is a problem, a duration of 2 weeks or longer, a doctor may prescribe physical therapy (pt) services. Spine specialists often rely upon PT services more than regular doctors. The goal of physical therapy with lower back pain is to decrease back pain, increase function, and provide education on a maintenance program to prevent future incidents.
We do offer what is coined as “passive” PT therapy services, such as; Heat/ice packs, TENS units, Iontophoresis, and Ultrasound. Additionally, we provide a combination of stretching for back pain exercises, strengthening for back pain exercises, and low-impact aerobic conditioning. These, of course, are not all the PT services we can provide. Please call us to discover how we can help you with your lower back pain under a medically supervised regime.
