Enhance your lifestyle without compromise by exploring this tailored solution designed exclusively for you.
A Message from Dr. Krzysztof Pakula, Owner & Founder of WERK Wellness

It is a widespread belief that back pain is a minor issue that will resolve itself over time. Many individuals attribute it to sleeping in an uncomfortable position, a muscle spasm, or a common ailment experienced by everyone at some point.

The cause behind this pain may not be evident, yet it persists without improvement.

If you find yourself in this situation, rest assured that you are not alone. We frequently encounter individuals facing the same dilemma, as lower back pain and sciatica are the most prevalent issues we treat at our clinic.

When it comes to coping with back pain, everyone we assist is eager to find out…

"Why is this Happening to Me?" or "Why Am I Still Enduring Back Pain Despite Tolerating It for 3-6 Months? (Sometimes Longer!)

Many individuals hold the belief that when they experience back pain, it will eventually resolve itself without intervention.

They anticipate waking up one morning, and as if by “magic,” the back pain will have vanished… Yet, six months later, they find themselves still grappling with back pain—often, it has even worsened compared to its initial onset.

Do You Relate to That?

Another common situation we frequently encounter at our clinic is when individuals visit their doctors seeking relief. The doctors typically recommend rest and prescribe painkillers, advising them to observe how it progresses.

Unfortunately, this approach seldom yields optimal results, and after four weeks, many individuals find themselves returning to the doctor’s office because their condition hasn’t improved. To make matters worse, they are often prescribed even stronger medications and instructed to rest further. This cycle is absurd and contributes to the high prevalence of chronic lower back pain among individuals in California.

Have You Experienced a Similar Situation?

Why does back pain persist longer than expected? It’s understandable to feel perplexed when you’ve received various explanations from different sources. Many individuals are willing to offer advice, but not all of it carries credibility.

Perhaps you believe your back pain was triggered by a specific action, such as lifting or sleeping awkwardly. However, in reality, it could be the result of years of poor posture and improper movement, which weakened the muscles in your lower back. The lifting or awkward sleeping position was merely an effect of this underlying cause.

Without proper understanding, back pain can be incredibly confusing. Consequently, many people simply accept it as a normal part of life, assuming that’s just the way it is. Why does back pain persist longer than it should? The abundance of conflicting information from various sources contributes to the confusion, making it challenging to find reliable guidance.

Do You Share the Same Experience?

If You Are Currently Enduring Back Pain, Here Are Seven Additional Reasons Why It Might Be Persisting Longer Than Expected:
  1. You believed it would resolve on its own, but it did not.
  2. You visited a doctor who recommended rest and painkillers, but the medication provided no relief, and as soon as its effects wore off, chronic back pain returned.
  3. A family member or friend told you that back pain is a natural part of aging, so you resigned yourself to accepting it.
  4. You sought help from other healthcare professionals or physical therapists in the past, but their advice and interventions did not yield significant improvement.
  5. You attempted exercises from online platforms like YouTube, but they either had no effect or exacerbated your back pain.
  6. Due to the intensity of your back pain, you thought resting would be beneficial, but it only made your back feel even more rigid and tight.
  7. You decided to receive a few “massages” in the hopes that they would alleviate the pain, but they merely provided temporary relaxation without addressing the underlying issue.

If any of these situations resonate with you, we would be delighted to assist you by inviting you to schedule a call with our low back specialist. This conversation aims to determine how we can help you. The fact that you have already attempted various approaches is positive because knowing what doesn’t work brings you closer to discovering what does.

"How Can I Quickly Alleviate My Back Pain?"
Well, here are four steps you can take:
  1. Make a decisive choice to seek help: Many individuals postpone seeking assistance, believing that back pain will eventually resolve itself over time. However, after six months, they find themselves still enduring the pain, or it may even worsen. It’s important to take action instead of waiting.
  2. Engage in the appropriate exercises: Performing a targeted series of progressive exercises, guided by a physiotherapist, can greatly alleviate your back pain. These exercises not only help reduce pain but also promote freedom of movement. It is crucial to receive exercises tailored to your condition, as some exercises can potentially exacerbate the issue.
  3. Avoid prolonged sitting and excessive rest: Sitting for extended periods or engaging in excessive rest can contribute to back pain. Have you experienced the discomfort and difficulty of getting up from the sofa after a long period of rest? This is because too much rest and sitting in awkward positions can lead to stiffness and tightness in the back. Strengthening exercises focusing on posture, combined with appropriate hands-on treatment, can help you regain mobility and overall health rapidly.
  4. Benefit from hands-on physical therapy: Physical therapy has proven to be effective for individuals suffering from low back pain. At WERK Wellness Physiotherapy, it is one of the most common conditions we treat. If your back pain is affecting your job, hindering your ability to stay active, compromising your independence, or interfering with quality time spent with loved ones, physical therapy can help you reclaim the life you deserve in the shortest possible time.
