Do you feel limited by low back pain or stiffness? Are you looking to get out and play golf, surf, lift weights, run, fish, play soccer, or hangout with the grandkids? Then this is the post for you!
Low back pain is one of the most common problems faced in the modern world today. 31 million people are experiencing LBP at any given time. So if you suffer from low back pain, you’re not alone. There can be many causes for low back pain, including sitting at a desk, injuring yourself while working out, or not working out enough.
Sometimes low back pain can go away with some heat and some light exercise (like walking), but these may be temporary solutions and occasionally you might need extra help. Instead of loading your body up with medications to mask the pain, find a solution. This is where we come in. We want to help you get back out to do the things you love. Summer is almost here and we don’t want back pain to slow you down. We can help you with some techniques to alleviate your back pain like dry needling, soft tissue work, and mobilizations. We cater these tools, along with exercises, specifically to you and your needs, your sports, and your lifestyle. Whether you’re looking to alleviate your back pain for crossfit, soccer, swimming, running, or just plain living life, we’re here to help.
Your personalized regimen will begin with some light stretching (hamstring, press-ups) and then go into more dynamic exercises like the dipping bird or side plank. Eventually we’ll begin to challenge you with squats and other more functional exercises, adding load and intensity to start to build strength, resilience, and stamina in your muscles. We want you to leave stronger, healthier, and with much less pain than when you started.
Low back pain is an uphill battle and alleviating it can be a difficult journey filled with hills and valleys. If you stay the course and keep moving forward on the road to recovery, you can alleviate the pain and help prevent future problems. So what are you waiting for? Don’t let back pain keep you on the couch this summer, start your journey to recovering now so you can get up, get out, and get moving.
