So you may have been told that you have arthritis in your low back by your physician.
You may have been told “You will just have to live with this” without any guidance about how to live with this in the future.
HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS! HERE ARE 4 TIPS TO START REGAINING YOUR LIFESTYLE!
1.) Just because you have been told that you have arthritis does not mean that you have to suffer with pain the rest of your life……THAT’S RIGHT! There are a TON of things that you can do to avoid taking medications, getting injections, and having surgery.
2.) If your spine remains strong, flexible, and you exercise daily you can avoid the discomfort and immobility of spinal arthritis.
3.) YOUR SYMPTOMS do NOT correlate with your X-ray and MRI. Your symptoms are HIGHLY related to your CORE strength, flexibility, weight, activity, and lifestyle. These all can be addressed and corrected by a physical therapist and you don’t need a referral to see a physical therapist.
4.) If you do nothing about your spinal arthritis your symptoms will get worse.

Thanks for the tips for dealing with arthritis. I am struggling with lower back pain, and I want to know how to deal with it. I didn’t realize that I could avoid the discomfort by exercising daily. It makes sense that being active could help reduce the paint though. I will definitely give it a try!
Someone with lower back pain has a lot of conservative options to help them but the source of the low back pain has to be established. One thing to remember is that sometimes imaging for low back pain often does not tell the story of the source of your low back pain. What helps is a detailed orthopedic and biomechanical assessment that is done at all of our offices. Also all exercises are NOT the same and a “general” set of exercises should not be given to someone with low back pain because there are many sources of low back pain and some exercises can definitely make you worse.
