Lower Back Pain

A wide range of treatment is available for back pain, depending on what is causing the pain and how long it lasts. Most people find that their back pain improves within a few weeks. The goal of physical therapy is to decrease back pain, increase function and teach the patient a maintenance program to prevent future back problems.

The CNS way to avoid back surgery and get off painkillers:

  • Exercise: Our Pilate machine as well as our lessons on therapeutic exercise can enhance your physical strength, flexibility of muscles and spine, and increase your coordination as well as decrease your stress levels.

  • Food: Dr. Kim recommends ingesting nutritional supplements like fish oil, vitamins and glucosamine.

  • Change your lifestyle: Individuals that smoke, are obese, engage in heavy lifting, sports and operate a motor vehicle are more susceptible to lower back pain.

  • Become educated about the precautions one should take with lower back pain.
