Most Americans will experience back pain. The good news is that most cases of low back pain are not serious and will respond well to conservative treatments such as treatment by a physical therapist.

Physical therapists are movement experts. They improve quality of life through hands-on care, patient education, and prescribed movement. You can contact a physical therapist directly for an evaluation. To find a physical therapist in your area, visit Find a PT.
