The most common questions we receive about Back Pain are:

“Why Is This Happening To Me?” & “Why Am I Still Suffering With Back Pain After Putting Up With It For 6 Months Or More”

Back pain and stiffness is one of the most common injuries that people in there 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond suffer with. It’s not uncommon for people to think “ If I ignore this it will go away on it’s own”. Very often it will be a funny nights sleep, an awkward lift or simply by doing a little too much in the garden. Maybe you thought that the stiffness you are experiencing is just one of those things that you need to accept due to your age. Maybe you have done nothing (that you can recall)…but it’s just not getting any better.

Most people with lower back pain, stiffness and sciatica will hope that it will just go away on it’s own. Generally 6 months down the line back pain become part of the daily routine and people very often “just live with it”. You find yourself having to second guess everything and stop or alter doing the things that you once loved to do due to the risk of your back “going again”

Does That Sound Like You?

If any of this resonates with you..you’re not alone- we hear and see this type of issue ALL the time. In fact, Sciatica, Lower Back Pain and Stiffness are THE most common problems that we see in our Physio Clinic in Stoke on Trent.

If Your Currently Living With Back Pain or Sciatica, Here Are Seven Reasons That It May Be Lasting Longer Than It Should

 

1. You didn’t think it would actually take this long to go.

2. You went to your GP who told you to rest, take some tablets – but the pills did little to help your back, and as soon as they wore off your Back Pain flared up again!

3. Someone you know told you that “it’s just part of getting older”.

4. You tried other Healthcare Professionals, or a Physiotherapist in the past, but it just didn’t seem to make a difference.

5. You searched the Internet, watched some exercises videos or got ideas that promised immediate relief but they either didn’t do a thing, or even made your Back pain worse.

6. You thought it would be a good idea to “rest and wait it out” but that just made things stiffer and the pain worse.

7. You decided to get a few “massages” hoping that would fix your back, but all they did was feel nice and relaxing in the moment, and didn’t do anything to fix it long term…

“What Can I Do Today To Help My Back Pain or Sciatica Today?”

1. It’s time to make the conscious decision to make your life better and seek help. Making decisive actions have a knock on effect to our mental well-being and well help you feel more in control of your life and your future. Make the decision today to starting taking steps in the right direction towards a life without Back Pain.

2. Exercise is great, but are you doing the right exercises? This is not something that can be taught through a sheet of paper, and any Health Professional worth their salt would not give you such false hope. Only by attending appointments with a qualified, skilled and experienced Physiotherapist who can demonstrate and help you learn the exercises in a controlled, supported and safe environment will you gain any benefit.

3. Avoid sitting and long periods of rest! Ever tried to get up from the couch after resting for a while? Do you struggle because your back feels so painful and tight? That’s because one of the worst things you can do for back pain is rest or sit for long periods of time. Too much rest makes your back stiff and tight. It would really help if you were given appropriate strengthening exercises for better posture, alongside hands-on treatment, to get you active and healthy as quickly as possible.

4. Get proper “hands-on” Physiotherapy! At the end of the day, all of the above will help you feel better, and will help you reduce pain, but very often it will keep coming back again and again. Only by committing to attend Physiotherapy sessions will you actually experience any long lasting results. If your back pain is impacting your way of life, you job, your social life and ultimately – your happiness – it’s time to take action.

I was suffering with sciatica and decided to visit Brown's as I didn't really know how to help myself. I was in a lot of pain, just sitting down was extremely uncomfortable and painful. Donal was very knowledgeable from the start and very clear with the treatment process. I felt very confident that he would be able to help me and he has. After 6 or so sessions I am definitely on the road to recovery. Donal is very friendly and professional. I felt he genuinely wanted to help me, and was more than happy to answer all of my questions, of which I had a lot! I would highly recommend Browns and Donal and his excellent client care.

