Physical therapists have a sound reputation for helping reduce pain, improve mobility, and increase flexibility of joints, muscles, and tendons. They can help prevent an injury and get you moving again after an injury. They can help seniors improve their balance to prevent falls, and they can even help stroke victims in their recovery.
Because they know to manage all four of our body’s major systems – musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular, and integumentary (skin), they are experts at restoring and maximizing mobility. And this includes helping those who have back pain symptoms.
