Nine years ago, I was injured in a car crash while driving to work. A speeding car smashed into the back of my vehicle while I was stopped at a red light. A few days after the accident, I began experiencing extreme pains in my back. I made an appointment with an orthopedic doctor. This professional examined my back thoroughly. He immediately recommended that I begin physical therapy. My physical therapy consisted of relaxing massage and light stretching. After a few therapy sessions, the muscles in my back started to loosen. I began to feel like my old self again. On this blog, you will discover the most common treatments orthopedic doctors prescribe for back pain.