Couldn’t recommend enough! I contacted Donal as I’d been suffering with migraines and neck problems that were caused by anxiety.Although my anxiety wasn’t exactly Donal’s job to fix, he went out of his way to teach me breathing exercises and send me links to use at home when I was struggling.After 6 sessions, I’m rarely getting the migraines and overall, it’s helped with my anxiety A LOT!!Again, couldn’t recommend enough, such a lovely person and very fair/honest with treatment.Thanks Donal!! 🙂

After injuring my hip when running, I decided to go to Browns after the injury didn't clear after months of rest. While I was a bit apprehensive at first, having never been to see a physio before, Donal put me at ease right away. Explaining to me what was wrong and how we were going to fix it. After my 6 sessions, not only am I pain free but running just as fast as I was before my injury! Thanks Donal

Working remotely in lockdown at a desk and a running injury resulted in a very painful hip flexor lasting nine months. After trying other professionals and not getting any relief I found Donal and my search ended!Donal assured me he could fix my problem and six sessions later, he has! Each session lasts about an hour. I received deep massage into the painful ligaments and tendons, was given a few simple exercises to do each week during the course of treatment and now I am pain free. If you’re looking for a friendly, highly skilled and professional physio who provides excellent value for your money, he is your man!

I can highly recommend Browns Physiotherapy. Donal is very knowledgeable and puts you at ease straight away. I was very anxious attending my first appointment but his knowledge, explanation of the treatment, COVID secure premises and personality soon showed me I’d made the right choice. The combination of hands on sessions and exercises eased my frozen shoulder quickly allowing me to get back to day to day life without the need for strong painkillers.

I visited Browns physiotherapy earlier this year after starting to suffer pain in my back and neck as a result of bad posture/working from home during the pandemic. I had an initial appointment with Donal and almost immediately he was able to understand the root cause of the problem and make suggestions of how to treat it. After 5-6 sessions I saw a massive improvement and (fingers crossed) things still seem to be good a couple of months on.I’d highly recommend Donal. He really puts you at ease and offers a friendly service. The practice is easy to find and you always have confidence that it is clean etc and everything is being done to follow current guidelines.

I had a fall in the garden in October of 2020. Couldn't get to see an NHS physio due to covid. So I looked at Browns Physiotherapy. Donal was just great. I explained the constant pain I was in, booked an initial appointment and never looked back. He was honest, and very informative, and the physio has worked. He left no stone unturned. I can't thank him enough. If I could rate six stars, I would !!!Thank you so much Donal....

After having my 2nd baby I was suffering with back pain after no support from my gp a family member suggested browns physiotherapy so I completed the short form online and donal contacted me. after a short conversation he invited me into the practice where he discussed my pain in more detail and he suggested a 6 week treatment plan he explained in detail where my pain was coming from and I followed all of his advice which has really helped me. it's now just a case of following some of his advice to maintain being pain free. Donal is only a phone call away should I have another flare up I would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody who is suffering

Excellent treatment.I started in the first lockdown with pain and suffered with sciatica from working at home sitting on my dining room chair. After getting a better chair and the correct set up, unfortunately the pain was still present and got worse to the point I would cry some days whilst sat working. I went months until I couldn’t stand the pain anymore. From searching for local Physiotherapy as I couldn’t bear to Added to any waiting lists, I came across browns physio. Donal listened and offered a full explanation, very friendly, approachable and professional. I know Physiotherapy is not cheap and was very pleased and Grateful that I could set up a monthly payment plan but still receive the treatment I needed on a weekly basis, if I wouldn’t of been able to do this I would not of been able to receive the help I so needed.It is my last session tomorrow with Donal and so I thank him for the ‘no pain no gain’ as I said in my sessions! 😂Would highly recommend going to browns Physiotherapy.Kerry casey.

Having suffered with a bad back for approximately 8 years and tried different therapies including both physiotherapy (2 others) and chiropractor treatments, I felt that I had reached a point of no return. The pain I was suffering kept me awake at night and was limiting the amount of sport / fitness I could play / do as the pain was becoming unbearable (which I had been managing with painkillers before and after any activity for at least the last 2 years). I had accepted that I would have a bad back forever and thought I needed a way to simply manage the pain better.I decided to contact Browns for advice. From the first minute Donal was brilliant, completing a full diagnosis and identifying the areas he believed were causing the problem. I tried a few sessions on a 'pay-as-you-go' initially and started to feel the benefits so signed up for a full programme. Donal assured me that he would fix the problem but because of the long-standing nature, it would not be a quick fix. I kept the faith even without full acceptance that he could make it better as I had suffered for so long. Over time things started to get better but then I would regress with another part of my body flaring up. Again, Donal reassured me that this was part of the recovery cycle and stayed committed that I would get better. Amazingly after several weeks of treatment the pain subsided, I started to feel normal again! My 'bad back' was actually getting better. The treatment continued and I continued to complete my exercises which he subscribed and the improvement carried on.I can now honestly say that Browns have managed to fix a problem no one else has managed to fix. Am I 100%, no but 90%+ and still improving. My wife no longer needs to hear me moan and my little girl can go on my shoulders for more than 5 mins. All that is left id for the squash courts to reopen so that I can try my new back!I will never use another physio again, I cannot recommend Brown's highly enough. To further highlight my recommendation, my wife who has suffered with a sore foot for over 6 months, limiting her ability to run, has just signed up on a 6 week programme. After the first 2 sessions she is already improving and I have no doubt whatsoever that, like me, a long-standing injury will be fixed by Browns.

