Most often, low back pain is a product of one of the following scenarios: 1) improper lifting technique, which may tear muscle tissue or even herniate (displace) the intervertebral disk, 2) overuse or hypermobility, referring to intense labor or repetitive movement that puts increased wear on spinal disks and joints, or 3) low activity or hypomobility, which can lead to weight gain, as well as reducing the flow of nutrients to muscles and disks in the back.

Fortunately, physical therapy, rest, healthy dieting, and regular exercise can often have a long-term positive impact on low back pain levels. Those with acute or chronic back pain may be tempted to resist physical activity, but an approved regimen of physical therapy by a licensed physical therapist depends on regular implementation to be effective. Patients who opt out of the physical rehabilitation process may actually lose mobility as a result.

Core strengthening exercises play a fundamental role in most physical rehabilitation plans. The torso and spinal column are home to many different tendons, muscles, and ligaments that help support the weight of the body and provide stability during routine movement. All of these tissues work in tandem with the spinal column to participate in all load-bearing activities—running, walking, standing, and sitting among them. If core strengthening exercises are omitted from a patient’s physical rehabilitation regimen, the spinal column bears more weight than it otherwise would and low back pain is more likely to recur.

Patients with chronic back pain are advised to seek thorough medical consultation, given that their pain may be resulting from structural problems, deformities, or other abnormalities within the spinal column. Imaging techniques such as the X-ray, CT scan, and magnetic resonance imaging can reveal the integrity of the spinal column as well as allow physicians to design a more effective physical therapy regimen.
