What Is The Best Approach For Back Pain?

 Medical Evidence Really Points To Physical Therapy 

It is estimated that 90% of the population has at least one episode of low back pain...many have multiple episodes or suffer from chronic low back pain. There is no shortage of mounting evidence that really points to physical therapy being the best choice for helping to alleviate low back pain and in many cases, even preventing unnecessary surgery. The key is having "the right" physical therapy that involves selected manual treatment in combination with exercise. We are confident that at Blue Hills Sports & Spine Rehabilitation we are providing "the right" care for people suffering from low back pain. Recently the APTA did a podcast discussing the evidence behind proper treatment. If you have a few minutes, click on the photo to the right to was well done. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact one of our offices.

Stretching It Out...
A Few Minutes of Post Exercise Stretching Goes A Long Way...

With the fall season in full swing, there will be many going for foliage hikes or playing pick-up games of soccer or touch football...and many of these people will not have done these activities for a long time. One of the side effects of doing a new activity (or returning to a strenuous activity after not doing it for years) is muscle tightness and soreness. We have covered delayed onset muscle soreness in prior newsletters, so this should be a refresher for all who have read those articles. In general, a little stretching goes a long way to help prevent this soreness and should it set help you decrease it. To see a nice and simple standing stretching program to try after that fall hike, or touch football game, click go out and have some fun!
