Q) Will My Back Pain Go Away On It’s Own?

There’s a chance it will, but my experiences working with hundreds of back pain and sciatica cases tells me it won’t until the cause is addressed. So many people hope it will go away, or try to put a band aid on it by taking pain killers, using hot packs, or getting medications, and even after all that there’s a good chance it still won’t go away. 

Instead, you should consider all natural, customized physical therapy treatment.

Q) What Is The Difference Between Chiropractic Care And Physical Therapy?

Let me preface this by saying that there are excellent chiropractors and there are not so excellent ones, just as there are excellent physical therapists and not, excellent lawyers and poor lawyers, etc.

But when you ask about chiropractic, I can only assume you have experienced the conventional method of chiropractic care, which relies upon adjustments.

The biggest problem with traditional chiropractic case is that you become dependent on it, and you always have to go back to be “put back in place”.

Proper treatment, whether it’s physical therapy or chiro, should find the true root cause of your pain and address that, so it does not come back.

There should then be a treatment strategy consisting of exercises designed to re-stabilize, align, and strengthen the correct areas to ensure you maintain your proper position and alignment.

Q) How Do I Choose The Right Physical Therapist For Me?

This is an excellent question. After all, it can be so hard to know who is the right person for you. Do you ask about their physical therapy certifications, client reviews on google, or just make a gut decision?

After all, how do you choose between the physical therapist who is telling you that your back pain is coming from your discs versus the one who is telling you that it is coming from your sciatic nerve?

Here’s our guide to helping you find the best physical therapist for you:

  1. Do they offer free consultations and allow you to ask all your questions before making a decision?
  2. Were they able to provide you with a solid understanding of the cause of your pain?
  3. Have they laid out what your process will look like in a way that you can understand and have confidence in?
  4. Do they have experience helping people just like you?
