These exercises help you manage a painful episode of lower back pain and become healthier. As you progress through your program, your feedback determines changes to your program.

Pain Free Back faithfully works to identify the cause of your distress. Sometimes specific exercises are recommended to help manage an acute pain episode. In other cases the program will help guide you to the ER or your treating physician, when exercise is not appropriate for you problem. As the pain resolves and changes, the app guides you to a progressive maintenance program with a flexibility component, a core component and a basic strength component. These elements ensure long term stability and to help maintain the pain free status that you are likely to achieve by using the app, over the long term.

The exercise programs were designed by a very experienced orthopedic physical therapist who has treated thousands of people suffering lower back pain for decades. With 40 narrated videos to illustrate the program, you should have no difficulty following the advice offered and achieving the exercise objective as you work toward a pain free status. Occasionally the input identifies patterns that need further evaluation and you would then be advised to seek the advice of your physician. In one or two instances, you are referred to the Emergency Room rather than to your physician.
