Dear Frustrated Reader With Back or Hip Pain,
❓Are you worried about your pain that keeps you from running, exercising, working in the yard, and living your life and it doesn't go away no matter what you've done and where you've been to help it?
❓Are you frustrated that other treatments like massage, chiropractor, medications, or other PT treatments haven’t worked in the past?
❓Are you having trouble keeping up with the workouts of the day, your running mileage, hiking or biking and are missing out on exercising with your friends or spouse because it hurts?
❓Are you still looking for a long-term solution so you can get back to doing the things you love and live your BIG life?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
You see, many people with back and hip pain suffer unnecessarily with their pain because they’re told…
⚠️ Just “rest it” and it’ll be fine (then months later they’re still suffering…)
⚠️ It’s “normal” to have back and hip pain with at your age.
⚠️ If you take some pills everything will be fine.
⚠️ Stopping what you love to do or following up with your physician AGAIN feels like the only option.
The Truth Is...
✅ Resting it doesn’t change anything. You might get a small temporary relief, but then when you get active again you’ll still be suffering from your pain (I bet you’ve already experienced it!)
✅ It doesn't have to be "normal" to get back pain as you get older!
✅ Pain pills are addicting, dangerous, and can cause a lot of other problems with your body.
✅ Stopping running, CrossFit, and exercising is not the only option. It’s just the only option some health professionals may recommend.

It can be very confusing to decide exactly what you should do if you have back and hip pain. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…
❓ A family member tells you to stop running or exercising if it hurts
❓ A colleague mentions going to a chiropractor or massage therapist
❓ The “experts” on YouTube recommend doing a certain exercise
❓ A friend suggests going to a yoga class instead of running or CrossFit
❓ All while the doctor tells you to "rest it"
It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices. What will happen if you don’t make the right one?
Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.
When It Comes To Solving Something Limiting Like Back and Hip Pain…
You must choose the right provider for YOUR health and YOUR needs. If you don’t, you could end up getting a surgery (when it was unnecessary) or having to rely on medications to do the things you love or just stop exercising together.
Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your back and hip pain AND keeping it from coming back if you put the work in and stay consistent. It's time you take CONTROL of your pain instead of it controlling your life!
To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY the pain happened in the first place. That’s when you can get a more PERMANENT solution to your problems.
At PT Live It we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.
Step #1 - We Want To Listen To Your Story
Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”
Even a lot of physical therapy clinics have to operate this way because of insurance. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.
This is why our first step is to listen to you story.
After working with a lot of people with back and hip pain, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain. Each person also has their own personal goals and things they want to get back to or get stronger doing.
That is why our first step is to give you time to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.
Step #2 - Find Out WHY Your Back or Hip Pain Started
Many people have a diagnosis or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe test rests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.
You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, try a type of medication, or go for further testing.
Sometimes, those things may bring temporarily relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.
Every person’s cause of back and hip pain is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.
Our goal at PT Live It is to find that original cause of your pain and what things continue to aggravate it, so not only does your back and hip pain go away, it STAYS AWAY!
We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a free 20 min Discovery Session phone call. (Yes! That means the first 20 min Discovery call is ON US!)
Our Discovery Sessions are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Discovery Session we’ll discuss what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!
