Tip of the Day

If you have back pain or are recovering from surgery, physical therapy can help strengthen the muscles in your back to help relieve back pain or regain motion. A physical therapist will custom-tailor exercises to your particular condition.

Recent research shows that exercises designed to strengthen back muscles may be useful even if you don’t have back pain yet. In a recent study of 50 women between the ages of 58 and 75, those who performed back-strengthening exercises suffered fewer painful fractures of the vertebrae than women who didn’t do the exercises.