I cannot recommend Donal & the service he provides enough...He explains everything simply from probable causes to effective treatment...Donal puts you at ease with his easygoing manner & the relaxed atmosphere helps tremendously...so from being in constant daily pain to 10 sessions later being at least 90-95% better I can't thank Donal enough...& from thinking I may never train hard again to now looking forward to smashing it the gym...brilliant feeling!!

After going another physio for a few weeks and getting nowhere , nhs physio to give me a exercise sheet I looked on the internet and found Browns Physiotherapy I went in all honesty expecting not much after the treatment my other physios before had done I went firstly for a chat which I found Donal really helpful easy to get on with and didn’t want to just rush me out the door .Its not the cheapest in the city but you get what you pay for and Donal after 3 sessions as helped me more and feel better then any other physio in my opinion the best physio without a doubt in the city and a really nice lad I look forward to my next visit to see where this will take me many thanks Donal 👍

My son Seb had applied and been accepted to join the British Army as an infantry soldier and was going to Harrogate. He was due to go in a 6 week period.Whilst training Seb pulled/ tore his left hamstring and had a grade 1 tear.We went to one physio before Donal who gave us bad advice so we took a second opinion and went to see Donal Brown in Festival Park Stoke-on-Trent.Donal was exceptionally friendly and within a few minutes of meeting him Seb and I both realised that he was very knowledgeable and that he would be able to rehab Seb's injury.He explained everything to us in laymans terms and also gave us a projected idea of what to expect in way of progress over the 6 weeks.He was spot on in everything he projected and my son has now made a full recovery. Donal is a very very amiable man, quietly spoken with a good and appropriate sense of humour. He won't thank me for this but he makes a FANTASTIC CUP OF COFFEE so please avail yourselves of this service!I would DEFINITELY recommend Donal to anyone of any age.

At first I didn’t know where to go so I looked online, Browns Physiotherapy popped up and I filled in the survey for a free check up, within an hour Donal had called me to book in my free session, before the sessions I could barely walk a mile without having to crouch or sit down because the pain was that bad, after a few sessions I could tell that it was starting to ease off, so me and a friend booked a hiking holiday and just before my 8th session I climbed the highest mountain in England and all without pain to my back. Donal had also diagnosed flat feet and pointed me in the right direction for orthotics, these along with the sessions and regular exercise have turned me into a new person, Donal is a very pleasant and easy going person and makes you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in the room, if anything crops up in the future I’ll be straight back to him, thank you Donal.

Couldn’t recommend enough! I contacted Donal as I’d been suffering with migraines and neck problems that were caused by anxiety.Although my anxiety wasn’t exactly Donal’s job to fix, he went out of his way to teach me breathing exercises and send me links to use at home when I was struggling.After 6 sessions, I’m rarely getting the migraines and overall, it’s helped with my anxiety A LOT!!Again, couldn’t recommend enough, such a lovely person and very fair/honest with treatment.Thanks Donal!! 🙂

After injuring my hip when running, I decided to go to Browns after the injury didn't clear after months of rest. While I was a bit apprehensive at first, having never been to see a physio before, Donal put me at ease right away. Explaining to me what was wrong and how we were going to fix it. After my 6 sessions, not only am I pain free but running just as fast as I was before my injury! Thanks Donal

Working remotely in lockdown at a desk and a running injury resulted in a very painful hip flexor lasting nine months. After trying other professionals and not getting any relief I found Donal and my search ended!Donal assured me he could fix my problem and six sessions later, he has! Each session lasts about an hour. I received deep massage into the painful ligaments and tendons, was given a few simple exercises to do each week during the course of treatment and now I am pain free. If you’re looking for a friendly, highly skilled and professional physio who provides excellent value for your money, he is your man!

