How Physical Therapists Relieve Back Pain
Once you’ve developed symptoms of back pain, you may need to visit a physical therapist. A physical therapist will then work together with the patient to help restore their original mobility and help heal their body as a whole. Moreover, the therapist can also recommend a series of methods and techniques to help the individual minimize their pain and symptoms in the future.
Physical therapy includes both passive and active treatment options. Passive treatments are helpful for helping people relax while also helping the body heal. These are referred to as passive treatments because the patient does not need to actively participate in them to experience the benefits. Most physical therapy treatment plans may begin with passive treatment while the body begins to heal, however, the goal is to ultimately get the patient to participate in active treatments. Therapeutic exercises can help strengthen the body in order to help prevent future episodes of back pain.
Physical therapists can perform a variety of both passive and active therapeutic treatments and methods to help relieve a patient’s symptoms of back pain. A therapist can also help speed up the patient’s rehabilitation process naturally. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
