Back Pain

A Message From Philip Boozer, MS, ATC, C-PS Owner and Founder of Return2Play

It is a prevalent misconception that back discomfort is harmless and will resolve on its own. It’s also typical to attribute it to “sleeping uncomfortable” or a “spasm” or something “everyone” experiences at some point…

There is no clear explanation for why it occurred, but it does not appear to be changing!

If you’re experiencing this, you’re certainly not alone, since we hear about similar situations frequently. In fact, Lower Back Pain is our clinic’s most prevalent condition!

And when it comes to coping with back pain, everyone we encounter is curious about…

“Why Am I Experiencing This? Or, “Why Am I Still Suffering From Back Pain After Putting up With It for Three to Six Months?”

The majority of people who experience back discomfort believe it will disappear on its own.

We believe that there is a magical moment when you awaken one morning and your difficulty has vanished. But six months later, you’re living with persistent back problems that are frequently far worse than they were initially.

Does That Describe You?

One of the most frustrating things we see in our clinic is people coming in with chronic lower back pain and telling us their previous doctor told them to “rest” and take pain relievers. What is the issue? It’s not working! They would have returned to their doctor, frustrated and in pain if they had not visited our clinic.

Has This Type of Thing Happened to You?

It’s difficult to know what’s best for your back pain. You’ve been told so many different things by people in positions of authority. Unfortunately, the majority of it is useless!

It’s not just about what you do when it hurts, but also how frequently you do it. The more frequently an area becomes weaker or an injury worsens as a result of poor movement and posture, the more difficult it will be to work that part of your body. If we do not take steps to restore balance through strengthening exercises designed specifically for those areas, we will experience chronic pain.

Back pain is often a confusing issue that people just accept as “the way things are”. What else could explain why backache lasts so long? It can be difficult to know what to do because there have been so many different instructions given by different sources, with little credibility behind them all!

Do You Feel the Same Way?

If You Are Currently Experiencing Back Pain, Here Are Seven Additional Reasons Why It May Be Lingering Longer Than It Should:

1. You believed it would go away on its own, but it did not.

2. The physicians advised you to relax and take painkillers, but they had little effect on your back; as the pills wore off, the chronic pain reappeared.

3. Age-related back pain is universal, so you simply accepted it for what it is.

4. You had already tried different healthcare providers or a physical therapist, but nothing they said or did help.

5. You attempted YouTube workouts, but they failed or made your back ache tenfold worse.

6. Your back pain was so severe that you thought resting would help, but it actually made your condition worse.

7. You opted to get a couple of “massages” in the hopes that they would alleviate your discomfort, but all they did was make you feel good and didn’t solve the problem permanently.

You’ve previously tried everything and it still hurts? You need not continue to suffer.

If you have experienced any of the above, we would love to assist you by inviting you to a free phone consultation with one of our skilled back specialists who specializes in assisting individuals like yourself to get relief from their chronic low-back pain issues.

“What Can I Do to Quickly Eliminate MY Back Pain?”...

Here are four things you can do:

1. Initially, you must make a selection regarding assistance: It can be a grave error to believe that back discomfort will disappear on its own over time. As most of us are aware, it doesn’t work out that way, and six months from now, you’ll still be in an unpleasant situation, when what you truly need is a program that WORKS paired with some easy changes to your daily routine in order to break the cycle!

2. Next, perform the CORRECT exercises: The correct series of exercises prescribed by your physiotherapist will help lessen your back discomfort and restore your mobility. These are some excellent methods for getting rid of it rapidly, so don’t delay!

3. Avoid prolonged sitting and rest: Sitting on a couch for too long might exacerbate back pain. You need more movement and exercise, as well as hands-on treatment from physical therapists that understand the importance of this, in order to recover rapidly!

4. Physical therapy can make a world of difference for individuals suffering from low back pain. This is a common injury at Ready2Play, and we want to help you find relief as soon as possible!
