Jan joined me for the latest episode of the Get Back with Dombek podcast, and detailed how his career began, his opinions on acupuncture, and why he believes that most people misdiagnose their own pain.
That pain in your lower back has returned. Will you take ibuprofen and power through the day, or make an appointment with your back doctor of choice (FYI No Referral or Prescription* is needed to see a Physical Therapist!)?
As it turns out, your gender is likely to inform which (if any) action you take next. Studies show, women are more likely than men to seek out healthcare.
One of the most common complaints or issues we see at AIDPPT is Low Back issues. Back pain is one of the major factors in reduced productivity in the workplace! It is not just because of people calling in sick but when you are suffering, regardless if the pain is sharp or a dull ache; you are unable to concentrate on the job/task at hand.
