Working as a professor requires me to stand and sit for a lot of hours every day. At the university, I have to stand in front of the students while giving them my lectures. At the office, I have to stand for several hours to do paper works such as journals, research papers, student records, and others. Even though I always strive to sit properly, there are many times that I sit in a way that my back hurts after some time. When at home, I have to attend to my little kids. There are also many times that I have to carry them just to keep them away from minor accidents inside the house. Being at their very young age, we all know that they are so energetic and moves all the time. So imagine how difficult it for me to stay and rest for a few minutes when at home. With all these, I suffered from back pains that I thought I can address by taking medications.
Because most of us are after accessibility and convenience, I tried taking over the counter medicines just to combat the irritating back pains. They also cause discomfort in the way I feel every day. My performance at school is affected and the way I care about my kids at home is also significantly affected. When I realized that my every day is not as normal as before, I consulted with my husband and asked him about the best way to address my situation. He mentioned about a back pain treatment that has helped his colleague at work. He told me about physical therapy which is also known as physiotherapy and its numerous powers in helping people heal and recover from muscle and joint pains, sports and other kinds of injuries, and other known diseases. He also shared with me valuable information about the credible and reliable physical therapy clinics in our area. It made me feel hopeful because it means that I don’t have to go to nearby cities just to look for a clinic that offers excellent physical therapy and other related treatments.
The next day, I took my laptop and searched online about the nearest and most established physiotherapy clinic in our area. I did not have difficulty in having a short list of the names that are claimed to be excellent in providing back pain treatments and other physical therapy services. Because contact information are on their websites, I chose one and contact them immediately. I had my appointment scheduled the coming weekend. The day before my schedule, the pain in my back started bothering me again. This really pushed me to visit the clinic based on the appointment I have scheduled with them.
On the day of my schedule, I met a friendly and good looking practitioner of physical therapy. Though she is in her 40s she doesn’t look her age. After some introductions she instructed me to narrate my condition and situation. So I told her everything I do at work and at home and how these resulted to back pains. She then discussed with me what physical therapy is all about and how it can effectively help patients recover from unhealthy conditions without having the need to take dozes of tablets, syrups or injectables. I was amazed when she said that I only have to perform certain sets of exercises on a regular basis and I will recover from the back pains that have been bothering me and causing me discomfort.
When I came home, I was happy and excite to try the exercises. I shared with my husband everything I have learned at the clinic. It has been more than a month now and am impressed with the results. Aside from the exercises, I was also instructed to follow proper posture when sitting and standing. Nowadays, I am able to focus in everything I do because there are no back pains that take my attention. I have also become more flexible because I can now do movements that I found difficult to execute before.
With everything that has happened to me after I tried the powerful treatment of physiotherapy, I couldn’t be more thankful because it has greatly improved my life at work and at home.
