A Personal Message From Specialist Physiotherapist, Lou Nicholettos…
Specialist Physical Therapist
When back pain starts, it’s easy to think “oh it’s just an ache and will go away tomorrow”. Or maybe you assume you just sat for too long, or lifted something too heavy in the gym. Even worse, maybe you think “it’s normal” because you’re getting older…
Is that how you’re feeling right now?
If so, you’re not alone. In fact, everyday at Cornwall Physio we help people who feel this way.
You see, with back pain, everyone asks us the same questions…
Why does my back hurt so much? (I don’t even know what I did…)
Why isn’t this back pain going away?
Am I going to have to live with back pain forever?
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of bad information out there that causes people to live with back pain for way too long. Here are the most common mistakes we see the people of Cornwall making when it comes to back pain...
Mistake #1: Thinking back pain will go away with rest.
Mistake #2: Believing that back pain will be “fixed” with painkillers.
Mistake #3: Assuming back pain is a “normal” part of getting older…
Mistake #4: Believing that since you tried other healthcare professionals (maybe even Physiotherapy) in the past means that it won’t work now.
Mistake #5: Relying on “Dr. Google” or YouTube for exercises that didn’t make any difference (or maybe even made your back pain worse!)
Mistake #6: Getting sports massage to temporarily relieve back pain, only to find it comes back after the massage wears off.
Have you been making these mistakes?
If any of this has happened to you, we want to say “we are sorry”...but remind you that you’re not alone.
In fact, we see people just like you every day.
And that’s why we’ve created a free back pain guide for you. It goes over 7 simple techniques to prevent back pain and stiffness...without surgery, painkillers, or avoiding your workouts or hobbies
(and you can click on the button above to download it).
But maybe you feel like you’ve read a lot of free information on the internet, and really just want to talk to someone about your problem.
Is that you?
If so, then we have a special opportunity for you (one that VERY FEW clinics offer).
We save a limited number of spots each week for time for people who are not sure what to do about their back pain.
That way, you can tell a professional your story, and get your question answered first, before ever making a commitment to book an appointment.
Does that sound like something you would like to do?
Here’s the most important thing…
Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next.
They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.
The one thing we can guarantee is that by doing nothing, your back pain won’t get better.
So the next important thing is to take action.
Look What Others Are Saying About
Specialty Treatment From Cornwall Physio...
(and how happy they are now...)
"Fantastic, friendly and efficient service. I have used Lou for Physio to assist with a very painful hip that ultimately needed replacing. A fact spotted by Lou prior to the NHS The treatment and advice has been first rate and always available to contact. I will be sorting my rehab programme shortly as I have recently had the required surgery. My wife also regularly Lou's expertise for sports massage to keep her running fit."
"Before discovering Lou and Cornwall Physio I had tried Massage, seeing a Chiropractor, NHS Physio and numerous other private Physios. I was recommended to Lou by a friend and reluctant at first as the journey was over 75 minutes to get to the clinic. All I can say is WOW! Best decision I ever made. Lou was able to give me a proper diagnosis for my neck and shoulder pain and I felt some immediate relief even after the first session. Everyone else had told me that there wasn’t really anything that could be done as I had a ‘frozen shoulder’, but she was able to manipulate my shoulder and neck joints and provide shockwave therapy and I am now back rowing and in the gym. A very happy customer."
"For the past 3 years I've suffered chronic pain, neurological problems and was unable to exercise, due to an undiagnosed Vitamin B12 deficiency. Louise has been able to get me to the stage where I can now exercise regularly, pain free and has helped me get my life back, which is nothing short of amazing. Although there's still a long way to go with my recovery, having her support and expertise along the way is priceless. Lou, you are the best. Thank you."
