Are you struggling with persistent back pain?

Our experienced team is dedicated to helping you regain your mobility and live pain-free.

Common Causes of Back Pain

Understanding the root cause of your back pain is crucial for effective treatment. Here are some of the most common causes of back pain:

1. Muscle Strain

Overexertion or sudden movements can lead to muscle strain, causing discomfort and limiting your mobility. This is often due to lifting heavy objects incorrectly or engaging in strenuous activities without proper preparation.

2. Poor Posture

Spending long hours sitting or standing with poor posture can strain your back muscles and spine. This is a common issue for those who work at desks or spend a lot of time driving.

3. Herniated Discs

A herniated disc occurs when the soft material inside a spinal disc pushes out through a tear, irritating nearby nerves. This can lead to significant pain and discomfort.

4. Sciatica

Sciatica is characterized by pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve, which runs down one or both legs from the lower back. It is often caused by a herniated disc or bone spur compressing the nerve.

Mruga Dani is a very good physiotherapist. I had a couple of injuries from marathon training. She helped me understand what was happening and explained the severity to me. During the sessions she talks. She will help you understand the technicalities by telling you how each exercise or stretching helps and which muscle group it targets. She did not limit herself to treating a specific injury. She helped me understand how the injury was related to weakness in certain muscle groups. We worked towards making those muscle groups stronger. I had a very holistic recovery as well as learning experience working with her. I am able to run better, faster and stronger. I don't hope for any injuries anymore but would like to work with her in the future.

Here comes Mruga Dani as a savior at Radiant Physical Therapy! I was suffering from severe pain on my hip and lower back which went on for a week.The session was very satisfactory where the pain was thoroughly checked and no rush on reaching to conclusion. I was given demonstration for each exercise and also was advised to continue at home. Also, I liked how she accommodates with your preference to the appointment timings. I highly recommend Radiant PT for top-notch care and personal attention.

I recently had my first session with Dr. Mruga, and I can confidently say she is the kindest doctor I have ever met. Her thorough examination and compassionate approach were truly remarkable. During our initial visit, she not only assessed my condition meticulously but also encouraged me to advocate for further screenings if my symptoms worsen, demonstrating her thoughtfulness and dedication to my well-being. Dr. Mruga’s kindness and genuine care have made a significant impression on me, and I am genuinely excited about continuing treatment with her. Her ability to blend professionalism with empathy is unparalleled, and I have not experienced such a level of compassion with any other doctor. If you are in need of a physical therapist, I highly recommend visiting Dr. Mruga. Her commitment to her patients' health and her considerate manner ensure that you will receive exceptional care. I wish I could give her more than 5 stars because she truly deserves it.

I cannot recommend Mruga highly enough for anyone in need of pelvic floor physical therapy. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed and understood. She is not only incredibly knowledgeable but also compassionate and attentive to my needs. After struggling with diastasis recti, I was desperate for a solution. Thankfully, I found Mruga, who not only provided effective treatment but also empowered me with knowledge and encouragement every step of the way. I was amazed to see visible changes within the first few weeks of treatment! Her personalized approach and expertise truly made all the difference. I am forever grateful for the positive impact she has had on my health and well-being. If you're searching for a pelvic floor physical therapist who goes above and beyond, look no further than Mruga Dani. Thank you for everything!

Dr. Mruga Dani is one of the most hard working and considerate doctors with not only an advanced knowledge of PT techniques but also an amazing bedside manner. Not only has she cured my neck/back pain issues, but has been instrumental in helping me rehab my knee after ACL and meniscus surgery. Her 1:1 personalized and dedicated care combined with spacious and well equipped facilities have helped my speedy recovery. Thank you!
