As a physical therapist I have the chance to meet and work with so many amazing people! But sometimes things don’t always start off as expected.
Here is one such story.
His name was Dave. Despite our now great friendship, it honestly started out a little rocky to say the least.
“Don’t take this the wrong way…”
Those were the first words out of Dave’s mouth when I asked him to tell me a little more about his chronic neck and back pain.
Understandably, he was a bit skeptical and quite frustrated by the time he came to see me. He had been through the carousel of medical providers
for several years and was close to giving up hope.
His neck and back pain were now both constant and even radiating into his left leg. He couldn’t sit, stand, or even lay down without pain at this point and didn’t know what else to do.
He had shown up to our office for a free consultation after a lot of encouragement from a close friend and wasn’t afraid to share his skepticism.
“Don’t take this the wrong way,” he said, “But I’m pretty sure that there isn’t anything you can do for me. I’ve already tried EVERYTHING–medications, creams, exercises, back braces, a chiropractor, a massage therapist, and even another physical therapist–and none of it has helped.”
At this point he was beginning to think he would be living with this pain the rest of his life.
Fortunately for Dave, that turned out not to be the case. Within the first month of us working together he reported a 90% improvement in his symptoms!
Like the hundreds of others I’ve worked with before him, he hadn’t gotten an answer to his problem simply because he hadn’t yet found the right solution.
The good news is, because Dave never gave up, he eventually did find the right solution.
After so many years of suffering, it’s amazing to see him now living a life free from the constant limitation and frustration of neck pain, back pain and sciatica.
Everyday we work with people just like Dave from all across the Charlotte-metro area.
If you can relate to his story, don’t waste another day telling yourself you’ve already tried everything.
