Physical therapy for the back commonly involves Lumbar joint degeneration (AKA back arthritis), Lumbar disc herniation, Lumbar radiculopathy (aka pinched nerve in the neck), Lumbar Stenosis. Statistic shows that 8 out of 10 Americans will suffer a major back pain episode in their life. Treatment for the back typically involves stretching the hips, back, and knees, posture correction, and back endurance exercises.
The most common mistake when trying to strengthen the back muscles in many physical therapy facilities in South Jersey involves improper exercises. Exercises like back extensions, sit ups, crunches on a ball, or side bends are all destructive for the back. They generate tons of back pressure (think 2 NFL lineman standing on your back) while you are bending your back.
