A leading cause of fear and negativity associated with back pain is the premature diagnostic imaging that is performed before conservative treatment for at least four weeks in order to determine the severity of the injury. Low back pain is very often misdiagnosed due to surrounding area muscular dysfunctions and/or weakness. Once the root of the pain is discovered just like with many other body parts, it is important to assess/treat joint mobility, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
The focus, as with other body parts, tends to lean on a pattern of mobility, stability, controlled mobility, and skill. Patients that understand a proper stretching routine coupled with specific muscular strengthening exercises to help carry over manual interventions performed in the clinic are key to their success.
