How To FINALLY Put An End To SCIATICA Without Surgery, Pain Medication, or Other Costly Procedures!
Is Low Back Pain Affecting Your Ability To Obtain Quality Sleep or Bend Over To Put On Your Shoes?
A Message From Owner and Operator
Dr. Brandon Evans
Does This Sound Familiar?
Are you worried about low back pain or sciatica that doesn't go away no matter how much you try?
Are you frustrated with other treatments that haven't worked?
Are you struggling to keep up with your workouts and missing out on your hobbies?
Are you looking for a long term solution so you can have your life back?
Are you tired of not being listened to and then handed pain pills to fix every problem?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
If you are dealing with Sciatica and feel like you have tried EVERYTHING and still have not been able to find the relief you are looking for please continue to read…
It is very common to think that “resting” and “taking it easy” will make your “sciatica” somehow magically go away on its own. I’m here to tell you that most times this is far from the truth. Typically, “sciatica” is the resultant of years and years of improper posture, lifting mechanics, and weakness that eventually leads to pain and discomfort.

Sciatica is one of the most overly and “WRONGLY” diagnoses that I see in the clinic. Many times sciatica is a blanketed term used by healthcare providers that are either unsure of what the TRUE cause of your pain is or simply didn’t take the proper time to get to the true root of the problem. Don’t get me wrong, there are times when sciatica is the correct diagnosis but many times it is diagnosed incorrectly. There are specific symptoms associated with true sciatica that a healthcare professional should be able to recognize. One of the culprits that gets blamed for “sciatica” is a little muscle called the piriformis. Everywhere you look, you will hear “experts” talking about piriformis syndrome. What if I told you that just treating the piriformis alone wouldn’t completely solve your pain? What if I said that you also needed to address the back, as well as, the hip to get long lasting results?
If you are ready to start your journey to FINALLY achieve long lasting results, I want to offer you a Completely FREE, No Obligation Discovery Session to determine how ProActive Physical Therapy and Wellness can help get you back to being Active without Sciatica!
Talk To A Therapist On The Phone
At Proactive Physical Therapy, We Help Active Adults Achieve LASTING Solutions to MAINTAIN an Active Lifestyle Without Surgery and Costly Procedures!
It can be very confusing to decide exactly exactly what you should do if you have back pain. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…
A family member tells you that it’s normal and “just happens” when you get older
A colleague mentions going to a chiropractor
The “experts” on YouTube recommend doing a certain exercise
A friend suggests going to a new type of exercise class
All while the doctor tells you to guzzle pain pills
At Proactive Physical Therapy, we’ve created a 5 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.
- Step 1 -
Laying the Groundwork
Most physical therapy clinics are not attentive, they’re fast paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.
This is why our first step is to listen to you story.
After working with countless people with low back pain, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain. That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.
- Step 2 -
We Find Out WHY Your Low Back Pain Started
We understand the unease we all inevitably feel when committing to something new or unfamiliar. We want our clients to be comfortable with their decision to receive Proactive care! During these Discovery Visits, we sit down with you, one-on-one, listen to your story, examine you, answer any questions you have, and we let you know what’s going on and what can be done to alleviate it.
If you are still skeptical and unsure if physical therapy is right for you…that’s fine. That is why we created the Discovery Session.
- Step 3 -
Customized Program To Help You Ease Pain and Restore Your Mobility
People are usually told to stretch or given a sheet of exercises from doctors for their back pain. But the problem is, moving or stretching irritated muscles can only increase the pain! Without proper guidance, doing the WRONG stretches or exercises can make the situation worse. It is critical that BEFORE you start to stretch or exercise it is important to alleviate pain with movement.

- Step 4 -
Retrain Your Brain-Body Connection
Most people think that once the pain is gone, the body is healed. This is simply not true! Most people don’t realize that chronic pain causes your body to develop bad compensation habits.
Examples of these”compensations” might be:
*Using you hands to push on your thighs to stand up after you’ve bent forward to pick something up from the ground.
*Putting more weight to one side of the body because of increased pain when standing too long.
*Using momentum to stand upright from a bed, or out of a chair, because of achiness or pain.
*Leaning forward too much because it relieves back pain.
Why Does This Happen?
*Because the brain interprets certain movements as harmful when you have pain!
*Most back pain exercises you see on YouTube, or learn from traditional physical therapy, only focuses on building strength or increasing mobility, they do nothing to restore the very critical brain-body connections.
*At Proactive Physical Therapy, our exercise program offers much more than a “sheet of strength exercises”, or some mobility stretches
We do this by giving you complete one-on-one focused attention in every single movement that applies to your goals.
This Will Allow You To:
*Restore your confidence in performing ALL movements that you were fearful of doing throughout the day
*Return to exercising with PROPER guidance so you don’t have to worry about hurting yourself again
*Develop ‘Brain-Body Awareness’ so you are able to self-correct any improper movement during exercise
- Step 5 -
Optimize Your Quality Of Life
Our best clients are people who are motivated and committed to becoming active again, even if they sometimes feel stuck in their current situation.
If you are willing to put in some effort and open to learning about your body, and you are ready to get back to the quality of life you deserve, then Proactive PT would be a great fit for you.
You Can Expect:
*A life where you can sit and drive without back pain, or having to pull over every 20 minutes to stretch
*A life where you can bend forward to pick things off the floor, without having to sit down from pain
*Get back to exercising without having to worry about hurting yourself again
*Be able to play with your kids or grand kids, without having to slow down or take pain pills
