Back Pain Relief and Postural Retraining

Lauren treats back pain with both physical therapy and specific exercises to:

  • Decrease back pain
  • Increase function
  • Provide education on back maintenance to prevent recurrence

Following the initial one-hour assessment, Lauren determines if the patient is able to proceed with therapeutic exercise, or if an interim phase of pain management is required to alleviate pain through a combination of treatments:

  • Modalities
  • Manual therapy
  • Soft tissue techniques

Specific exercises are prescribed, along with a course of Postural Retraining to enable patients to rebalance posture, often an important step in decreasing pain. The final stage of treatment features lifestyle exercises to diminish pain and help prevent further injury.
