Physical Therapy for Back Pain

If back pain persists, consider physical therapy. Manual therapy to make you feel better is phase one. Next, the physical therapist teaches you exercise routines for back self-care. The goal is to prevent recurrences. Use strengthening exercises that help you engage the core muscles. Activity beats bed rest. Being sedentary is the wrong response to any kind of back pain issue.
