Is the source of your low back pain a mystery? You’re not alone: Nine out of 10 patients don't know the primary cause of their back pain. The problem is that most people seek treatment after they’ve begun exhibiting symptoms of back pain. While this may seem logical on the surface, we’re here to tell you that there’s a better way.
The key is to go to a physical therapist before you begin to see the signs and symptoms of back pain. I’m sure that right about now you’re asking, “Why would I do that?” One, because physical therapists are trained to recognize the physical dysfunctions that may one day lead to back pain. And two, because eight out of 10 Americans suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives, so the chances are good that you could become a statistic one day.
You might be thinking to yourself, “now I know I should see a physical therapist before I am in pain, but what if I am in pain RIGHT NOW?” You are in luck! Our team at Elite Spine & Extremity Physical Therapy consists of all Doctorate trained Physical Therapists who are well versed in assessing your low back and/or sciatic pain, determining the root cause of your problem, and helping you determine the best route of care for you.
