Q.     My back hurts and I’ve heard that it would hurt less if I strengthened the muscles in my abdominals… do you help with strengthening?

A. Back pain can be caused by many things. It is important to have a professional examine you to determine why you are having pain. Exercise is an integral part of our treatment program. However, it is important to choose the proper exercise at the proper time to reduce the risk of further injury. Your therapist will identify weak and tight muscles and will prescribe a customized stretching and strengthening program designed to help you achieve maximal improvement in the shortest amount of time.
