Back Pain - Freedom Physiotherapy & Pilates

We here at Freedom Physio and Pilates have seen so many patients coming in with the same issue: back problems. If you’re currently suffering from back pain, it’s likely that you’ve convinced yourself that it will disappear on its own or that rest will heal the issue over time. Alternately, you might even believe it’s just an age-related pain.

One thing is certain, though: you just don’t know what happened. And the pain is not going away.

If this is something you’re going through, rest assured that you aren’t alone. Countless patients visit us weekly due to the very same pain and frustrations you’re going through right now. Lower back pain and sciatica are actually the most common issues our patients face. We know what you’re going through and we want to give you some advice.

When it comes to back pain, patients generally want to know why it’s happening and why it hasn’t gone away even after six months of prolonged agony.

In the search to find answers, many people visit the doctor and start taking dangerous, expensive, and unhelpful pain medication. A vicious cycle begins and the patient is often prescribed stronger, more harmful drugs as time goes by. Sadly, the result remains the same.

The truth is: the pain isn’t going to go away on its own and the painkillers ARE NOT going to help. It’s the irrationality of this circle – pain and medication, pain and medication – which explains precisely why so many patients over 50 are still suffering from back pain.

Does This Sound Like You?

If so, you’ve most likely been misled as to the cause of your back pain and why it’s not going away.

Maybe you’ve been told that it’s just an ‘age’ thing; everyone gets back pain at some point in her/his middle age. But that just isn’t true.

It’s also likely that you’ve been told a lot of conflicting information. In a world where YouTube is king and people have become so trusting of the internet, it’s difficult to find the right information for your problem. And worse still, a lot of the information being given is sometimes harmful!

Additionally, you’ve probably tried resting your back for a prolonged period of time in the hope that things might get better. And yet, they haven’t. In fact, they’ve only gotten worse. And not only that, but your recovery time has increased, too!

Lastly, you probably believe your pain was caused by doing something like sleeping awkwardly or moving in an unknown way. In fact, none of that is really true: your back pain is the result of years and years of poor posture which has caused the muscles in your back and core to weaken.

Do You Feel Like Some Of This Is Resonating With You? If So, Keep Reading.

Here are 5 more reasons why your back pain is lasting longer than it should:

  • 1. You waited for the pain to go away, resting it for long periods, only to find that it has come back worse than it was at first. Stiffness and increased aching were the result.
  • 2. You tried doing generic exercises off of YouTube or Google, only to find that the pain either got worse or nothing happened to relieve the discomfort.
  • 3. A visit to the doctor not only didn’t help, but had you taking painkillers in the hope that the pain would subside. You gained nothing except expensive bills and a large risk to your health.
  • 4. You’ve accepted that the pain is age related.
  • 5. You’ve tried massages or a physiotherapist in the past, but nothing seemed to help.

If you’ve experienced any of the above and you’re currently suffering from debilitating back pain, we invite you to give us a call TODAY.

So, how can you FIX the issue and live a life free from back pain, quickly? Here are four ways to get going:

  • 1. Deciding to get some help is the key to actually achieving the goal. Everything you’ve tried until now just hasn’t worked, so it’s time to stop procrastinating and get fixing. Remember, if nothing has changed in 6 months or more, it’s time to do something different.
  • 2. Avoid sitting for long periods of time. Contrary to the belief that the back needs to rest for long durations of time, moving your joints regularly and throughout the day will help improve your mobility and muscle strength. This leads to faster recovery times and a jumpstart into a pain free life. Remember, too much rest will often cause stiffness and aches, so get moving!
  • 3. Contact a professional, caring, qualified physiotherapist who will give you the hands-on treatment you deserve. Not only will a physio be able to ease the pain within just a couple of sessions, he/she will also give you excellent exercises and stretches to do at home. In this way, your back pain will be gone in no time, leaving you to get back to your family and social life. Physiotherapists aim to get you moving freely, healthily, and without pain – in the shortest amount of time. Their goal is your INDEPENDENCE and the MAINTENANCE OF A PAIN FREE LIFE.
  • 4. Do some extra exercises. Alongside the invaluable stretching and exercise program your physio will tailor-make for you, do some extra exercise. Whilst the physio’s suggested stretches will help improve posture and strengthen your muscles, extra exercise can increase your activity levels, too. Gentle walking, swimming, or Pilates are great ways to improve circulation and mobility, thereby ensuring that you’re well on your way to a pain free life. We want you to be as energetic, mobile, and excited about life as possible!
