Back Pain Got You Frustrated?
If you answer “Yes” to any or all of the following:
Please click on the link above, enter your information, and read on.
Most people that take pain meds for 2-4 weeks develop a tolerance to their effects. This means that they will lose their effectiveness, unless you take more. This can potentially cause addiction.
Pain meds actually can decrease your tolerance to pain, which will increase your sensitivity to pain.
Safe alternatives to taking pain medication include exercise and manual therapy.
Scientific studies now indicate that prolonged rest and avoidance of activity for people with low back pain actually leads to higher levels of pain, greater disability, poorer recovery and longer absence from work.
Exercise can significantly prevent the recurrence of an episode of low back pain. Exercise also helps reduce low back pain and disability levels, when people stick with it in the long-term.
Be aware too that all low back pain is not the same. So if you tried one form of exercise that has not helped you, talk to a healthcare professional who can set a specific program.
With professional guidance under a licensed physical therapist, exercise can help your back by strengthening the muscles that support your spine.
While there are a few spine conditions that require surgery, the vast majority of back problems are resolved without surgery.
Only a tiny proportion of people with back pain require surgery. Most people with back pain can manage it by staying active, developing a better understanding about what pain means, and identifying the factors which are involved in their pain.
This should help them continue their usual daily tasks, without having to resort to surgery. On average, the results for spinal surgery are no better in the medium and long-term than non- surgical interventions, such as exercise.

(and how happy they are now...)
"My first back issue began when I was 26 years old and lasted 10 years of MRIs, doctor appointments, missed work, and lots of tears. I would get better for a short time, only to be hurt again. About two half years ago, I heard about Strive and Carri. I was in the midst of another span of severe back pain. Working full time and a mom of two younger children, I was ready to commit and try something different. I had nothing to lose! In these two years Carri has helped rehab me back to where I know longer have back pain! It’s amazing and her individual attention and plan helped me become stronger and feel better. I started with Cari on an individual basis and slowly was able to join her classes, which she still individualizes for my needs. I also continue with monthly manuals which helps support my continued back rehab. Her therapeutic/ workout classes are surrounded by supper supported people who all have different health goals. I was so amazed with my results and lack of back pain, I requested that Carri work with my 77 year old Mom twice a month to help with her pains and muscle building. Carri takes great care in helping my mother’s needs and meeting her at her skill level. If you are in some sort of pain or need classes that will make you stronger and healthier, Strive is your place! Thank you Carri for forever changing my life."
"Carri is not only an excellent physical therapist, but also a fantastic trainer. I've been working with her for over a year and she brings the same high level of enthusiasm to every class. Her passion for physical therapy and fitness paired with small class sizes and personal attention set her apart from so many of the other group fitness options. I have seen her work wonders on a number of classmates who previously suffered from chronic pain and old injuries. Carri will get you into shape and keep you healthy no matter what age!"
