Back Stability Program

Back pain is one of the most common problems affecting the American population, especially our work force. It is the second leading cause of employee absenteeism, ranking just behind the common cold. It has been reported that sometime in our life, 80% of us will suffer from this problem.

In most cases, the vast majority of back problems are classified as “self-imposed” – the result of long-term bad habit patterns that induce restricted flexibility and weakness in the musculature culminating eventually in an acute attack of back pain. Fortunately, these attacks can usually be prevented or relieved by working through exercise to restore the strength and flexibility of the abdominal and pelvic musculature. The type of exercise program is called “Back Stabilization” and this program is available at Close Physical Therapy.

The program consists of a complete back evaluation by one of our experienced and skilled physical therapists who will then design a custom back stabilization program to fit your needs. The program will consist of education and exercises which will help:

  • Restore and/or increase the range of motion (flexibility) of a patient’s back, hips, and lower extremities.
  • Educate the patient regarding proper body mechanics and body posture to reduce the potential for low back injury or re-injury.
  • Restore muscular tone, control, and strength to those muscles of the stomach, back, hips, and thighs.

Don’t just ignore your back pain – do something proactive about it. Regardless of this cause, if you are willing to work at it, this program really works – our patients’ success rate is outstanding!
