Back Pain

Your lumbar spine is stressed with bending, stooping, sitting, and lifting. Frequent performance of these activities can increase your pain.  However, back pain can occur at anytime, even while sleeping. 

Physical therapy can help you move better and may relieve pain. It also helps improve or restore your physical function and your fitness level.

The physical therapists at AIM Physical Therapy have extensive knowledge and experience in the treatment of back pain. We will help you develop a custom program tailored for your needs.

  • Range of motion
  • Manual stretching
  • Deep tissue mobilization
  • Trigger point release
  • Myofacial release

Flexibility

Flexibility is critical to spine health. Our protocols consist of a flexibility component to increase both trunk and lower extremity range of motion.  

AIM Physical Therapy will help you develop a custom program tailored for your needs.

Strengthening

 Trunk and lower extremity stability through core strengthening helps in the prevention and treatment of back pain. This is especially true for patients performing lifting tasks.

In addition, patients who have sedentary jobs with significant periods of sitting are at risk for a loss of trunk strength.
