Back pain and dysfunction is one of the most common complaints in our clinic and one of most cited reason for missing work, luckily we work with a bunch of therapists! A painful back can start from sitting too much or from poor posture but obviously also from heavy lifting and poor body mechanics . In fact you can even get a “bad back” from picking up a paperclip! For simple mild low back pain certain stretches can be helpful. For more serious back pain with nerve pain and or weakness in either or both of your legs, it’s imperative that you seek medical care.
Some of our videos below show home exercises and simple remedies. To start professional Physicial Therapy, you should however see your doctor and obtain a prescription!
