At Penasquitos Pointe Medical Group we believe in treating patients as individuals, which is why each patient goes through a functional movement assessment. This assessment allows our exercise therapist to determine the specific problem areas that are causing pain. This allows us to design a rehabilitative exercise program that meets each individuals specific musculoskelatal needs.
One of the reasons our patients are given a functional movement assessment is to determine how the joints above and below the injured area are moving. Many people suffering from chronic back pain may have a problem in the hip joint that is actually causing the problem, this is why only treating the back may not resolve the pain.
Many people suffering from chronic back pain can experience relief by adapting a core strengthening exercise program. The difference with core strengthening is that it strengthens the deep abdominal muscles creating a strong unit to protect the back from being injured during exercise and activities of daily living.
Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it. ~Plato
