Core muscle strengthening is vital to back pain treatment in Grand Rapids, MI

There is one thing that our Grand Rapids, Michigan Advent Physical Therapy team knows about back pain treatment, and that’s the importance of core muscle strengthening. We also know that you may not understand why our team focuses so much on structures that aren’t in your back during your therapy.

One reason that we’ll focus on your core muscles is because of their importance in stabilizing your upper body as you move. Your core muscles include specific muscle groups in your lower back, buttocks, sides and stomach. Our team knows that these muscle groups include muscles such as the abdominals, obliques, erector spinae and more. Weakness in these muscles can be a key reason that you have back pain in the first place. Our team is aware that core muscle weakness can cause back issues like poor posture, and such issues can lead to pain in your back.

To help you deal with the source of back pain, our team will design a treatment plan for you that focuses on building the strength of your core muscles. Our plans may also include therapies such as:

  • Aerobic exercises
  • Manual therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Thermotherapy

Combining these and other therapies into one back pain treatment plan may be very helpful for you. Our Grand Rapids, Michigan team even makes it easy for you to begin your treatment for back pain. All you have to do is take one easy step.
