I have done physical therapy before and think the care and effort provided by Sam and Jennifer has been excellent. I especially like having it done at my gym so I can do the routines in the pool and on the equipment for better long term follow through.
As mentioned previously, nearly everyone has back pain sometime. Men and women are equally affected. It occurs most often between ages thirty (30) and fifty (50), due in part to the aging process but also as a result of sedentary life styles with too little (sometimes punctuated by too much) exercise. The risk of experiencing back pain from disc disease or spinal degeneration increases with age.
Back pain unrelated to injury or other known cause is unusual in pre-teen children. However, a backpack overloaded with school books and supplies can quickly strain the back and cause muscle fatigue (for more info, see our news section on Back to School).
