Can Physical Therapy help with chronic mid and low back pain?
Updated: Apr 13, 2022
I have chronic mid and low back pain. I know that my posture isn't great and my core feels weak. I work from a desk for most of the day. I see a chiropractor regularly and that helps me stay aligned, but is there more I can do? Do you think PT would benefit me?
Physical therapy can definitely be beneficial! At your appointment, the PT will assess your posture and strength, as well as discuss your current desk set-up. From the assessment, the PT can work with you to create an appropriate exercise program and teach you correct postural strategies to be aware of throughout your day.
