You've tried everything and here you are.
Learn pain management strategies that actually work.
“I followed the strategy guide and within a couple of sessions working on my pelvis, not only was my back feeling better, I was able to play with my daughter again. After a couple more, I was able to swing a golf club.”
The back is rarely to blame for it’s own demise. If the ankles, hips or pelvis can’t do their job, the back does all the work.
Getting the back or core stronger doesn’t solve the problem if the rest of the system isn’t restored. By focusing attention on the under-working parts, you can alleviate the burden on the over-working parts (the back!).
“I didn’t want back surgery, but I was desperate. 6 months after they cleaned things out, my pain was still there. After the first session of working on my hips and I began to feel relief for the first time.”
The goal of surgery is to change structures of the body in hopes that they will not hurt anymore. Frequently, these structures were worn-down due to overuse and the added trauma of surgery makes things worse, not better. By identifying the parts that are under-working, the segments of the back can recover and repair.
“I had been to PT. Three times a week...for 4 months with minimal change in my back, so I was very hesitant to try this. My friend finally convinced me and by the end of the first session, I had more relief than ever before.”
Most of the old-school ways of treating back pain involve stretches and core strengthening that you can easily find on the internet. The heat, stim and ultrasound at the PT office do very little to encourage healing without addressing the root cause of the problem in a person’s body.
Each body and its movements are entirely unique, due to our own injuries and life experiences. Effective strategies must be focused on restoring the entire movement system to allow for the relief and recovery of the parts that have been overworked and worn-down.
“I had gone to a chiropractor every week for 3 years with very little change in my back pain. After one week of following the strategies in the guide, I feel a whole lot better.”
Chiropractic back cracking feels good, but usually only increases movement in areas you already had it. The stiff regions stay stiff, the loose areas get looser. We often find people who have relied on this method require mobility in very specific areas: the overlooked, stiff ones. The frequently cracked areas usually require targeted stability because of how loose they have become.
“I was taking far more anti-inflammatories than I ever wanted to, but my back was still in pain and my activity level was continuing to decline. The relief I got from injections was not lasting as long each time. I was getting desperate.”
Anti-inflammatories and injections help to reduce some of the agony from an over-worked structure in the body, but unless the burden is reduced on that structure, the inflammatory process continues.
“I don’t like taking pills, but I need to be able to move without pain.”
Pain pills mask the signal of pain, but do nothing to solve why it’s there. This allows the body to continue breaking down tissues, but without the consequence of pain only until the pills wear off.
“At first, I just wanted to be able to stand without my back killing me. Quickly I learned how many things I had given up and avoided because of this pain.”
Goals are everything. Most of our clients initially just want to be pain-free with their daily activities because they have been limited for so long.
We typically need to reshape goals and expectations so our treatment can be focused on life, not pain. We want goals to be focused on getting back to life and the activities our clients have missed for too long.
