Many times, pain begins because there is mismatch between demands on the body and capacity of the body to meet those demands. This could be movement, strength, balance, etc. Trying to fix low back pain by taking ibuprofen (a biochemical solution) doesn’t match the biomechanical (movement) problem. A movement solution addressing the hip will help to relieve the underlying cause of the low back pain.
Physical Therapists are movement experts. There is no other healthcare provider more qualified to determine why you hurt or what is holding you back when it comes to movement or activities.
