Back pain is a very common condition resulting from numerous triggers. Approximately eighty percent of people will experience lower back pain at some point in their lives and it is a leading cause of disability. Some of the most common causes of lower back pain include sprains and strains, herniated or bulging discs, degeneration of the joints that form the spine and fractures. Improper lifting techniques, poor posture, lack of regular exercise, arthritis, auto injuries and work-related injuries are all common causes of lower back pain. Management of lower back pain depends on a variety of factors including the cause and severity of the pain. Treatments include injections, medications, dietary changes, lifestyle changes, acupuncture, and physical therapy. Physical therapy is a proven treatment modality for lower back due to a variety of causes and can help patients mitigate pain and get back to a normal level of activity.
The neck is composed of seven vertebrae supported by ligaments, muscles and tendons. The neck is prone to injury and pain that typically results from inflammation of the supporting tissues. The inflammation can cause pain that travels, or radiates, into the arms and upper back. Other symptoms can include stiffness, limited motion, and tenderness. Common causes include poor posture, prolonged sitting, a herniated disc, arthritis, and infections. Treatments for neck pain depend on the cause and severity of symptoms. They can include physical therapy, medications, injections, or a combination of these therapies. Surgery may be warranted for severe pain resulting from certain conditions.
Sciatica is a common condition that results from irritation of the lengthy nerve that extends from the lower back down the leg. It can cause numbness, tingling and weakness in the legs or feet. No two patients are alike, and therapy aimed at treating sciatica must be customized and tailored toward the individual patient. Ongoing therapy along with exercise and stretching routines can provide symptomatic relief. Lifestyle changes such as implementing routine exercise, behavioral changes, nutrition adjustments, and smoking cessation can help as well.
Tennis Elbow: Lateral Epicondylitis
Tennis elbow results from inflammation and micro tearing of tendons that connect the forearm muscles to the elbow. The most common cause is overuse during racket sports. However, the condition can result from other sports and motions that mimic those of racket sports. The most common symptom is pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow. Physical therapy can offer symptomatic relief from the pain associated with tennis elbow and help heal the tendons and decrease inflammation.
The shoulder is a highly mobile and complex joint that is susceptible to instability and damage. Pain commonly results from overuse during sports involving overhead motion or in jobs that involve repetitive movements. Shoulder pain can also result from various medical conditions such as arthritis, heart disease or gallbladder disease. Rotator cuff tears or tendonitis, bursitis and dislocation are some additional causes of shoulder pain. If you have difficulty holding objects, limited range of motion or chronic shoulder pain, physical therapy can help restore your functioning and alleviate pain.
Leg pain can result from wear and tear and injuries to joints, bones, muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissues. Certain lower back conditions, such as herniated discs can be associated with leg pain. Other causes include clots, varicose veins, impaired circulation, sciatica, sprains and strains, bursitis, ACL tears, meniscus tears, diabetic neuropathy, and stress fractures. Physical therapy can help reduce the pain and impairment associated with these and other conditions that cause leg pain. Treatment is centered around the cause of the leg pain, the severity of symptoms and the goals of the patient with respect to improving function and activity.
