Back Pain

How to Ease Your Back Pain Naturally Without Painkillers, and Risking Dangerous Surgery

If you’re dealing with back pain, persistent stiffness, or an ache – you may think nothing of it or perhaps you attribute it to ‘getting older’. 

You might not be able to explain why you have the pain and you may be experiencing ‘good’ and ‘bad’ days with your back pain, but you know for sure it doesn’t want to go away!

If this is happening to you, you’re not alone….and we hear this all of the time.  In fact, low back pain and sciatica is THE most common condition we see in our clinic. 

Most just want to know…


“Why won’t this go away?!”

“I’ve already tried modifying how I live, but why doesn’t my pain stop?”

Many hope that the pain will just go away on it’s own.  They hope that it’ll just be gone after waking some morning like nothing happened.  But, 3 months later the pain is still there….

Maybe, you saw your doctor and they took X-rays and essentially just told you to rest and take ‘painkillers’.  But, this is usually not the best advice. 

When that doesn’t help, you seek out Dr. Google or YouTube videos to help (even though you know most of the info on the internet is not credible).  You tentatively try a few things you find online, but that doesn’t help. 

Does This Sound Like Something You've Been Through?

There are a few reasons why you have persistent low back pain:

  • You kept ignoring it
  • A doctor told you to just rest and take 'painkillers'
  • Family members have told you this is 'normal' as you get older
  • You tried other healthcare professionals or even PT's, but it didn't help
  • You tried YouTube videos which didn't help.....or just made it worse!
  • Someone told you to try massages...and that didn't work

If any of these sound like you, we would love to help you by inviting you to book a phone call with our Physical Therapist at our Oregon, WI clinic to find out what can be done to help you.

It’s a GOOD thing that you’ve tried some (or all) of these things as this will help us determine what DOESN’T work. 

Click on the link below to schedule a call to get some real advice over the phone.  We’ll be pretty blunt with you.  The phone call is a courtesy we provide without any obligations to book future appointments.  Our goal is to simply help you make the right decision so you don’t get strung around by other providers. 

"I've been told to try physical therapy, are you right for me?"

We want you to be comfortable with us before working together.  If you’re skeptical or unsure about us, we invite you to start out with a completely-free, no obligation, risk-free 20min Discovery Visit with our PT.  

During this visit, we’ll determine the source of the problem and give you an opportunity to see what we’re about.  After the free session, we’ll provide you with options for how to best address your issue. 

Or, if you're simply tired of restless nights or not being able to participate in your activities, and want to done with it, click on the Costs and Availability button below and complete the short form:
