“Just try these exercises at home.” Surely, you’ve tried them before because someone said it was going to help your back pain. And now it’s likely you’re stuck. You do the stretches and it helps temporarily, then you are right back into the same sequence once again.
If you continue to suffer from back pain, yet you are doing your “stretches” prescribed by a doctor, trainer, or even a previous PT and this pain is NOT subsiding as you had desired it to…
You are in the right spot and the information I am about to tell you is imperative that you continue to read on.
We receive so many emails from clients who suffer from similar problems saying: “I just thought it’d go away if I did the stretches they taught me before” or “The stretches and exercises were given to me by my doctor. I thought they would work.”
Many of these people, similar to you, have suffered far longer than they have needed to. Majority give it “time” to heal and cross their fingers that this problem will go away on its own eventually. And in all honesty, most of those “daily routine” exercises, do not actually work for you in the long run.
They don’t address the root issue – this is why your back pain continues to bother you on & off even after you do the stretches. There’s enough evidence there to say you aren’t making your pain subside completely – so it’s fair to say that you are missing something.
I am getting warm?…
If I am, then we need to talk a little bit more about what you are missing in this equation.
Let’s take a simple math addition such as:
A + B = E
Let’s say “E” = complete pain relief, “A” = stretches and “B” = time. You’ve now giving it the stretches & time, but we do not have complete pain relief. What you are doing currently IS NOT working.
There are missing pieces to this equation… And here’s the thing – we see SO MANY people trying the same exact approach: time & some stretches.
See, when we age past our 40’s, joints in your back have not only stiffened up but they have weakened as well.
And certain exercises… (likely the ones you are doing now and the ones that have been mentioned above) are wasting your time! So begins the nonstop back pain that turns into more of a chronic back pain.
The secret to long term relief with back pain really then, has nothing to do with just stretches & time.
The best method to LONG-TERM (not temporary) Relief:
C + A + D + B = E
C = Hands-on relief
D = Balanced Body Training (not your eyes closed balance on one foot!)
A = Exercises for TRUE strength/flexibility
B = Time
E = PAIN RELIEF
This is the masterpiece !
I just had a patient last week email me asking “Why do these stretches NOT stop my back pain completely?”
Here’s what I told her: These stiff joints need to be loosened by a professional who understands YOUR individual presentation, then teaches you not only HOW to do exercises, but WHEN the time is right to start incorporating the CORRECT exercises. As a client once said told us after she successfully got out of pain:
“There is an intense science to our bodies, and I think that if you’re willing to step into that humility and think, “Oh this isn’t something I can just Google and find a list of exercises for. There is so much more to it and I’ll need an expert so they can break things down for me and really focus.” Then, you’ll realize you need PT and decide where you want to get PT, what kind of clinic you want to be in, and what kind of attention you need. The difference I found here is, when I come in here it’s a full hour that’s 100% dedicated to me, plus so much more. Right when I’m here, you guys know exactly where you want me to be, know the questions to ask me to figure out where I’m at currently, and there is a plan laid out. There is a science here, and it’s not just rolling through the motions of like, “okay you’re this many weeks past of where you should be, these are the exercises you need to do.” It’s super individualized here and that’s been a huge difference. “
We have been helping people like you END the frustration that comes along with being given advice on doing “generic” exercises from Google/YouTube, doctors, trainers, and drive through PT clinics (order some back pain and get a list of exercises for life).
