Do you know when you have lived with pains for so long, it is “just a part of you”?
This is one of the MANY common statements I get from my patients. So one of my goals is to take on those patients and show them that living without that “normal” pain is POSSIBLE.
Today, I will be talking about a patient, let’s call him “Ray”, that came to me stating he had 35 years worth of back pain under his belt.
This pain was just PART OF HIS LIFE, and he had learned to just deal with it.
What he could not do, due to pain.
However, as he “lived with his pain”, he had stopped:
- Doing the workouts he loved
- Sleeping well at night
- Enjoying his drink at the end of the day in his chair
- Riding his motorcycle
- Feeling confident in his balance
- Lifting and moving furniture for his friends and family
- Standing for long periods of time at events
- ….and more
Now, does this sound like LIVING WITH PAIN? Or avoiding many of your favorite things, which are part of your life?
So, Ray met us at an event and decided that it was time to deal with this “pain that was normal for 35 years.”
When Ray came in for his appointment, we let him know that because he had pain for 35 years, it was unlikely that he would be “cured” in just 2-3 visits. And luckily, he agreed with this sentiment.
We found that Ray had limited hip and ankle mobility, core strength, and balance control.
Ray began his journey with us and it was a THRILL to hear him come in the other day and state:
- “I have not had pain all week!”
- “I do not struggle to get out of my chair at the end of night.”
- “I have been able to ride on the bike without any cramping.”
- “I have worked out every day and still no pain has come back.”
- “I was able to move furniture and stand at an event all weekend without a flare up.”
- “I was able to balance on one foot to put my boot on, which hasn’t happened in years.”
AND ALL AFTER 35 YEARS OF DEALING WITH THIS PAIN, BECAUSE IT WAS JUST PART OF HIS LIFE!! And finally he was pain free.
Let this be your wake up call if you need it: DO NOT spend 35 years thinking this is as good as life gets and watch all your favorite activities slip away.
