Physical Therapy ranks among the top treatment choices of their readers with back pain, according to a new Consumer Reports survey of more than 14,000 Americans who experience the condition. The report also recommends manual therapy (spinal manipulation) and exercise for low back pain. Physical therapists perform both of these types of treatments regularly. In fact, many of the studies supporting spinal manipulation and exercise for low back pain have been published by physical therapists.
More and more studies are showing that physical therapy is a great first choice treatment for low back pain. Here are just a few:
- Physical Therapy for Degenerative Disc Disease (common cause of low back pain)
- Physical Therapy Exercises For Low Back Pain
- Predicting patients that will benefit from spinal manipulation by a physical therapist
