How to Ease Back Pain Naturally So You Can Find Life's Joy Again

– A great success story from a former Achieva Rehab client with severe spinal stenosis
“I have participated at other physical therapy facilities using the fancy machines. Achieva Rehab is different. They use what you have in your home so that you can function in your everyday life. You will not find anyone with more knowledge, compassion, or perseverance to have their patient achieve their goals than Achieva Rehab.”

"Last week, I was so scared!  My back hurt so much, I couldn't even walk!"  Sound familiar?

If you have low back pain or stiffness or aches, you may be like others and believe it will just “go away on it’s own” or that you will have to live with it. 


It’s probably just from moving too much yesterday is what your internal voice might be saying. 

But now it doesn’t seem to be “going away”.

If this is happening to you, you're not alone - we hear this type of thing all the time.


In fact low back pain and sciatica are very common problems we see in our Home Program at Achieva Rehab.

Everyone like you wants to know the same things:

“Why Am I Hurting?”


“Why Is This Pain Lasting So Long?  Nothing I’ve Tried Has Worked.”

Many people just like you think that back pain will disappear without doing anything like a magician’s assistant in a large black box.  Six months later, not only is the pain still around…it’s worse!”

Does That Sound Like You?

Some people have decided to do something about it so they see their family doctor who tells them to rest, take medications and “see how it goes”.  Sounds like a plan…surely that is what will work.

Unfortunately this is rarely the best advice. A lot of times, they end up going back to the doctor again because the pain hasn’t changed.  This time, they're told by their doctor to see a specialist whose advice is a shot or have surgery. This explains why so many people are living with chronic low back pain.

Has This Happened To You?

Why does low back pain last longer than it should? It's easy to get confused because you've been told so many different things by different people. There are lots of people out there who are happy to give you advice, but not all of the things you hear are reliable.

Your low back pain might have been caused by something like lifting or sleeping awkwardly, but it could have been caused by other things that were never properly taken care of (e.g. poor posture, stiffness, weakness and muscle imbalance etc.) These things along with that time you lifted something awkwardly, finally caused that pain you are experiencing.

Back pain can be very confusing. Because of that many people end up accepting that back pain is just part of their life.

Do You Feel That Way Too?

If You’re Currently Living With Back Pain, Here Are 7 Reasons Why It Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

  • 1. You thought it would go away on its own - but it didn’t.

  • 2. You went to the Doctor who told you to rest and take pain medications - but the pills either did NOT help, or helped only for a short period of time.  (Your body can actually get used to the pain meds and they become less effective).

  • 3. A friend, or family told you that everybody gets back pain as they get older, so you just accepted it.

  • 4. You tried other Healthcare Professionals, or a Physical Therapist in the past, unsuccessfully.

  • 5. You tried YouTube exercises but they either did nothing, or made your back pain worse.

  • 6. You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your Back pain was so bad, but all that did was make it feel even more stiff and tight.  And..your muscles weaken.

  • 7. You decided to get a few “massages” hoping that would fix the pain, but all they did was feel nice and relaxing, and didn’t do anything to FIX THE PROBLEM…

If any of these things have happened to you, we would love to help you by inviting you to schedule a FREE Phone Call with one of our expert physical therapists. The fact that you tried any, (or all) of these things is actually a good thing because when you know what doesn't work, we will be closer to finding the thing that does.

“What Can I Do To Get Rid Of My Back Pain Quickly?”...

Well, here's 4 things you can do:

  • ​1. First, you need to decide to get help. So many people put off getting help right away.  “A stitch in time saves nine.”  Right?  So true.  Six months of waiting makes it worse. 

  • ​2. Avoid Rest.  Well-designed clinical trials suggest that an early return to normal activities — with some rest as needed — is better than rest for an extended period. 

  • ​3. Get real, “hands-on” Physical Therapy - Specialized Physical Therapy is proven to help people with low back pain. In fact, it’s a very common problem that we treat with our In-Home Physical Therapy Program at Achieva Rehab.  If your back pain is affecting your job, your ability to keep active, if it threatens your mobility and independence or gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends – expert PT will help you back on the path to joy.

  • ​4. Next, do the RIGHT exercises - one of the best things to help you ease your back pain is to do the right series of corrective exercises - specifically created for you by our expert Physical Therapist to help reduce pain, and allow you to move freely again quick - and make sure you get back to doing the things you love to do!
