Back conditions can be debilitating and often require physical therapy in order to improve. Physical therapy is a common treatment for back pain, which can range from mild to severe and can include injuries, degenerative conditions, or chronic pain.

Physical therapy helps to reduce pain and discomfort, increase mobility, improve posture, maintain strength and flexibility, and prevent future injury. It is important to understand the different types of back conditions that require physical therapy, so you can determine the best course of treatment for your specific condition.

What You Need to Know About Physical Therapy & Back Pain

Physical therapy is a great way to treat back pain. A physical therapist can assess the range of motion of your spine and posture and then create an individualized plan to help reduce pain and strengthen your back muscles. The physical therapist may use massage, ultrasound, heat, cold, exercise, and other treatments to manage your condition. They may also provide advice on ergonomics, stretching, and strengthening exercises that you can do at home. With their help, you can learn how to move in ways that will be less likely to cause further back pain or injury. If done properly, physical therapy can significantly improve your range of motion and reduce your spinal discomfort.

Common Back Conditions

There are several types of back conditions that can be treated with physical therapy.

Lower Back Pain

Low back pain is the most common type of back pain and can be caused by a number of different conditions. These include herniated discs, sciatica, sprains, strains, and muscle imbalances. Physical therapy can help to reduce pain and improve mobility by stretching, strengthening, and improving posture.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is another common back condition that can be treated with physical therapy. It occurs when the spinal canal narrows and compresses the nerves, causing pain and weakness in the back, hips, and legs. Physical therapy can help to reduce pain and improve mobility by stretching and strengthening the muscles.


Sciatica is a condition caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve, which can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the legs and feet. Physical therapy can help to reduce pain and improve mobility by stretching and strengthening the muscles that support the spine.

Back Injuries

A back injury can also be treated with physical therapy. A back injury can range from a mild strain to a more serious injury such as a fracture or disc herniation. Physical therapy can help to reduce pain, improve mobility, and restore function.

How We Treat Back Conditions

A physical therapist can provide relief from back pain. By working with one of our physical therapists, we can create a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs. Treatments may include exercises to stretch and strengthen the spinal muscles, as well as manual therapies such as soft tissue mobilization, joint manipulation, and dry needling. Our physical therapists may also use modalities such as ultrasound, and electrical stimulation to reduce pain and inflammation.

We can also suggest lifestyle modifications that can help prevent future episodes of back pain. In addition, your physical therapist will be able to check for any signs of injury or disease that could be causing your back pain.
