If you have low back pain, stiffness or aches, it's easy to think that it's ”no big deal” and that it will go away on its own. You might just think that you “slept funny” it’s a normal pain that comes with age.

A lot of times the pain isn’t caused by anything obvious. But now it doesn’t seem to be going away!

If this is happening to you, you're not alone: we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact low back pain and sciatica are the most common problems we see here at Empower Physical Therapy and Wellness.

So when it comes to suffering from low back pain, everybody we see wants to know:

“Why Am I Hurting?”

Or

“Why has nothing worked?”

Or

“Why isn’t my back pain getting any better?”

Most people think that back pain will just go away on its own. That they'll wake up one day and the pain will magically go away as if it never happened. But six weeks later, they're still having back pain and not only that, it has become worse.

Does that sound like you?

Another scenario that we see here at our Physical Therapy Clinic is that people go to their doctors, and the doctors tell them to rest, take medications and “see how it goes”.

Unfortunately this is rarely the best advice. A lot of times, they end up going back to the doctor again because the pain hasn’t changed. Worse of all, there given more medications, stronger pills and advised to get more rest. Or they're told by their doctor to see a specialist whose advice is a shot or have surgery. This explains why so many people are living with chronic low back pain.

Has This Happened To You?

Why does low back pain last longer than it should? It's easy to get confused because you've been told so many different things by different people. There are lots of people out there who are happy to give you advice, but not all of the things you hear are reliable.

Your low back pain might have been caused by something like lifting or sleeping awkwardly. but it could have been caused by other things that were never properly taken care off (poor posture, stiffness, weakness and muscle imbalance). .These things along with that time you lifted something awkwardly, finally caused that pain your experiencing.

If you don't know what you're doing, or you have received poor advice, back pain can be very confusing. Because of that many people end up accepting that back pain is just part of their life.

Do You Feel That Way Too?

If You’re Currently Living With Back Pain, Here are 7 Reasons Why It Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

    1. You thought it would go away on its own - but it didn’t
  • frown-o
    2. You went to the Doctor who told you to rest and take pain medications - but the pills either did NOT help, or helped only for a short period of time (until the pain came back again!)
  • frown-o
    3. A friend, or family told you that everybody gets back pain as they get older, so you just accepted it
  • frown-o
    4. You tried other Healthcare Professionals, or a Physical Therapist in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help
  • frown-o
    5. You tried YouTube exercises but they either did nothing, or made your back pain worse
  • frown-o
    6. You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your Back pain was so bad, but all that did was make it feel even more stiff and tight
  • frown-o
    7. You decided to get a few “massages” hoping that would fix the pain, but all they did was feel nice and relaxing, and didn’t do anything to fix it long term…

I couldn't exercise, sometimes I couldn't sleep. I couldn't, go grocery shopping. I couldn't make dinner, I couldn't play with my kids. The impact that Empower has had on my quality of life is that now I can do the things I want to do and take care of my family and enjoy them.

I would push things off like, oh, it will just get better, it will heal if I just rest. I was hoping the problem would go away. I knew I didn't want surgery or at least I would like it to be the last option. Since coming to Empower I actually feel better and stronger than ever.

My experience with Empower has been nothing short of awesome. When I first got here I couldn't sit down or stand up without crying because of my lower back pain and I'd been suffering for what, Gosh, 10 years. Since coming here I'm able to sit down and stand up without crying.
