Poor posture is one of the most common causes of neck pain and back pain. Fixing your posture often relieves pain after a few days and keeping good posture prevents this pain from returning. Unfortunately, muscle weakness prevents a person from consistently applying proper posture and an injury still can disable a person for a period of time, which is why we recommend physical therapy to speed up the healing process.
Poor posture, weak muscles, and a traumatic accident are causes of many of the back injuries that we see at Cross Bay Physical Therapy. With a weak back and poor posture, an accident that damages muscle tissue in the back is more than likely. The back has to overcompensate for weak muscles if a person does not regularly exercise and this can lead to a strain.
There can be many causes of back pain and it is the job of our physical therapists to find the causes and the correct treatment to help you relieve back pain and injury.
