Extreme back pain making movements difficult

Overview

Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to a physiotherapist in Mulund. The pain can range from a muscle aching to a burning, shooting, or stabbing sensation. The pain might also radiate down the leg or worsen with twisting, bending, lifting, standing, or walking.

Detailed Description

We at Physiofit Guru ensured that Mrs. Sangeeta gets the best treatment for her back pain and recovers rapidly. So, our physiotherapist Dr. Ajay Yadav provided her the following treatment:

  • Strengthening exercises for back flexors and extensors
  • Core strengthening
  • Manipulation and mobilisation
  • Gait training exercises

Post Treatment Guidelines

After the treatment, we suggested that Mrs. Sangeeta do home exercises 4 times a day.

Dr. Ajay Yadav taught the patient to perform exercises that would increase her flexibility, strengthen her back and abdominal muscles, and improve her posture. Regular use of these techniques would help keep Mrs. Sangeeta’s pain from returning.

At Physiofit Guru, we ensure educating our patients about how to modify their movements during an episode of back pain. With our guidelines, most of our patients can avoid flaring pain symptoms while continuing to be active.
