Lumbar (Lower Back) Pain

Our lower backs are easily injured through weakness in the back muscles, prolonged sitting, and strenuous exercise. A variety of ailments can trigger pain, from muscle strain to stenosis, and treatments will be dependant on the type of injury.

Timberlane Physical Therapy Method:

We are skilled in evaluation and research, which allows us to treat the whole picture, not just the specific pain. This allows us to identify the root of your lower back pain, whether that is stiffness in the upper back, misaligned hips, or a lumbar injury.

You will work with a therapist one-on-one during your session and learn exercises and skills to manage your pain. This allows you to maintain your healing process between visits and to continue management after your time at Timberlane PT.
