Lots of people come in to see us wanting a quick fix for their back pain. They may have had their back ache off and on for years. They may be out of shape physically, having done no meaningful exercise since school. They may be sitting 8 hours a day in a poor chair working at a stressful job. And they want us to get them better in a visit or two. We tell them honestly – it isn’t going to happen that way.
We do get patients with a bad back better. Lots of patients. We get great results and they are really happy with our care when we ask them for feedback. One reason we get great results with back pain is we know that for most it is going to take a while.
