Back Pain

Back pain is undoubtedly the number one problem that Lou addresses in his clinic. It is a debilitating condition that can have a profound effect on people’s lives.
Lou, as an experienced physical therapist, understands the multifaceted challenges that individuals face when dealing with back pain. Tackling back pain can lead to having a disruption in daily routines and limit one’s ability to work, engage in physical activities, and even enjoy a restful night’s sleep. It affects people physically, emotionally, and mentally. The constant discomfort and limited mobility can lead to frustration, anxiety, and a reduced quality of life.

For many, the ability to work is compromised when back pain strikes. The pain can make it difficult to sit at a desk, lift objects, or stand for extended periods, which can be particularly challenging for individuals with physically demanding jobs. This can lead to missed workdays, financial strain, and job-related stress.

Engaging in favorite activities and hobbies may also become impossible with back pain. If it is playing sports, gardening, or even taking a leisurely walk, the fear of exacerbate the pain can keep individuals from doing the things they love. This loss of enjoyment can have significant impact on a person’s mental wellbeing.

However, there is a lot more that can be done. It is common for people to be repeatedly told to live with it, but he firmly disagrees with that mindset. Generally, people will have pain that’s centrally located in the middle of their back, or they have pain that’s radiating into either side of your buttocks, or even sciatica which radiating down one or both legs. He addresses this the same way he looks at all physical ailments.

But looking at the problems that may be driving the back pain is something a lot of healthcare practitioners do not have the time to do, and distant parts of the body can affect the back covertly.

They must be found and issues such as muscle imbalances or joint stiffnesses, when addressed with hands on expert techniques helps get people back to the activities that they love. People may not be able to walk, or sit or stand for very long. Or if it’s a situation with sciatica, you may not be able to sit, nor have the ability to bend over and pick up your child or enjoy in your usual physical activities.

Lou initially engages in discussions with the patient to understand their symptoms and concerns while also determining their goals and achievable directions. He then conducts a comprehensive evaluation aimed at uncovering factors such as muscle imbalances, joint restrictions, and postural problems, that are also contributing to the pain.

Hear From Happy Clients of Ours

In December (2021) my back and related pain was to the point I was ready for surgery, but the Lengthy recovery time just did not work for my lifestyle.

My now favorite surgeon recommended Delray Care with unexpected confidence in their ability to help me. Encouraged I started therapy the beginning of the year with a goal to be able to go on a fishing trip early March.

Within a week the excruciating pains were reduced by 90%, by the end of February my bags were packed, and I was able to enjoy a trip of a lifetime.

Delray Care’s Therapy is truly unique. I’ve had more than my fair share of injuries and PT visits over the years, and nothing compares to Lou’s approach to healing the human body.

Thank you, Delray Care!
