"Feeling Hopeless and Overlooked?."

Ask A PT! Will My Pain Ever Get Better?

Dr. Brad Conder here. I know it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been in the blog, but I’m still kind of coming and going. I still want to get back on here and give some good information if you’re looking around for answers. One of the questions I had this week that I wanted to kind of address was…I get this a lot where people come in, in they may have had some advice before or they’ve been dealing with their condition for a long time and they kind of feel like there’s just no hope. And the question is “Will this ever get better?”

Now, my answer to that usually is, “Yes, it will get better.” You know, because a lot of times you might go to somewhere with a medical opinion and you’ll get answers like “Well, there’s nothing else you can do.” And that’s really not true in a lot of cases, especially like if it’s musculoskeletal cases. Maybe not in all healthcare, but as far as what we deal with, with musculoskeletal, joints, bones, muscles, there is something you can do in most cases, even if there’s arthritis.

The one thing that I wanted to kind of make sure to get through to a couple of clients I had this week is that there is something you can do about most conditions. Every situation is different and it’s okay to kind of make sure to keep checking different resources to be able to get the answers that you’re looking for.

So my advice this week is just don’t give up on looking for the health that you need. Whether it’d be through us or somebody else, I think that’s out there, especially if you’re dealing with some type of pain or condition you’ve been going through for many, many years. I had a lady yesterday that started. She’s had back pain for, I don’t know, years, and never had any help, and she got relief from the first visit.

So there is help for most people. You just need to keep researching. Just don’t give up. And if you have any questions, you can get a hold of us at any time. Email, text, call, and we’d be happy to help. And I’ll be seeing you hopefully again in a couple of weeks. Thanks a lot.
