Tired of not having a clear direction when your low back aches? In the following 2 parts, we discuss the types of back pain and SIMPLE strategies to improve your life. It is important to note, if these strategies are helpful, your symptoms are likely “mechanical” meaning physical movement can reduce your pain. If you are looking for an alternative to scheduling an apt with your doctor, waiting for an x-ray, and given medication or an injection, this is for you. If you do not see 100% return to normal, see your physical therapist today for a specific guided approach to get you the results you want.
