Back Pain: Physical Therapy

Ways to properly use joints, heat and cold therapies, range of motion and flexibility exercises, and assistive devices are some of the physical and occupational therapies to treat back pain.

Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says the physical therapy is about showing the patients how to lift things and how to handle things in a proper manner, and the exercises are to allow you to have some mobility back, because you want to regain it after having an injury.
