Learn how to relieve your lower back pain with Herzing Minneapolis PTA teacher Tamara Felegy!
Lower back pain affects up to 80 percent of Americans and is one of the leading causes of missed work days in the United States. Chronic or acute back pain can make even the simplest movements, such as standing or walking, very difficult.
Fortunately, it is possible to remedy back pain through a combination of prevention and wellness exercises. Physical therapist assistants (PTAs) can help back pain sufferers regain their strength and learn how to manage their pain so that they can live productive and healthy lives.
“Lower back pain is the result of imbalances in one’s core, and physical therapy can help with assessing and improving on those core imbalances through various stretching techniques,” says Tamara Felegy, PTA program chair at Herzing University’s Minneapolis campus. “Many of these exercises can be completed at home, which makes it easier for patients to play an active role in their own recovery and healing.”
