Back Therapy

Physical Therapy helps alleviate back pain and repair back injuries. There are many causes of back injuries and whether pain started from an trauma or a degenerative condition, it is possible to use the strategies applied in Physical Therapy to correct back pain.

One of the best treatments available is physical therapy and can often act as an effective alternative to even surgery. At Cross Bay Physical Therapy, our Howard Beach physical therapists have helped patients recover from back pain for over 30 years. Our focus is on patient satisfaction and our goal is to not only eliminate the back pain of our patients but also make their backs stronger to prevent future pain and injury.

Through the combination of exercise, stretching, and hands-on therapeutic modalities such as ice, heat, massage, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation, we guide the back's recovery process. Here are just a few simple exercises that are applied in our office to decrease back pain and loosen back stiffness:

  1. Core Strengthening Exercises - At Howard Beach Physical Therapy, we apply a range of abdominal exercises. By strengthening one's core, the abdmomen will provide greater support and balance to the back. This includes specific abdominal exercises likecrunches and leg lifts.
  2. A Single Knee To Chest Stretch - First, begin lying on a physical therapy table with both of your knees bent. Next place one leg flat on the ground and grab the other knee with your hand. Pull your knee toward your chest holding each stretch for 15-30 seconds and perform 2-3 repetitions.
  3. Lunges as a Back Stabilization Exercise - First, start in the kneeling position with your hands on your hips. Tighten the abdomen and buttocks while keeping your back in a neutral position. Raise your right foot and put it on the floor in front of you while still kneeling on the left knee. Lunge forward, moving the hips and hold a 3 count. Then, return to kneeling. Repeat this exercise 10 times and then repeat with the opposite side.

Physical Therapy is geared to help those suffering from chronic back pain and back injuries. Our goal is to both eliminate back pain while also making the back stronger to prevent further injury and help you regain full mobility of your back.
