Back pain can hinder your day-to-day activities. Left untreated, it can even lead to long-term joint, spine and nerve damage. As one of the most common physical complaints, over 80 percent of the U.S. population will suffer from it at some point in their lifetime. The pain itself can hinder your ability to reach, lean, kneel, lift or bend. It can also hinder your time spent with friends and family. Direct pain aside, minor aches and cramps associated with a back pain problem can make you irritable—ruining your good time. What Causes Back Pain? A few things cause back pain. The American Physical Therapy Association covers each of these, but the following are leading causes: • Spinal and core muscle weaknesses • Bad posture companies applied for this year’s ranking, and those that rose to the top reveal the latest trends as well as the companies that continue to evolve to keep going strong year after year. FYZICAL Palm Beach has ranked #33 this year!

• Spinal muscle and tissue damage • Improper lifting form • Limited hip, spine and thigh muscle flexibility • Bad abdominal, pelvic and back muscle coordination

Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t seek treatment when back pain arises. Before they know it, they have a big problem. They might assume nothing—except for medication—can solve their back pain problem. Medication might mask the pain, but it won’t cure the

problem’s root cause. Back Pain Solutions

You’re in luck: Back pain can be cured! The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke covers a number of back pain remedies. These include the use of strength exercise, physical therapy and medication. Where medication is considered, anti-inflammatory drugs, analgesic medications and counter-irritants are the most popular. Before you can treat your back pain, however, you need to know why it started. Whether you’ve tweaked a muscle or have a deeper injury, a spine specialist can help.

Our mission is to prevent needless suffering & do all in our power to help people flourish.



A little prevention goes a long way. If you want to avoid future back pain, you can make sure you’re being good to your back. Lift Properly You pick things up constantly. Even if you’re lifting something light, make sure you’re facing the object. Squat, keeping your spine straight. Lift with your leg muscles, as this will reduce the pressure placed on your spine. Use Good Posture When you’re standing, imagine a string is attached to the top of your head—lifting you up. This will keep your hips, spine, shoulders and neck aligned. If you’re sitting, don’t slouch. Use Strength Training Your body has hundreds of muscles. These muscles protect and control your spine. By lifting weights, running and swimming, you can keep them strong. Train your core muscles. In doing so, you’ll easily control quick, lifting movements. It never hurts to visit a physical therapist, either. Get regular check- ups, and make sure your body is in good condition. If you have a history of back injuries, pain or minor aches, don’t hesitate to talk to a professional. You deserve a pain-free life, and your back will thank you.

INGREDIENTS •1 cup walnuts, or nuts of choice

•1 1/3 cup pitted dates* •1 tsp pure vanilla extract •3-4 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder •1/8 tsp salt (optional) •mini chocolate chips (optional)


•chia seeds or shredded coconut (optional)


DIRECTIONS Blend all ingredients in a food processor (or halve the recipe and use a single serve blender or mini chopper). When making a full recipe, a food processor is preferred over a blender as ingredients process more evenly and the results are less sticky. Once blended, transfer the dough to a sandwich bag and smoosh into one big ball. Break off pieces and roll into smaller separate balls. Dip in melted chocolate or roll in cocoa powder or shredded coconut or coconut flour. Alternatively, you can form bars or evenly roll out the dough and cut into shapes with cookie cutters! *Tip: If your pitted dates are super hard, just soak them in boiling water for a half hour.

“After four weeks, my back feels stronger!” “I was introduced to FYZICAL Therapy after my recent back surgery. My lower back felt weak, my hamstrings were tight and I still was experiencing some post-surgery pain. Joe set up a therapy plan for me that was perfect. And Kellie, Lucy and Brett followed and enhanced that plan over the next few weeks. After two weeks, I had no more pain. After four weeks, my back feels stronger, my hamstrings looser and I have practiced the proper method for lifting (which caused my back problems in the first place) and stretching when I do feel tight or need some relief. This has been a tremendous experience for me. The experts mentioned above REALLY care for those they are treating, and the results have been fantastic. I would recommend this Center to everyone without hesitation. A wonderful experience!! Thank YOU!” - Gregg H.
