Back Pain Relief with Health Loft Physical Therapy

Lower Back Pain & Sciatica can come from a myriad of sources, including sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy, back injury, osteoporosis, muscle strain, compression fractures and other conditions. No matter the source of your back pain, our Doctors of Physical Therapy will use their knowledge and skills to create an effective treatment plan for pain relief.

Individualized Physical Therapy for Back Pain and Sciatica:

Health Loft Physical Therapists in Chicago take the time to get to know you and create a personalized plan to help you overcome your lower back pain or sciatic nerve pain.

The lower back is a complex area, so before establishing a treatment plan your PT will  examine the motion of your lower back, pelvis, hips, upper back, and sciatic nerve, as well as your posture standing and sitting.

Your doctor will use this information to devise a treatment plan specific to your condition and your goals for back pain relief.
