One of the most important things that I try to tell everyone is not to wait when you get that first bout of back pain. It's EXTREMELY important that you get into Physical Therapy immediately to have your condition properly assessed by a Physical Therapist, as leaving it alone will only lead to an increase in symptoms, possibly then spreading to other parts of the body.
With Jennifer, although she did experience an unfortunate bout of back pain which then moved into her shoulder and neck due to overcompensation, I am happy to report that with Physical Therapy, we were able to help her rid her life of back pain symptoms completely!
