Get Back to Your Life: Physical Therapy Solutions for Back Pain

Back pain is more common than you may think. In fact, about 80 percent of adults experience it at some point during their lives. Whether the pain comes from an injury or accident, or comes on gradually and turns into a chronic condition, back pain can make it hard to do the things you like to do. If pain is holding you back, it’s time to find some relief. Spine physical therapy can reduce pain and help you regain the strength and mobility you may have lost.

What is spine physical therapy?

Spine physical therapy is non-invasive treatment to reduce back and neck pain and increase mobility. It is also used for pre-surgical or post-surgical rehabilitation. A physical therapist will work with you to develop specific goals that may include:

  • Improved mobility
  • Knowledge of safe positions to avoid future injuries
  • Movement awareness
  • Increased functional strength (the ability to use a full range of motion without pain or restriction)
  • Improved coordination

If further treatment is required, the Memorial Hermann Spine Program can connect you to a team of affiliated specialists who are uniquely qualified to address spine conditions.
