A Message From Garrett C. Stroup, DPT, AIB-VRC, Owner and Founder of OrMobility Physical Therapy & Performance

Back pain is frequently disregarded as something that will resolve on its own. Often, it is attributed to “awkward sleeping,” a “spasm,” or a common ailment that everyone experiences at some point. Despite there being no apparent cause, the pain persists without improvement.

If you have experienced this, you are not alone; we frequently encounter similar accounts. The most prevalent issue we encounter in our Mobile Physical Therapy is lower back pain and sciatica.

When addressing back pain, everyone we encounter is curious…

“Why Is This Happening to Me?” or “Why Do I Still Experience Pain Despite Enduring It for 3-6 Months (Or Even Longer)?”

Many individuals hold the belief that their back pain will resolve on its own, that one day they will wake up and it will be as if the pain never existed. However, six months down the line, the pain persists, often worsening from its initial onset.

Do any of these sound familiar to you?

Another common scenario we encounter in our Mobile Physical Therapy is when patients visit a doctor who advises them to take painkillers, relax, and “wait and see.”

Nonetheless, this is not always the best advice, and often after four weeks, patients return to the doctor because their condition has not improved. To make matters worse, they are often prescribed stronger medications and advised to rest more. This nonsensical approach is a major reason why a large number of Americans continue to suffer from chronic lower back pain.

Have you experienced something similar?

What are the other factors that contribute to prolonging back pain? With so many people providing different advice, it can be easy to become overwhelmed and confused. Although many individuals may offer guidance, it is often unreliable.

You might think your back pain resulted from lifting or sleeping in an uncomfortable position, but in reality, it may have been caused by years of poor posture and activities that weakened your lower back muscles. Lifting or sleeping awkwardly was merely a symptom of the underlying issue.

Back pain can be confusing, and without proper knowledge, many individuals simply accept it as a natural part of life. However, several factors can prolong back pain. With numerous people offering different opinions and advice, it can be challenging to distinguish between reliable and unreliable information.

Is that how you feel, too?

If You Are Currently Suffering From Back Pain, Here Are Seven Other Reasons Why It May Be Persisting Longer Than It Should:

  1. You believed that your back pain would resolve on its own, but it persisted.
  2. You visited a doctor who prescribed painkillers and advised rest, but the medication provided little relief and the pain returned when it wore off.
  3. A family member or friend convinced you that back pain is a natural part of aging, so you accepted it.
  4. You sought help from various healthcare professionals or physical therapists, but their treatments did not provide any significant improvement.
  5. You tried following workout videos on YouTube, but they either had no effect or worsened your back pain.
  6. You decided to rest and take it easy, but it only made your back feel stiffer and tighter.
  7. You received massages hoping for relief, but they only provided temporary relief and did not solve the underlying problem.

If you have gone through any of the aforementioned situations, we encourage you to book a consultation with our specialist in low back pain.

Can You Suggest Any Quick Solutions to Alleviate My Back Pain?

Here are four potential solutions to consider:

  1. The first step is to decide if you want help: Delaying seeking assistance for back pain can result in the pain becoming worse or persisting for an extended period.
  2. Perform the appropriate exercises: Engaging in a specific series of progressed exercises, as recommended by a qualified physiotherapist, can significantly reduce pain and restore mobility, without exacerbating the problem.
  3. Avoid prolonged sitting and inactivity: Sitting or resting for extended periods can worsen back pain by causing the back to become stiff and tense. Improving posture through appropriate strengthening exercises and receiving hands-on treatment can be beneficial.
  4. Receive hands-on physical therapy: Physical therapy has been demonstrated to be beneficial in treating low-back pain, making it one of the most common injuries addressed at OrMobility Physical Therapy & Performance. Seeking professional assistance can help you recover more quickly, allowing you to return to your daily routine and enjoy life with loved ones.

