Lake Mills Physical Therapy can help with your low back pain

“Oh, my back is hurting!” At some point it is likely that you will encounter low back pain (LBP); affecting nearly eight out of 10 people at some point in their life. LBP can become quite limiting to a persons daily living by limiting their ability to work, play sports, yardwork, cook, clean and the list can go on.
Causes of LBP can range from simple muscle strains/sprains, intervertebral disc disorder, arthritis or aging, and even posture changes. Most LBP is fixable with the correct treatment, early intervention, and should only last anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple of months depending on what the injury is.
Physical therapy is highly effective in treating LBP. With a skilled evaluation, individualized strengthening program, and a lot of education on posture and mechanics, we are able to correct most LBP. Research has shown that cases requiring surgery, such as discectomy and fusions, that in the long term, physical therapy is just as effective without the dangers that accompany surgery. Physical therapy also is effective in pain control without the use of addictive opioid medications.
People suffering from LBP can easily access physical therapy with Iowa being a direct access state, meaning you don’t require a physician referral to come to therapy. As a physical therapist, I am highly skilled in medical screening to determine that you are an appropriate candidate for physical therapy. Medicare always requires a physician referral, but for other insurances, we will verify to confirm if a referral is needed.
At Lake Mills Physical Therapy we strive to provide the most cost-effective, evidenced based rehabilitation focused on treating the whole individual and providing support for a long-term solution to your injury.
You can set up your appointment at 641-592-3500. We also offer free injury screenings to those that don’t know if they need a doctor visit or want to develop a plan of who to see.
“I was a little skeptical, but after the first appointment, my hips and back already felt better. Thank you for your kindness, professionalism, flexibility in scheduling and always making me feel comfortable. Not only did you fix the problem, but you educated me to avoid the same injury. And, I never knew PT could be fun. I’m forever grateful and will highly recommend you to everyone,” commented Mandee Smith.
