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.
As we get older, it is possible to “throw out your back” with a quick, sudden movement. If this has recently happened to you, first understand that this is normal. Through physical therapy, it is not only possible to relieve this pain but also strengthen the back to decrease the chances that this will happen again.
