Low Back Pain
How To FINALLY Get LOW-BACK PAIN RELIEF Without Surgery, Pain Medication, or Other Costly Procedures
"Help, my low back is keeping me awake at night. I can’t even bend over to put my shoes on. What Can I do? ”
Are you dealing with Low Back Pain and feel like you've tried everything but still can't find relief? Have you been doing everything right - resting, icing, stretching, and doing a bunch of exercises you saw on YouTube – but still have Low Back Pain?
If so, please, read on…
It’s common to think that "resting" and "taking it easy" are simple treatment options that magically make your back pain disappear. I'm here to tell you that, most times, this is far from the truth. Low back pain typically results from years and years of improper posture, lifting mechanics, and core weakness, eventually leading to pain and discomfort.
Does This Sound Like You?
In our clinic, the story typically goes something like this…
I started having Low Back Pain "X" months ago, but the pain has worsened over time. It almost seems like the pain came out of nowhere because I can't remember any specific injury. I went to see my MD and was told that Low back Pain was my age and was in bad shape. I was also told I needed to take it easy and stop exercising, running, etc.… I was prescribed pain medication and/or offered an injection in my lower back, which gave me temporary relief, but the pain returned. I am starting to think this is my new "normal," which makes me unhappy because I feel too young to deal with this pain. I don't want surgery, and I fear taking pain pills because they can be addicting. I just want my life back. I want to walk through the grocery store, exercise, and play with my (grand) kids without knee pain".
If this sounds like you, I want you to know that something can be done to provide lasting results other than pain medication, surgery, or injections.
The Truth About Low Back Pain
If you’ve got lower back pain, stiffness, or an ache – it's common to assume that it's nothing and will go away on its own. A couple of other common misconceptions are that it's no big deal because you must have just "slept in an awkward position," it's just a "spasm" that "everyone" your age suffers from, or it's genetic because "bad backs run in your family." Unfortunately, if that's happening to you, you're not alone. In fact, Lower Back Pain is the most common problem that we see in our physical therapy clinic here in Louisville, KY. And when it comes to living with back pain, everybody we see wants to know:
"Is this something I'm just going to have to live with now?"
Fortunately, the answer to that question is a resounding NO! There is something that can be done to give you Long Term relief from chronic low back pain.
Most people fall into the trap of going to their MD or even a "low back specialist." X-rays and MRIs typically show "degenerative disc disease" or a "herniated disc." These findings then lead the MD to conclude that your pain is directly correlated to the conclusions of the diagnostic imaging. The TRUTH is that after age 50, almost EVERYONE will have degenerative disc disease (or loss of space between vertebrae), and many people walk around with a "herniated disc" and are asymptomatic.
To be 100% honest with you, more than 70% of "herniated discs" resolve themselves.
Your MD prescribes pain medication or injections and tells you to return in 3 months. You may get temporary relief, but often, the pain either returns, doesn't get any better, or, in most cases, worsens. This leads to the MD prescribing stronger pain medication or more injections. Now, you get stuck in a perpetual cycle of getting only temporary relief without solving the TRUE cause of the pain.
(Have you ever wondered why you can only have three injections yearly? There is a specific reason for it, but that's a different topic we will save for another day.)
