Does Age Affect Back Pain?

If you think that growing older automatically leads to back pain, here’s some great news; it doesn’t!  Many people suffer from pain, yet, they still believe their aches and pains are a natural part of aging.  They’re not.

Back pain is primarily caused by four main factors:

  • Spinal muscle weakness
  • Poor muscle or joint movement
  • Poor posture
  • Lack of spinal or pelvic muscle coordination

Treating the Cause of Your Back Pain

The goal of our SPINE program is to find the root cause of your pain and correct it, not just treat the symptoms.  By treating the root cause of the pain, you can achieve faster, long-lasting results.  We provide the most advanced and effective treatments to each of our patients in a caring, friendly environment.  Our highly trained and skilled physical therapists use proven hands-on therapy techniques to help people of all ages become free of pain and get back to the activities they enjoy.

If your back pain prevents you from standing for long periods, bending down to pick up objects, or getting up and down from the floor to play with your children or grandchildren it’s time to come to Complete Physical Rehabilitation and restore your quality of life.

Knowing the Right Expert to Help You

Physical Therapists are medical musculoskeletal specialists, meaning we are the experts when it comes to the movement of the body and how the muscles, joints and skeletal structure work with one another.

Effective physical therapy experts recognize that the best treatments are not modalities that depend solely on ultrasound, cold or heat therapy, but rather a skilled hands-on approach to examination and treatment.  Studies have proven that manual therapy and specific exercises produce better and faster results than traditional exercise-based therapy.

If you are suffering with back pain or know someone who is, call us today to discover how we can finally help you become pain-free and get back to the activities you enjoy.