What People Say About
OrMobility Physical Therapy & Performance

I injured my knee and reached out hoping I could get on track towards recovery right away. I got a reply immediately and was set up with an appointment. During the appointments, Dr Stroup was very professional, knowledgeable, and invested in my personal case and injury history. Having the appointments at home was extremely convenient as we have a busy life with our kids and work schedules.

- Derek S.

My husband was in an automobile accident that has left him a quadriplegic. Arriving back home in Roseburg after 3 months in the hospital and inpatient rehab, we were greatly concerned about how we were going to continue the physical therapy he would need. Garrett has been an answer to prayer! We have been impressed with his knowledge of the issues that come with spinal cord injuries and also his willingness to work around our schedule and develop a plan that is specific to my husband’s needs and goals. He is very professional, safety conscious and kind. We highly recommend him!

- Kristin Y.

We have been using OrMobility Physical Therapy & Performance since January as my husband recently had 2 knee replacements. Garrett has been invaluable in my husband’s recovery and rehabilitation. Garrett provides a level of service and caring that exceeds standard care. He has genuinely cared that we have the best outcome. Garrett is always prompt for our scheduled appointments and is always professional. We highly recommend OrMobility Physical Therapy & Performance. Truly a 5 star business.

- Melody H.

Garrett has been very knowledgeable in helping with the popping in my jaw. I did not realize you could have physical therapy exercises for TMJ issues. He is also helping me with tennis elbow. He comes to my home and I find it beneficial that I don't need to wait in a waiting area or wonder how to do the exercises when I get home. He shows me how to best do the exercises using what I have in my home, (chairs, table, weights etc). He is knowledgeable yet able to explain in a "down to earth" away what is causing the pain and how I need to do the exercises. He also follows up with a personalized online program that explains my specific exercises which ensures that I am successful in completing them. Thanks Garrett!

- Shelly P.

I find OrMobility Physical Therapy & Performance to be unique and effective. They get results. Dr. Stroup offers personalized Physical Therapy. He evaluates your situation then designs a program to address the issues that reduce your ability to perform daily living tasks. He is always mindful of your limitations, abilities and goals with a positive approach and is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend OrMobility Physical Therapy & Performance and Dr. Stroup.

- Marie D.

Garret is extremely knowledgeable, caring, and thorough. Not to mention a great personality would be an oversight. I highly recommend him. His assessments are spot on. I have no doubt that his plan of recovery will get me where I want to be.

- Kathleen S.

I recently completed several Physical Therapy sessions with Garrett Stroup of OrMobility Physical Therapy & Performance due to my difficulty walking and pain throughout my leg. Initially it was difficult for me to re-learn to use the appropriate muscles and to stop using weaker ones to compensate. My leg is now pain-free and my gait is much improved, and, more importantly, I am much safer when walking. I no longer must use assorted ice packs every evening and surprisingly my restless leg syndrome symptoms have almost disappeared. I benefited so much from my therapy sessions and I would not hesitate to to recommend Garrett to anyone looking for a good physical therapist.

- Barbara T.

I was diagnosed with vertigo when I was admitted to the hospital. After seeing my primary physician he recommended physical therapy and referred me to a facility in Roseburg. Before I made the appointment I was informed there was a physical therapist that would make house calls. I asked my primary doctor to please give him my name. Garrett Stroup called me the same day and made an appointment for the next day. He was at my home prompt the next morning. Was very informative regarding what he could do for me. After two sessions with him I am no longer having the dizziness that comes with vertigo. I highly recommend Dr. Garrett Stroup if you want to have therapy.

- BCorrine M.

Garrett has been a colleague of mine for years. He’s an excellent PT and passionate about what he does. If you have pain or dysfunction, he’s your guy.

- Alex P.

Garrett is an exceptional therapist that has a good grasp on how to not only relieve pain but to also return you to function. As a colleague I have found him to be an amazing therapist and recommend him wholeheartedly. He will get you to where you want to be so you can get back to living they way you want to live.
