What is Spine Rehab?

We know it is easier said than done, but those who are suffering from lower back pain are encouraged to exercise on a regular basis and work towards regaining strength and muscle. That being said, people are oftentimes at a loss for how to do just that. From aquatics therapy to a personalized physical therapy plan, your options are plentiful here in Grand Prairie. When first starting out, it is important to keep in mind that getting better is only the beginning. In fact, additional episodes of back pain are fairly common as you work towards recovery. The best way for patients to successfully rehabilitate a spinal cord or lower back injury is to engage in appropriate back exercises that are monitored by a licensed professional.

There are several different structures in the back that can contribute to low back pain, including the following:

  • Intervertebral Discs – When a disc fails, it can result in the most excruciating and debilitating kinds of pain. Unfortunately, a slipped or injured disc cannot repair itself, which is one of the most common reasons for recurrent back pain.
  • Spinal Muscles, Ligaments, and Tendons – These are the soft tissues that can be found around the spine. They are also a crucial element in maintaining proper spinal balance and strength.
  • Spinal Nerves – When a nerve becomes pinched, cut, or irritated in another manner, the muscles that are controlled by that nerve can no longer operate as they need to. This can lead to a lot of serious issues and wreak havoc on an individual’s ability to move and lead a comfortable life.

These are just a few of the most common types of back injuries that can be addressed through aquatics therapy and spine rehabilitation. All of the therapists here at Classic Rehab are qualified and expertly trained in this field, which means you will receive the highest level of service and assistance during the rehabilitation process.
