If you have back pain caused by bulging or degenerative disks or by spinal stenosis…it can be very frustrating searching for a solution that actually lasts and completely resolves your pain. There are a lot of quick-fix options out there, that simply manage your pain, without actually addressing the cause.

Back pain, including lower back pain, can make it hard to handle your daily responsibilities at home and work, and stop you from being active with your friends and family.

On this page you’ll find out: 

  • What 81% of people with back pain have in common.
  • What the root cause of most back pain is. 
  • What is required in order to fix your back pain for good. 
  • How to spot a short-term solution.
  • Options for what to do about your back pain.

How Does Back Pain Caused by Bulging Or Degenerative Disks or Spinal Stenosis Get Solved For Good?

While many providers focus on one area, a joint, a muscle, a ligament, at The Doctors of PT, we understand its necessary to approach your case as a whole. The parts of your body work together and that needs to be taken into account when diagnosing what the root cause of your limitations are, and what to do about them.

There are three things that are necessary, in order to get you back into an active, pain-free life. 

Component #1

Accurate diagnosis of the ROOT CAUSE of your pain. The physical location of where symptoms are, is often the result of a deeper problem. Sometimes it means digging a little deeper with our evaluation and finding a way to tackle the issue at its source. Not only will your pain go away, but you may find yourself feeling stronger than you have felt in years. When the root cause is found many people are not surprised to find out that a nagging injury from the past contributed to their current pain.

Here’s the best part: Even if that injury is years in the past, a good provider can still develop a plan to get it corrected. 

Component #2

A comprehensive STRATEGY to get you from point A to point B (Point B is your goal lifestyle). There are many factors that contribute to pain in your back. Tight muscles, sprained ligaments, weakness, stiff joints, bulging or degenerative disks in your spine…There is no one size fits all, and a strategy is needed to address each individual component of your condition, while fixing the root cause. 

Component #3

Take frequent measurements. Measurements allow a provider to determine how you are responding to your specific treatment. This is more than just a “Hey, are you feeling better, or worse? Scale of 1-10?” situation. Taking real measurements of your range of motion, strength, and movement patterns on a regular basis is necessary. When a provider has a STRATEGY, when the measurements are not meeting expectations it allows them to figure out why, figure out what will work, and then change direction.

The Truth

The truth is, that we live in a society that loves its easy, quick-fixes for serious problems. This has led to short-sighted medicinal solutions to back pain, that simply fail to address the root cause of what inside your body is causing your pain.

Since it’s become the norm to address back pain with pills or surgery, that’s the solution doctors and insurance companies have shifted towards. As a result, it’s difficult for active people who want real solutions to find good help. 

If living an active life is important to you, it can be heart breaking to have a doctor look you in the eyes and tell you to stop doing what you love. It can feel like a big part of your life has been ripped away. That’s why it’s important to find a Scottsdale back pain physical therapy doctor for your pain related to bulging disks, degenerative disks, or spinal stenosis who is on-board with you helping you live the best life you can.

When you treat the body as a system, you leave no stone unturned. This means that the solutions you get are lasting, adding YEARS to a healthy active lifestyle where you can continue doing what you love.


How Do I Know If I’ve Received a Quick-Fix For Your Back Pain?

The following scenarios are common when you’ve been given a quick fix…

  • You have gone to the MD, who prescribed some pain meds and then told you to come back if they didn’t work.
  • You have been getting massages but the next day your muscles are tight again.
  • You have been to chiropractor, but your stiffness keeps coming back
  • You have been to physical therapy, and the exercises they gave help a little, but you have to do them all day long to feel any better. 
  • You have been to any doctor, but they have only focused on the area of pain, and not what the other areas of your body are doing. 
  • You have gone to pain management, and they recommended injections, or burning your nerves. 
  • As a general rule, when you have back pain, your pelvis, hips, mid-back, and the firing of your multifidus muscle should all be checked. If this is not so…you might have had a quick-fix.

The truth is, that while a quick fix sounds nice at the beginning, you know it ends up costing more time and energy, and ultimately leads to more issues down the road. Deep down, you may be tired of quick fixes. 

If you’re frustrated by the short term results that quick fixes provide, you may be a candidate for our “PHIX” approach (pronounced “fix”).

What is “The PHIX Approach?”

  • A complete analysis that looks at your body as a complete system, not just one piece at a time. 
  • A combination of the latest and most impactful research across many industries. 
  • An analysis of the root cause of your back pain.
  • An individual treatment plan to address every aspect of your limitation.
  • The bridge between getting you “healthy” and keeping you active, mobile, and strong. 
  • A focus on using hands on treatment and movement to heal. Our Scottsdale back pain physical therapy team does not use hot-packs, estim, or other forms of passive temporary treatments. 
  • A standard our doctors hold themselves to, that makes sure you get the highest possibility of achieving your outcome.

  • Try sleeping with a pillow underneath your legs if you sleep on your back, or between your legs if you sleep on your side. 
  • Stop stretching into your pain. If you’ve been stretching your back and it helps for a little while, then stiffens back up this is NOT the solution, and you might be prolonging it.
