Developing a Treatment Plan for Low Back Pain
Updated: Nov 6
Low back pain is a common complaint for people of all ages. Regardless if it is from sports, work, recreation or an injury, the pain often interferes with daily life or a good night’s sleep. The first step in developing a treatment plan is to take a detailed history to understand what you have been experiencing. After a person tells me their story, I then ask their spine to tell me its story. I do this by performing a series of orthopedic and neurologic tests to identify the source of the problem. Then we discuss what the history and exam revealed and how to address your concerns. This is where a specific treatment plan with appropriate goals will be developed for each individual; let’s face it, no two people are exactly alike.
