An accident or sudden injury occurred. Or maybe you have no idea what happened but suddenly woke up or started feeling pain.
Certain activities like lifting or twisting a certain way cause low back pain. Maybe your pain is ongoing or maybe it goes away but keeps coming back.
So you try some over-the-counter pain medication. Maybe apply a heating pad and bed rest. Your friends and family advise heat and / or cold packs. Since you’re not sure which to try, you try either or both.
Days pass. Maybe weeks. But nothing seems to do the trick. At least for long.
In the meantime, people seem to roll their eyes if you even mention that you still have pain in your back. “Aren’t you over that yet? Go see someone”, they suggest.
So off you go.
Results? You get the run-around. Your chiropractor sends you to your family physician who sends you to a specialist who sends you to a clinic… blah, blah, blah. And each visit means more time, more schedule juggling, more tests, more insurance paperwork, more medications to try – - - more headaches, not to mention more backaches.
Your healthcare professionals, co-workers and even your friends, all seem to be telling you about the same thing, “It must be all in your head, because there is nothing wrong with you. ”
But you know it’s not in your head. It’s in your BACK!
Yep – your back pain is STILL hanging around… just like yesterday’s “To-Do’s” that keep piling up while you’re wasting precious time and energy trying to manage your healthcare, co-workers, friends, family - - -heck, your own SELF. Stress city!
Wouldn’t it be great to put an end to all that and just find relief for nagging back pain problems? Wouldn’t it be great to end the waiting in doctors’ offices, in rush hour traffic, in slow pharmacy lines?
