Back Pain Treatment San Fernando Valley

By October 7, 2011General

At Bright STAR Physical Therapy, the goals of back pain exercises and physical therapy are to decrease back pain, increase function, strengthen muscles, and provide education on a maintenance program to prevent further recurrences. We can help relieve your back pain ailments.

There are many different forms of physical therapy. Acutely, the therapist may focus on decreasing pain with passive physical therapy (modalities). These are considered passive therapies because they are done to the patient. Examples of modalities include:

  • Heat/ice packs
  • TENS units
  • Iontophoresis
  • Ultrasound

In addition to passive therapies, active physical therapy (exercise) is also necessary to rehabilitate the spine. Generally, a patient’s back exercise program should encompass a combination of the following:

  • Stretching for back pain exercise
  • Strengthening for back pain exercise
  • Low-impact aerobic conditioning
At Bright STAR Physical Therapy, our staff is constantly getting more training and more education on new or innovative treatment options in order to relieve your back pain and discomfort. We have several locations in the San Fernando Valley and also have an office located in the Santa Clarita Valley. Bright STAR physical therapists will be able to help you find relief from back pain.
