Core Beliefs Of Durango’s Leading Back Pain Expert

Back pain and sciatica can be treated naturally without painkillers, injections or surgery, and these are the core beliefs that my team and I follow with every patient that can get you back to pain-free exercise, an uninterrupted night’s sleep, and being able to enjoy an active life.


BELIEF #1 – Medication-Free Pain Relief

For many, the belief is that pain relief comes in the form of medication. This is a band-aid solution to the problem that you are experiencing when it comes to back pain. Medication can cause symptoms to occur, don’t actually solve the problem that is causing you problems, and we often see patients in our clinic that have taken medication for years with no relief to their pain.

Physical therapy helps you identify the problem that is causing you have pain, works to treat the specific areas that need attention, and we are able to give you a plan that sets you up to avoid and prevent episodes of pain in the future.

At Tomsic Physical Therapy, we are able to give you the information and care you need in order to relieve and avoid back pain naturally. Our patients have been able to move away from medication and into a more natural way of dealing with back pain.


BELIEF #2 – Back Pain Sufferers Deserve The Right To Chose

People typically get pushed down a particular path when it comes to treatment. Back pain is frustrating and it can be an issue that last for a prolonged period of time, especially if the problem is not treated and treated correctly.

Our approach at Tomsic Physical Therapy is drastically different than ones that you have experienced before. We listen to our patients. We often hear that our patients have waited weeks in order to get treatment because they have been trying to see a specialist, they have been referred multiple times to different people, and there just isn’t availability on the schedule to see their primary physician. With back pain, you just don’t have that time.

Research has shown that if you do not get treatment in the couple of weeks that you have been suffering from back pain, then the problem is almost certain to become chronic pain and you will continue to struggle with that same pain for years to come. We are different because we understand the urgency in which to treat back pain.


BELIEF #3 – We Should Be Able To Enjoy Our Lives

Back pain and sciatica should not stop us from enjoying life. Back pain can be debilitating and can keep you from enjoying even the simple things in life such as walking, playing with grandchildren, and staying active. It is frustrating and we understand that it can feel that there aren’t answers to the problems you are dealing with because of he pain you are experiencing.

In Durango, being active and enjoying the outdoors is a big part of our lives. I, myself, like to walk, hike, and bike through the mountains in Durango. So, I understand the importance of a healthy back. When I have dealt with back pain in the past, it was frustrating, but I know with the proper care I can get back to the life I love if I take the time to treat the issue and ensure I can prevent it in the future. That is how physical therapy has helped me stay active and loving life, pain-free.


BELIEF #4 – We Treat Back Pain Sufferers Like People, Not Numbers

Unlike most places that you have experienced in the past, we care a lot about our patients. At many clinics and offices in the area, you are nothing but number to them. The care you receive at these places is going to feel cold, impersonal, and you will feel like you weren’t listened to because they got you in and out as quickly as possible to get ready for their next patient.

We are the opposite at Tomsic Physical Therapy. We want to hear your story. Our team prides itself in the ability to connect with our patients. We want you to tell us about the difficulties you are having in life because of your pain. We want to know what you enjoy doing and how to best treat you to get you back to the life you want to live. That is what makes us different.
