How To Eliminate Lifting-Related Pain Without Medications, Surgery, Or Skipping Your Workouts!

One day you’re out on your usual run, or you’re in the gym doing a set, and then all of a sudden you get hit with what feels like a lightning bolt of pain. You think to yourself “Oh man, this really hurts, but I’m sure it’ll feel better by tomorrow.”

You go to bed later that night, only to wake up the next morning, but the pain is still there. It continues to bug you for several weeks, and now you can barely lift without experiencing the pain.

Naturally, you go to the doctor’s office and they tell you to ice it and rest, and to stop weightlifting because it’s “bad for your body,” and they might even give you some anti-inflammatories and pain medication. Even though you don’t want to stop lifting, you do it because it’s what they recommended.

Eventually you start to feel a little better, so you feel like you’re ready to start training and lifting again. Unfortunately, once you start to get back into it, the pain suddenly starts again, and you’re left frustrated and unsure of what to do.

This Is The Vicious Cycle That Many People Find Themselves On.

You’re in a lot of pain so you see a healthcare provider and take their advice to rest it and stop training, and you start to feel better. Unfortunately, you may have lost some strength, muscle mass, conditioning etc., and you haven’t done anything to truly resolve what’s going on in your body. Once it starts to feel better, you try to start weightlifting again, only for the pain to return, and the cycle starts all over again. This is something that so many of our clients have experienced before they have come to see us.

How Are We Different?

What our clients find is that when they come to see us, they actually get a customized plan that helps get them feeling better and stronger at the same time. Because of this, when their pain is resolved and they return to their normal training, they are able to do so without their pain coming back.

5/5
From Terrible Back Pain to Squats & Deadlifts Pain Free
“Ben was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He gave me exercises that helped me recover from a nasty reoccurring lower back issue that was keeping me out of the gym. The exercises and advice he gave me got me back on track in under two months and feeling great. This guy really knows what he is talking about! Truly the best physical therapy in Oakland!”

5/5
From Previously Failed PT to Back to Weightlifting
“I have had a great experience working with Colin. I had been working with another physical therapist on my back pain for about a year with little progress. I finally came to see Colin and I couldn’t be more thankful that I did. Within a couple months my back pain is 99% gone and I am now able to get back to all the active things I want to do with no restrictions (Weightlifting, crossfit, gymnastics, trail running, yoga).
