How To Get Rid Of Back Pain Without Risking Surgery Or Taking Pills

If you have lower back pain, stiffness, or an ache it’s not likely that it’s the first time. It’s likely happened in the past and gone away on its’ own. You tend to write it off as having done something like “sleeping in a bad position” or “just a small tweak.” 

Eventually back pain returns, and each time it’s for seemingly no reason at all. Usually you start to seek out professional help and advice once it gets really bad, when you can’t stand up straight, or walk comfortably. 

That’s where Doug was when we met him. Read on to find out if you’re situation can be fixed, and what two big mistakes to avoid are, when it comes to fixing your back pain. 

Doug is a handyman and does some remodeling work. He has a very physical job that requires him to be in good shape if he wants to continue doing it for a long time. When we first met, him he was in so much pain he walked hunched over. He wanted to know what many of our clients want to know…

“What is happening to my body, and will I need surgery?” 

Doug had actively tried to avoid back surgery for most of his life. He had been told by doctors in the past, “There’s nothing we can do for you unless it’s surgery.” He tried his best to stay healthy, by going to chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists, cupping, you name it. He was frustrated that he had to use pills and painkillers just to get through his day. The worst part about all of it was that despite his efforts, everything only seemed to work for a little while. The results from other treatments lasted shorter and shorter times. At one point his kids would innocently tease him that they would have to be pushing him in a wheelchair sometime soon. 

Needless to say, Doug was worried. He wanted to be able to travel to Europe with his wife for her 50th birthday in 6 months, but couldn’t even make it from the car to the grocery store without grabbing a shopping cart to lean on heavily. He was worried about how he would continue to provide for his family, when his work required him to be physical. He had nearly accepted that he was broken, and that life was going to be a long road. 

Has any of this happened to you? 

Doug reached a turning point when his mood around his family began to be affected by his pain. He knew something had to change. Doug’s chiropractor had referred him to us a few months before. He had waited, because he had already been to physical therapists in the past. In these prior experiences he felt like “they were more concerned with documentation, and putting you on hot and cold packs, then giving you 3 exercises and saying ‘have a nice day’ – nothing was personalized.” 

After this one particular episode of back pain, Doug’s chiropractor recommended seeing us again. This time he was open to it. During our first meeting with Doug we took full report on everything he had tried in the past up until this point. We got to understand what worked, what didn’t work, and for how long it worked. We spoke about the physical demands of his job, and what he would need to be able to do to consider himself fully healed. We spoke about his goals, of traveling to Italy with his wife, and traveling for mission work. With all of this out in the open we then created a plan to get Doug where he needed to be. 

Doug’s plan reflected two major goals in his life. To be able to sit on a plane, and walk around sightseeing in Europe, and to be able to do his job. See the photo below to see where he is now…

Doug and his wife

He has been able to achieve these goals of his, and is now working towards getting even stronger and healthier so he can travel for his mission trips. The journey to solving back pain is not always a straight line. There are ups and downs, but here are 2 big things that you should generally avoid: 

  • Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Whoever is in charge of your treatment plan should be changing your plan according to your results. It is just as important to know when something isn’t working. 
  • Doing treatments that cause you to rely on others. You should not feel like you constantly need to go see someone to get ‘fixed’ and they don’t teach you how to fix yourself. 

How can working with DPT help you get rid of back pain once and for all? 

  • Within a few sessions we can typically make a significant dent in your daily pain. 
  • We can help you sleep better, and have more energy during the day. 
  • We can help you focus on your work without the nagging sensation of pain.
