When it comes to the treatment of neck and back pain, conventional physical therapy programs can prove very ineffective for many spinal pain patients. The focus on core strengthening is not the most effective way to treat most spines that are suffering from acute or chronic pain. Before embarking on core strengthening, you have the get the pain better. And getting the pain better requires decompressing the sources of pain in the spine, i.e. the discs, joints, and nerves. After the pain is better, then core strengthening should be done in order to improve the tolerance to physical demands and to raise the threshold for injury and pain in the future. In fact, done effectively it has been proven that a stronger spine will have fewer future episodes of pain, and the average pain levels will be progressively reduced. I explain more in my video on core strengthening. While core strengthening can protect your spine from insult, it does not address the problem. The problem and cause of most difficult spinal pain is compression of the spine. This requires direct redress in the way of spinal decompression treatment. That is why conventional physical therapy fails so many patients with neck and back pain. Physical therapy in Decatur and Atlanta.
