Suffering from back pain is a common condition, affecting the ability to perform common daily activities. The back can be affected by sciatica, muscle strains, herniated discs, arthritis, or injury. Back pain can come on suddenly or be a chronic condition. However back pain manifests itself for you, virtual physical therapy can provide relief.
An Agile physical therapist will begin treatment by going through a full evaluation that will test your range of motion, level and location of pain, past history, and any underlying conditions. After forming a diagnosis, your virtual PT will create a customized treatment plan to address your back pain, strength, flexibility, and mobility needs.
In order to see the most improvement from your virtual physical therapy care, it’s crucial to be active and engaged in the program. Stick to the exercises prescribed to help strengthen and relieve back pain. Your physical therapist may recommend stretching exercises, core muscle strengthening, and low-impact aerobic conditioning such as walking or biking.
Your virtual PT will tell you how to perform these exercises at home, and they will monitor your progress on each call. In addition to exercises, your PT may also recommend massages, application of ice or heat, or other treatments outside of at-home physical therapy.
