Scott: Enjoying a pain-free ski trip despite his old back injury
The Pain: Scott, age 42, had suffered an injury five years ago shovelling snow. This caused him lower back pain a few times a year. His pain would flare up and he wouldn’t be able to bend over, lift objects, or stand and walk without pain.
Scott’s pain flare-ups were disrupting his life. They started when he was doing things around his house or spending time with his family.
The Program: Scott’s personal physical therapist recommended treatment twice a week for up to 6 weeks. He was taught how to engage key core trunk muscles and shown good body mechanics for lifting, carrying, and yard work. Scott also received manual therapy addressing lumbar spine joint mobility restrictions. He saw improvements in just 2 weeks.
The Result: After 4 sessions over 2 weeks, Scott reported minimal pain overall.
Scott went on his ski trip pain free, and was able to get back to his daily routine. He had suffered from lower back pain for five years, and it was gone in no time with physical therapy.
