Are you experiencing symptoms in your low back?

 

Your symptoms may include pain with sitting, walking, bending, lifting or simply movement in general. You may experience discomfort standing for prolonged periods of time or even stiffness upon waking in the morning.  Your symptoms could possibly include radiating pain or tingling into your hips and legs or feet. Your low back consists of 5 lumbar vertebrae, often referred to as L1-L5 that support most of your upper body weight. The sacrum lies just below the lumbar spine and forms the back wall of your pelvic girdle. This structure attaches on both sides forming your sacroiliac joint. Some common contributing factors to low back pain include muscle weakness throughout your core, poor postural habits, lifestyle, poor lifting techniques, or incorrect ergonomic set-up.

Whether you’ve had low back symptoms for years or due to a recent injury, your physical therapist can help determine the root of the issue to promote pain-free movement throughout your spine. We will start you on a specialized program including manual therapy techniques, exercise, and strategies to improve your symptoms and get you moving again.
