“Paul… every time I mention my back pain to my GP (3x now), she just tells me to do some exercises.
First time I went she just gave me a sheet with some pictures on and they weren’t terribly easy to follow.
6 months passed and I’ve seen no improvement.
I went back and a different GP referred to me to NHS Physio. But all I got was a phone call and the same kind of exercises, sent through the post, a few days later.
I’m no better off now than when I first started asking around for help, some 8 months ago.
Why don’t exercise work like everyone tells me they should?
Is it me??????!!!!!
Or am I just doing them wrong?

To cut a long story short, exercises:
DO. NOT. WORK.
(Not like you think they do, anyways…)
And why not?
Herein, I’ll explain:
If you’re aged 50 +, or even just before, joints in your back have not only stiffened up, they’ve also weakened.
And it’s likely the exercises you’ve been given or are doing are ones that see you doing something like this:
“Rocking your hips and legs side to side and then lying on your front and leaning backwards pushing up from your elbows and arms… about 10 times per day”.
Am I warm?
If I am, they are WASTING your time.
The secret to long term relief from back pain actually has NOTHING to do with a few “range of motion” exercise.
(The kind you’ve likely been given…)
Tip: The best exercises you should be doing, the ones the GP and NHS Physios “forgot” to give you, are called “core stability” exercises.
They work at making your WHOLE SPINE stronger.
Long term and lasting relief from back pain WILL be found with the help of you doing exercises.
But NOT the ones the GP and NHS Physios have got you doing.
When you come to see us, we’ll show you the right exercises, give you easy to follow instructions and we’ll mix and match different types that make you look AND feel healthy, quick.
And that would make a difference, right?
Getting healthy and ending back pain — it’s not about just doing “any old exercises”…
It’s about doing exercises at the right time and in the right order — *progressed safely* as your improvement allows.
How can a GP do that from a “one off visit” or an NHS physio achieve it after just one phone call?
Exercises are best started AFTER joints in your back have been loosened by *manual re-alignment*, muscles have been relaxed by *deep massage*, and when your pain is EASING.
(Please don’t do them to try and ease pain, because it rarely works…)
Do it this way round that I’m proposing and you will even ENJOY doing exercises, because you’ll not be in any pain doing them.
