Picture this: You’re out on your regular run or in the gym pushing through a set, and suddenly, you’re struck by a bolt of pain. You think, “This hurts, but it’ll probably be gone by tomorrow.” You go to bed, hoping for relief, but the pain lingers. It continues to nag you for weeks, and lifting becomes a painful endeavor.
Naturally, you visit a doctor who advises rest, ice, and perhaps some anti-inflammatories or painkillers. They even suggest you stop weightlifting because it’s “not good for your body.” Reluctantly, you follow their advice, but once you attempt to resume your training, the pain reappears, leaving you frustrated and uncertain about your next move.
You’re in pain, you follow medical advice to rest, and you start feeling better. However, you may lose strength, muscle mass, and conditioning in the process, without truly addressing the root issue. As soon as you attempt to return to weightlifting, the pain resurfaces, and the cycle repeats itself. Many of our clients have experienced this before turning to us.
What our clients discover is that when they come to Austin Manual Therapy Associates, they receive a personalized plan that not only relieves their pain but also makes them stronger. As a result, when they return to their regular training, the pain no longer holds them back.
