Lower Back Pain
Pain in lower back have become very common among people as people have become overweight and sedentary. Increase use of computer and mobile devices, increase sitting and reduced physical activity contribute to pain and dysfunction of lower back.

Why Treatment Of Lower Back Pain At IPRC Is Better Than Conventional Physical Therapy?
Mostly, conventional low back pain treatment focuses on the site of pain without treating the exact cause of your pain and dysfunction. Treating the cause of LBP will lead to effective and successful treatment.
To get to the exact cause of lower back pain, two factors must be identified:
Because spine is involved in all movements of human body, dysfunction of motor patterns anywhere in the kinetic chain can lead to LBP.
Multiple structures of body can cause referred pain in your lower back. Pain can also arise due to entrapment or compression of nerves by other structures.
In most cases, specific movements may cause irritation of nerves, muscle or joint. Since different structures may cause referred pain in your lower back region, we must identify the exact cause and primary origin of failure of load transfer.
Conventional physical therapy does not focus on core strengthening exercises, ignoring multiple factors that play an important role during dynamic movement.
At IPRC, we analyze and assess your body while in motion so that faulty motor patterns can be identified. We also identify compensation habits that can cause low back pain.