I can highly recommend Browns Physiotherapy. Donal is very knowledgeable and puts you at ease straight away. I was very anxious attending my first appointment but his knowledge, explanation of the treatment, COVID secure premises and personality soon showed me I’d made the right choice. The combination of hands on sessions and exercises eased my frozen shoulder quickly allowing me to get back to day to day life without the need for strong painkillers.

Excellent caring service...I was in absolute agony with lower back pain, I called Browns in tears, where I was given an emergency appointment that day, which I was so grateful of, following my initial assessment, I then had treatment over a short period of timeThe treatment I was given was excellent, and has enabled me to get my life back on track free of pain, which I will be forever grateful for.The treatment rooms were modern and very clean, and COVID secure, and the team are very friendly and helpfulI will certainly be going back to Browns if my pain returns!!Thank you.

I visited Browns physiotherapy earlier this year after starting to suffer pain in my back and neck as a result of bad posture/working from home during the pandemic. I had an initial appointment with Donal and almost immediately he was able to understand the root cause of the problem and make suggestions of how to treat it. After 5-6 sessions I saw a massive improvement and (fingers crossed) things still seem to be good a couple of months on.I’d highly recommend Donal. He really puts you at ease and offers a friendly service. The practice is easy to find and you always have confidence that it is clean etc and everything is being done to follow current guidelines.

I had a fall in the garden in October of 2020. Couldn't get to see an NHS physio due to covid. So I looked at Browns Physiotherapy. Donal was just great. I explained the constant pain I was in, booked an initial appointment and never looked back. He was honest, and very informative, and the physio has worked. He left no stone unturned. I can't thank him enough. If I could rate six stars, I would !!!Thank you so much Donal....

After having my 2nd baby I was suffering with back pain after no support from my gp a family member suggested browns physiotherapy so I completed the short form online and donal contacted me. after a short conversation he invited me into the practice where he discussed my pain in more detail and he suggested a 6 week treatment plan he explained in detail where my pain was coming from and I followed all of his advice which has really helped me. it's now just a case of following some of his advice to maintain being pain free. Donal is only a phone call away should I have another flare up I would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody who is suffering

Couldn't have asked for better results!Not only was I fully seen to and was given a speedy recovery from a longterm endless seeming injury, but I was also greeted with the most friendly and welcoming of physiotherapists. Practically life changing!Donal at Browns Physiotherapy is the one you need no doubt!

Excellent treatment.I started in the first lockdown with pain and suffered with sciatica from working at home sitting on my dining room chair. After getting a better chair and the correct set up, unfortunately the pain was still present and got worse to the point I would cry some days whilst sat working. I went months until I couldn’t stand the pain anymore. From searching for local Physiotherapy as I couldn’t bear to Added to any waiting lists, I came across browns physio. Donal listened and offered a full explanation, very friendly, approachable and professional. I know Physiotherapy is not cheap and was very pleased and Grateful that I could set up a monthly payment plan but still receive the treatment I needed on a weekly basis, if I wouldn’t of been able to do this I would not of been able to receive the help I so needed.It is my last session tomorrow with Donal and so I thank him for the ‘no pain no gain’ as I said in my sessions! 😂Would highly recommend going to browns Physiotherapy.Kerry casey.

Sent email to Donal, the reply was in the timescale expected. Very very professional service, made you feel at ease soon as meeting him, the explanation of every thing going on is very reassuring. Would most definitely recommend Brown physiotherapy.

