How to Get Housework Done Without Back Pain

During the pandemic we have been home a lot more and that means doing a lot more housework. You could be doing something as simple as taking the trash out, gardening, folding your laundry, or even changing the sheets when all of a sudden you feel a sharp pain in your back and you can hardly move… Sound familiar? Just a few weeks ago this happened to one of our patients, Ann, 57 from South Bay. She was making the most of a quiet weekend, and before she planned on relaxing, she decided to do get the cleaning done. Anne was fine to begin with, but as soon as she went to turn over her mattress she put her back out completely. At first the pain wasn’t so bad, but then a few hours later her back began to stiffen up. Like most people we see, at first she thought “It’s just a stiff back, I’ve probably got a bit carried away with the cleaning, it’s happened before.” But the next day the pain was still there, and it felt even worse! Anne’s back started to ache when she sat down, she struggled to find a comfortable position to fall asleep in, and she couldn’t even bring herself to stand without being in agony AND she had a weekend away planned. How was she going to get away with a back so painful? “That Only Happens To ‘Other People'” You might be thinking this won’t happen to you,… Read More

Is Back Pain ‘Driving’ You Mad? 7 Tips To Alleviate It

If you drive fairly long distances to and from work every day, if your job requires you to drive long hours, or if you’re the designated driver in your family – it’s likely you’ve experienced back pain. Around 30-60% of drivers report having back pain at some point in their life, and a lot of the people we see in the clinic come to us in pain as a result of spending 30 minutes or more on the road, almost daily! But why does something as simple as driving trigger off back pain when it’s not exactly strenuous? Driving for long periods of time exposes the body to many different forces such as acceleration, sudden stops, and most notably vibrations from the road – and it especially affects those who drive larger vehicles. Driving also involves the use of your feet to control the cars pedals which means they are not used to help stabilize and support your lower body as they normally would when sitting. It’s no wonder why a combination of these factors, as well as the inadequate design of some vehicle seats can cause back problems for many of us. Back pain can make driving unpleasant (in some cases, unbearable), so I put together a list of tips to help make your next journey as pain-free as possible. Here are 7 tips to help you: 1. Get Comfortable Before You Set Off –  A small irritation can quickly grow into an… Read More

We Have A Free Report For Those With Knee Pain!

Over the last 10 years… I’ve been working on a daily basis to help people aged 45+ find relief from chronic knee pain. What I can tell you is that the cocktail mix of more rest and more painkillers will do absolutely nothing. No matter what most doctors say! Because I’m growing increasingly frustrated with the number of people suffering unnecessarily that I’ve written a report that details the 7 things any person can do to relieve knee pain naturally. And I want to send you this report completely at no charge. This report is for the person who is suffering from the torment of daily, annoying, chronic knee pain. The type of “ache” and pain where you get so nauseated that you feel your only option is to stop what you’re doing completely. Or to reach for the pain medication drawer and wonder when it will stop. The thing is, all of those pain medications are not good for your stomach. Plus the long periods of rest you’ve been told about is not likely to be doing you much good either. What Can You Expect Now, I don’t know if these 7 things will relieve you of your knee pain completely. I can’t promise that what worked for my patients over the past 10 years, will work for you too. However, reading my free report is definitely better than spending another day “resting”. Better than “accepting it” thinking “it’s your age”. Or worse yet, masking it… Read More
