7 Tips to Reduce Back Pain and Stiffness Without Needing Painkillers, Injections or Surgery


How To Put An End To Your Back Pain, Get Stronger & Stay Active, WITHOUT Risking Surgery, WITHOUT Relying On Pain Pills & Without Missing Out On The Activities You Love!

If you’ve got lower back pain or sciatica, stiffness or an ache, it’s easy to think “oh it’s just an ache and will go away tomorrow”. Or maybe you assume you just slept wrong or just sat in that hard chair too long. Even worse, maybe you think “it’s normal” because you’re getting older...

There’s no obvious reason that it happened, but it doesn’t seem to be getting better!

If so, you’re not alone - we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, Lower Back Pain and Sciatica is THE most common problem we see at Hybrid PT. We help people every day who feel exactly this way.

When it comes to living with back pain and sciatica, everyone wants to know…

 "Why am I having this back pain?"

 "Why did my back pain return, even though I've gotten it treated before?"

 "Why has just resting not fixed my back pain?"

 "Will I ever get back to the workouts and activities I love without pain?”

Most people think that when they get Back Pain or Sciatica, it’s just going to go away on it’s own.


That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, it’ll be as if back pain never happened… But then 6 months later you’re still living with back pain - often even worse than it was when it came on.

Does That Sound Like You?

Another scenario we see all the time in our Physical Therapy Clinic is when people go to their Doctors, and the Doctor tells them to rest and “try these painkillers" and “see how it goes”.

But this is rarely ever good advice and often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the Doctor again because it is not any better. Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills, and advised MORE rest. This makes no sense and is exactly why so many people are suffering with chronic lower back pain - because the traditional healthcare system doesn't give them the care they so desperately need.

Has This Type Of Thing Happened To You?

Why else does back pain & sciatica last longer than it should? Well, it’s easy to get confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. There’s lots of people out there who are happy to dispense advice - but not all of it is credible.


Maybe you think your back pain was caused by doing something - like lifting or sleeping awkwardly - but really it was caused by years and years of poor posture and repetitive stress that caused the muscles in your core to become weak and the lifting or the awkward sleeping position was just the EFFECT of that.


If you don’t know what you’re doing - back pain can be very confusing and because of this, many people just end up accepting it as ‘part of life’ - as if it’s normal, and ‘just the way it is’.

Is This How You Feel Too?

If You're Currently Living With Back Pain Or Sciatica, Here Are A Few Reasons It Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

❌ You thought it would go away on it's own...but it didn't.

❌ The Doctor told you to rest and take painkillers - but the pills did nothing to help the cause, and as soon as they wore off, your back pain came back.

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

❌ You tried other treatments, even Physical Therapy in the past, but it didn't seem to help, so you think it won't work now.

Relying on Google or YouTube for exercises that didn’t make any difference (or maybe even made your back pain worse!)

❌ You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your Back Pain was so bad, but the rest only made it feel worse!

You got a few relaxing massages, hoping it would fix the pain, but the pain came back a few days later.

If any of this has happened to you, we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with a Doctor of Physical Therapy to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work - you are closer to finding the thing that does!

The phone call is complimentary and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after the call is over. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best.

What Can I Do To Get Rid Of My Back Pain And Sciatica Quickly?

Here are 4 things you can do that will help you end back pain and feel free:

1) First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people rest for weeks, hoping that the pain will ‘just go away with time’, but then 6 months down the line they’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed…or the pain has gotten worse.

2) Next, do the RIGHT exercises - one of the best things to help you ease your back pain is to do the right series of progressed exercises. The right exercises given to you by a back specialist will help reduce pain, and allow you to move freely again quickly - and make sure that the problems don’t come back any time soon.

3) Avoid long periods of rest - the truth is that our bodies were designed to move. While certain activities like running or lifting may bother your back right now, that doesn't mean that restricting all movement is what you need to be doing. In fact, it might be the very thing that makes your back pain worse. If certain movements are painful, it's important to find the root cause and get you moving properly so you can continue staying active without back pain.

4) Get real, “hands-on” and customized treatment - Customized physical therapy treatment is proven to help people with back pain. In fact at Hybrid PT, it’s one of the most common issues we see people aged 30+ living with. If your back pain is affecting your job, if it stops you from keeping active, or if it threatens your independence and gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends - high quality and customized treatment can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.

Success Stories of Those Who WERE Suffering From Back Pain & Sciatica Pain 

Paolo B.

"Went to Hybrid PT after injuring my low back after a deadlift exercise in the gym. James was very personable and professional. He wanted to talk to me first before scheduling my first visit to make sure that he can actually help me with my problem - something that I appreciate to ensure none of his or my time is wasted. His clinic was clean. I love the gym like set up - I had the feeling that I will do real work! You are his only client during your scheduled visit which is very important for me, unlike other run-of-the-mill clinics where a PT can be working with 2-3 patients every hour or a patient is being seen by a different PT on every visit. What I like most is he really makes you work during your "rehab". My muscles do get sore during each sets and I actually get tired after my PT sessions! After six sessions, I am pain-free on my low back. I'm back to deadlifting again although he gave me insights about focusing on my warm ups and cool downs to prevent future injuries. I would definitely recommend James for your physical therapy needs. And I would definitely go back to him if I need his help in the future."

Douglas P.

"I first came in contact with Dr. Park years ago while rehabbing with him at another PT facility. He impressed me with his knowledge and attention to detail. Recently, I have experienced lower back pain that nagged me for weeks. I was able to find James at Hybrid PT and after a few visits, adjustments and a strenuous exercise program I'm feeling much better. I have learned so much from him and highly recommend his services. You owe it to yourself to see Dr. Park before considering any more serious alternatives."

Brianna C.

"I went to see James for a lower back and hip injury last month that was keeping me from exercising and playing tennis regularly. I was impressed by James’ knowledge and his positive approach to solving the problem. I left the first session feeling hopeful about my recovery. James spent a full hour of one on one time with me figuring out what exercises I could do that would be productive without causing pain. By that evening, I already felt significantly less pain. At this point, I am pain-free and back to my usual routine thanks to James. I would highly recommend James to anyone looking for a PT who cares, is personable and very effective!"
