At Next Level Physio, we understand that dealing with lower back pain can be an overwhelming challenge that affects every aspect of your life. 

Our mission is to provide you with the knowledge, tools, and personalized guidance you need to conquer this discomfort and regain control over your daily activities. 

In this comprehensive guide, we will dive into how lower back pain can keep you stuck, offer valuable insights, and present effective strategies to help you not just manage, but finally overcome this condition.

Understanding the Impact of Low Back Pain

You might have been told that lower back pain is a common issue that may stem from various factors, such as poor posture, muscle imbalances, injuries, or medical conditions. 

You might also have been told that if you work on your “core” that your back pain will resolve…if that’s the case, why do many of our clients with a six-pack come in with back pain, and why are some of our clients who are (initially) out of shape, pain-free in their lower back?

Listen, with low back pain, it’s not that simple. 

We do know that the SYMPTOMS of lower back pain can range from a dull ache to sharp, shooting sensations, and it often restricts your ability to move freely. 

But, again, that’s only part of the picture because we haven’t talked about all the possible SOURCES of low back pain.

Lower Back Pain Trivia 

  1. Did you know that how you BREATHE can affect back pain?  
  2. Did you know that clients come in with misdiagnosed “sciatica” all the time?
  3. Did you know that unless you address the ribcage and pelvis mechanics, you won’t get the full picture of the true state of your lower back?
  4. Did you know that certain types of stressors can keep your body inflamed and stunted from ever healing?
  5. Did you know that sleep plays a direct role in low back pain recovery?

That’s why we know that every client with low back pain has a unique story and experience, which is why our whole-person approach at Next Level Physio is tailored to your specific needs.

Total Back Assessment for Personalized Care

Our journey together begins with a comprehensive assessment of…not your symptoms

Before we even scratch the surface, we need to talk about YOU.

  • Why did you even come to see us? 
  • What was the urgency to come to see our expert team now?
  • What solution or result were you hoping to get out of PT that you haven’t already tried?  
  • What is your next level result?

Our experienced team of physical therapists at Next Level Physio takes the time to explore your medical history, lifestyle…and dreams.

By delving into the root causes of your low back pain, we can create a customized plan that addresses not only the symptoms but also the underlying issues contributing to your discomfort.

Solving Two Diagnoses for Lower Back Pain

At Next Level Physio, we believe that the path to overcoming low back pain involves treating for two diagnoses:

  1. your “symptoms” which is the pain you’re coming in with
  2. the SOURCE of your symptoms

That’s why we use a combination of regenerative breathing and a tailor-made recovery program unique to your needs.   

Our experts will guide you through targeted exercises designed to improve your posture, strengthen supportive muscles, and enhance your overall movement options. By working together, our goal is for you to have a transformation and become the best version of you.

Empowering Education through Recovery of Lower Back Pain

Education is the cornerstone of our approach. We want you to understand your body and its mechanics, enabling you to take an active role in your recovery. 

Armed with this information, you can make informed decisions about your treatment and daily habits.

The Next Level Physio Difference

Choosing Next Level Physio means choosing a partner dedicated to your continued well-being BEYOND physical therapy. 

That’s right, it doesn’t make sense for us to provide a quick fix or help you get to feeling just “ok,” otherwise, what was the whole point?  

Our commitment to go above and beyond to provide personalized care, science-based practices, and ongoing support even after you're “done” with physical therapy is what sets us apart. 

We also practice what we preach, which is why we really understand our active clients. In fact, we’re frequently told, “I’ve never been to a healthcare provider where everyone is in shape and lives an active lifestyle!”

We’ve had physical setbacks over the years, too, so we know what it’s like to be sidelined from our favorite activities that provide us with the mental health boost we need to make it through the day.
