Physical therapy can be an effective way to manage and reduce back pain. A skilled physical therapist can design a customized treatment plan that may include exercises to strengthen the muscles that support your spine, improve your flexibility, and reduce stiffness. Additionally, physical therapists can educate you on proper posture and body mechanics to help prevent future episodes of back pain. They can also work with you to develop a home exercise program that you can continue independently to maintain your progress. By working with a physical therapist, you can learn how to manage your back pain and improve your overall function and quality of life. At BeneFIT Physical Therapy, we use the McKenzie Method.
The McKenzie Method is a Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment system that focuses on active patient involvement in the treatment of back pain. Our Certified McKenzie Therapist starts by conducting a thorough evaluation to determine the source of the pain and identify specific pain patterns. Once identified, we work with the patient to create a customized treatment plan that includes exercises and stretches to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and restore function. The McKenzie Method also emphasizes education on proper posture and body mechanics, enabling patients to take an active role in their recovery and preventing future episodes of pain. With our specialized training and expertise, we can provide exceptional care that addresses the root cause of your pain and helps you achieve your individual goals.
