It’s estimated that 80% of Americans will experience some sort of lower back pain in their lifetime, with many experiencing chronic or persistent pain for significant stretches of their life. In fact, it is the second-leading cause of doctor’s visits behind the common cold. Bethesda Physiocare® offers comprehensive lower back treatment for the growing segment of Americans suffering from this kind of pain.
Physical therapy is split into active and passive forms of treatment. At Bethesda Physiocare®, we treat patients with lower back pain with therapeutic and physical treatment, instead of relying on costly drugs and often unnecessary surgery.
In addition to treating the initial pain, we try to strengthen the supporting muscles to lessen and even eliminate the lower back pain completely. When the muscles and ligaments supporting the lower back are addressed, many patients’ issues subside significantly or completely.
Since lower back pain is so common, millions of people endure, downplay, or simply ignore the pain they feel.

However, if the pain is debilitating or intrusive to daily activities, it’s even more important to have it addressed by a professional.
