What’s causing your back pain to last longer than it should?


Back pain is easily the most common complaint that people present to our clinic with. Many of the people we see have been suffering for weeks, months or even years. Quite often people are frustrated with how long their back pain has lasted and can’t understand why it hasn’t gone away by itself. These are some of the common reasons why your back pain hasn’t improved:

  • You thought the pain would go away by itself, but it hasn’t.
  • Your doctor prescribed you painkillers and advised you to rest – the painkillers soon stopped working or didn’t work at all and your back pain is still there.
  • You tried some exercises you found online however, it has caused more pain and aggravation.
  • You have been “resting” your back but end up feeling just as sore stiff if not worse after spending hours or days resting.
  • You have seen other therapists, but you feel the advice or treatment they gave didn’t help or the effects weren’t long-lasting.

If any of these things sound familiar to you, we would love to help change your experience with back pain.
