If you’ve got lower back pain, stiffness, or an ache – it’s very tempting to think it’s nothing – the pain will just go away on its own. Or, you pass it off as having slept awkwardly, hoping it will go away as it has before. There’s obvious reason why it happened, but it doesn’t seem to be going away!
If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone. We hear this type of thing all the time.
In fact, Lower Back Pain is THE most common body part we treat at our physical therapy clinic in Lawrence Township. And when it comes to ending back pain, everyone wants to know:
Most people think that when they get Back Pain, it’s just going to go away on its own. That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, it’ll be as if back pain never happened… But then 6 months later you’re still living with back pain – often even worse than it was when it came on.
Another scenario we see all the time in our Physio Clinic is when people go to the Doctors, and the Doctor tells them to rest and “try these painkillers” and “see how it goes”. But this is rarely ever the best advice and often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the Doctor again because it hasn’t got any better. Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills and advised MORE rest. This is madness and explains why so many people aged 50+ are suffering from chronic lower back pain.
Why else does back pain last longer than it should do? Well, it’s easy to get confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. There are lots of people out there who are happy to dispense advice – but not all of it is credible.
Maybe you think your back pain was caused by doing something – like lifting or sleeping awkwardly – but really it was caused by years and years of poor posture that caused the muscles in your lower back to become weak and the lifting of the awkward sleeping position was just the EFFECT of that.
If you don’t know what you’re doing – back pain can be very confusing and because of this, many people just end up accepting it as ‘part of life’ – as if it’s normal, and ‘just the way it is’.
If any of these have happened to you, we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our physical therapists to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work, you are closer to finding the thing that does!

The phone call is complimentary and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after the call is over. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best.
Make A Commitment To Getting Help: First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people procrastinate for so long, thinking that Back pain will ‘just go away with time’, but then 6 months down the line they’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed… Or it gets worse.
Get To The Root Cause: If you’ve tried physical therapy, chiropractic care, or massage before and didn’t make a full recovery, the reason is that one took the time to diagnose and address the root cause of your pain or injury. If that’ not addressed, any treatments will just be addressing symptoms and will only give you temporary relief at best. With a customized approach to your treatment, we can get to the root cause to fix the real issue that’s causing your back pain.
Avoid Long Periods Of Rest: Ever tried to get up from the sofa after resting for a while, but you struggle because your back feels so painful and tight? That’s because one of the worst things you can do that adds to Back pain is rest, and sit for long periods of time. Too much rest, and sitting in awkward positions make your back stiff and tight. It would really help if you were given appropriate strengthening exercises for better posture, alongside hands-on treatment, to get you active and healthy as quickly as possible.
