Hackensack, New Jersey (PRWEB) April 17, 2012
Low back pain is a common complaint among the American population. In fact, a recent article released by HealthNewsDigest.com asserts that as much as two-thirds of the population suffers from this condition. Surprisingly, 37 percent of these individuals do not seek the help of professionals in an attempt to alleviate this pain. Phillip Kim, D.C., owner of Premier Health NJ, finds this number both surprising and disappointing. As a result, he is encouraging individuals who experience low back pain to reach out to physical therapists.
According to the aforementioned article, “More than one-third of adults say low back pain has affected their ability to engage in tasks of daily living (39 percent), exercise (38 percent), and sleep (37 percent).” Minor, sporadic pain may be accepted by people who live busy, stressful lives; however, pain intense enough to interfere with daily activities should be addressed.
Turning to physical therapists for pain relief is effective because it gets to the root of the problem: “By determining the cause of a patient’s low back pain, physical therapists get to the source of the problem and develop a treatment plan, which may include a combination of exercises to strengthen the back, manual therapy to improve the mobility of joints and soft tissues, and education about how to take better care of the back to relieve pain in the long term.”
Dr. Kim believes that physical therapy is a wonderful solution because of its ability to achieve long-term results. By addressing the cause of the pain, and not just the pain itself, physical therapists are able to create treatment plans that result in lasting pain relief.
“My goal is to alleviate the pain of each and every patient,” commented Dr. Kim. “I know that physical therapy works for low back pain and I wish that every person in America knew that relief was just a doctor’s appointment away. With physical therapy, people can get rid of their back pain and get back to living their lives.”
Premier Health NJ, the multi-specialty rehabilitation center that Dr. Kim founded, offers the physical therapy treatment that patients with back pain need to feel healthy again. Additionally, the office provides chiropractic and acupuncture treatment techniques.
