Back Pain & Sciatica

If you have lower back pain or sciatica – at some point you have probably thought it’s nothing, that it will go away on its own. Or, you believe it’s a normal part of aging…  that you just slept awkwardly, or that it’s just a spasm or stiffness that everyone your age suffers from... 

You may be asking yourself: “Why won’t the pain go away?”  Or worse, assume that there is no hope, that you will have to live with the pain and limit what you want to do forever. 

If you have been to a Doctor, chances are you were prescribed medication and instructed to rest.  Rarely is this the best treatment option and most likely you end up back at the Doctor’s office after 6 weeks of suffering.  Worse, you end getting prescribed stronger medication and referred for expensive testing, continuing to suffer while you wait for answers...    

If this describes you, you’re not alone - we hear this all the time. In fact, Lower Back Pain and Sciatica is the most common problem that we see at Elite Physical Therapy. 

While there are a lot of treatment options available, many of these only address the symptoms and don’t target the actual cause of your pain or handle it for the long term.

Most treatments fail because they are not tailored to your body and the root cause of your symptoms.  Our Physical Therapists understand the same symptoms in different people can be caused by completely different problems.  Instead of protocols that everyone needs to fit into, we tailor a solution to fit your individual need.

    I was previously diagnosed with TMJ. This turned out to be TMJ plus severe tightening of various muscle groups in the upper extremity, causing severe and uncontrollable pain. I received very successful PT treatment. But one year later, the condition returned. The former therapist was unavailable but knew that Mrs. Leslie Ricketts of Elite had experience with this condition. Just finishing some ten sessions with Mrs. Ricketts, the condition is again alleviated. I was somewhat apprehensive after four sessions. However, success started to appear and all is now under control. Mrs. Ricketts taught me several exercises that may prevent the return of pain. If not, Elite and Mrs. Ricketts will be contacted. Needless to say, I am well pleased!

    I recently had two months of PT with Michael Hauber @ Elite PT. i don't know if it makes sense to say I had a good time whenever I came for an appointment, as I came because of discomfort (pain). Karen, Tina & Kim always met me with a smile & genuine welcome. They each were equally kind & efficient on the phone. Michael was always pleasant & had an obvious interest in making sure i learned something & felt better after our appointment. He stands out in my experience with PT over the years as the most professional, knowledgeable, invested, kind & gentle practioner with whom i've ever worked. His competence made my time @ Elite always beneficial. His exercise assignments continue to assist my recovery. I'll miss his 'hands on' expertise. Thank You, Elite.
