Back pain is by far the most common injury seen in physical therapy. Back pain can have many causes and come in many forms. Localized back pain is the most common sign but you might also feel shooting, burning, or tingling symptoms down one or both legs. Early detection and treatment of back pain can help reduce length of injury.
Therapy treatments might include directional preference exercises, lumbar strengthening, education on lifting techniques, pain reducing modalities, and/or traction.
