When I hear patients say, “Oh my back only hurts 2 or 3 times a year” (
and I’ve heard this a lot over the 27 years I’ve been a PT)
My response is… “If your car engine light turned on, would you ignore
it? Would you continue to drive with it on risking a bigger and more
expensive problem? Most likely not!
Yet so many people continue to dismiss their pain… Why?
When you feel reoccurring pain in the same region, even if it is not on a
regular basis, this should be a huge red flag of a developing problem.
Taking action early to resolve this problem may potentially correct this
Just something to think about…
Pain is not normal!
