A stronger core will help to keep you upright — especially as you age and start to become more at risk of falling.

Physical therapy can reduce treatment costs for patients.

According to the Health Services Research journal, patients with lower back pain who turned to physical therapy as a treatment first reported, on average, 72% fewer costs within the first year than those who did not. Another study by the University of Pittsburgh found that patients who received physical therapy and patients who underwent spinal surgery had the same end levels of recovery; but the physical therapy patients spent roughly half of their operated-on counterparts did.

 It is so important to do your home-exercise program! 

There is a reason that your physical therapist puts in the time and effort of designing a home program specifically for you. If you don’t follow their recommendation during therapy or after you are discharged, you will get to know your therapist very well because you will be seeing them again and again for the same problem.
