Professional Therapy Associates Study Supports Findings: Physical Therapy Beneficial in Treating Office Workers with Lower Back Pain
Date:3/25/2013

KALISPELL, Mont., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Over 31 million Americans experience lower back pain at any given time (1).  Montana physical therapy clinic, Professional Therapy Associates (PTA), specializes in diagnosing and treating lower back pain.  Physical therapists at the clinic recently treated a patient suffering from lower back pain and effectively eliminated his discomfort.

Problem:  Michael, a 63-year-old male business executive, was suffering from pain in the lower back.  Michael has worked a desk job for most of his adult life.

●   Back pain is a common complaint among office workers who spend multiple hours each week sitting at a desk.  Many people do not practice proper posture in the office, which can lead to back pain and repetitive stress injuries (2).

Michael's posture and excess weight have taken a serious toll on his spine, resulting in lower back pain.  The pain intensity steadily increased to the point where he needed to adjust his body every thirty minutes or the pain would become too difficult to bear.  He had had physical therapy with PTA a year ago and had experienced tremendous relief, but had stopped doing his home exercises.  The pain returned, and he started feeling numbness in his left extremities and occasionally on the right.

Diagnosis:  An examination by PTA therapists revealed that Michael suffered from severe lower back pain and nerve root strain down his left leg.  His lower back pain increased with forward motion and resulted in pain while sitting, twisting and lifting.  Michael could not sit, stand or walk for 30 minutes without having to switch activities due to pain.