Having suffered with a bad back for approximately 8 years and tried different therapies including both physiotherapy (2 others) and chiropractor treatments, I felt that I had reached a point of no return. The pain I was suffering kept me awake at night and was limiting the amount of sport / fitness I could play / do as the pain was becoming unbearable (which I had been managing with painkillers before and after any activity for at least the last 2 years). I had accepted that I would have a bad back forever and thought I needed a way to simply manage the pain better.I decided to contact Browns for advice. From the first minute Donal was brilliant, completing a full diagnosis and identifying the areas he believed were causing the problem. I tried a few sessions on a 'pay-as-you-go' initially and started to feel the benefits so signed up for a full programme. Donal assured me that he would fix the problem but because of the long-standing nature, it would not be a quick fix. I kept the faith even without full acceptance that he could make it better as I had suffered for so long. Over time things started to get better but then I would regress with another part of my body flaring up. Again, Donal reassured me that this was part of the recovery cycle and stayed committed that I would get better. Amazingly after several weeks of treatment the pain subsided, I started to feel normal again! My 'bad back' was actually getting better. The treatment continued and I continued to complete my exercises which he subscribed and the improvement carried on.I can now honestly say that Browns have managed to fix a problem no one else has managed to fix. Am I 100%, no but 90%+ and still improving. My wife no longer needs to hear me moan and my little girl can go on my shoulders for more than 5 mins. All that is left id for the squash courts to reopen so that I can try my new back!I will never use another physio again, I cannot recommend Brown's highly enough. To further highlight my recommendation, my wife who has suffered with a sore foot for over 6 months, limiting her ability to run, has just signed up on a 6 week programme. After the first 2 sessions she is already improving and I have no doubt whatsoever that, like me, a long-standing injury will be fixed by Browns.

I cannot recommend Donal & the service he provides enough...He explains everything simply from probable causes to effective treatment...Donal puts you at ease with his easygoing manner & the relaxed atmosphere helps tremendously...so from being in constant daily pain to 10 sessions later being at least 90-95% better I can't thank Donal enough...& from thinking I may never train hard again to now looking forward to smashing it the gym...brilliant feeling!!

After going another physio for a few weeks and getting nowhere , nhs physio to give me a exercise sheet I looked on the internet and found Browns Physiotherapy I went in all honesty expecting not much after the treatment my other physios before had done I went firstly for a chat which I found Donal really helpful easy to get on with and didn’t want to just rush me out the door .Its not the cheapest in the city but you get what you pay for and Donal after 3 sessions as helped me more and feel better then any other physio in my opinion the best physio without a doubt in the city and a really nice lad I look forward to my next visit to see where this will take me many thanks Donal 👍

My son Seb had applied and been accepted to join the British Army as an infantry soldier and was going to Harrogate. He was due to go in a 6 week period.Whilst training Seb pulled/ tore his left hamstring and had a grade 1 tear.We went to one physio before Donal who gave us bad advice so we took a second opinion and went to see Donal Brown in Festival Park Stoke-on-Trent.Donal was exceptionally friendly and within a few minutes of meeting him Seb and I both realised that he was very knowledgeable and that he would be able to rehab Seb's injury.He explained everything to us in laymans terms and also gave us a projected idea of what to expect in way of progress over the 6 weeks.He was spot on in everything he projected and my son has now made a full recovery. Donal is a very very amiable man, quietly spoken with a good and appropriate sense of humour. He won't thank me for this but he makes a FANTASTIC CUP OF COFFEE so please avail yourselves of this service!I would DEFINITELY recommend Donal to anyone of any age.

At first I didn’t know where to go so I looked online, Browns Physiotherapy popped up and I filled in the survey for a free check up, within an hour Donal had called me to book in my free session, before the sessions I could barely walk a mile without having to crouch or sit down because the pain was that bad, after a few sessions I could tell that it was starting to ease off, so me and a friend booked a hiking holiday and just before my 8th session I climbed the highest mountain in England and all without pain to my back. Donal had also diagnosed flat feet and pointed me in the right direction for orthotics, these along with the sessions and regular exercise have turned me into a new person, Donal is a very pleasant and easy going person and makes you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in the room, if anything crops up in the future I’ll be straight back to him, thank you Donal.

Was really impressed with the whole experience. Felt absolutely safe with all current guidelines followed to a T. Only needed 3 sessions for what was an real pain in the neck quite literally 🙃. The compassion and advise given by Donal was a godsend and helped me on my road to recovery and enabled me to get back to running and restore my sanity. Absolutely 💯 recommend.

It has not been a quick fix in my case but the combination of hands on treatment and exercises has relieved a back problem I've had for almost 20 years. I cannot recommend Browns Physiotherapy highly enough.
