If you’ve got mystery pain – it’s very tempting to think that it’s nothing, that it will go away on its own. Or, you pass it off as having just “slept awkwardly”, or that it’s just a “spasm” or a bit of stiffness that everyone your age suffers from…
There’s no obvious reason why it happened, but it doesn’t seem to be going away!
If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone. We hear this type of thing all the time! In fact, mystery pain is a common problem that we see at our physical therapy clinic in Cranston, RI. And when it comes to living with mystery pain, everyone we see wants to know:
Most people think that when they get Mystery Pain, it’s just going to go away on its own.
That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, it’ll be as if back pain never happened…But then 6 months later you’re still living with mystery pain…often even worse than it was when it came on.
Another scenario we see all the time in our physical therapy clinic is when people go to the doctors, and the doctor tells them to rest, ”try these painkillers”, and told they need to “get an MRI.”
But this is rarely ever the best advice and often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the doctor again because it hasn’t gotten any better. Told they have some scary findings (which may in return actually be NORMAL findings). Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills and advised MORE rest or an injection as their only option. This is madness and explains why so many people are continuing to suffer from chronic mystery pain.
Why else does mystery pain last so long? Well, it’s easy to get confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. There are lots of people out there who are happy to dispense advice – but not all of it is credible.
Maybe you think your mystery pain was caused by doing something – like lifting or sleeping awkwardly – but really it was caused by years and years of poor posture that caused the muscles in your lower back to become weak and the lifting of the awkward sleeping was just the EFFECT of that.
If you don’t know what you’re doing – mystery pain is very confusing and because of this, many people just end up accepting it as “part of life” – as if it’s normal, and “just the way it is.”

It was last year and we were hiking around Mount Hood and I’m going, like, “thank you, Jessica.” I scream it in the woods because it’s like, if I hadn’t met her, I would never, I mean, so many things I can do now that if I didn’t find her and do the things that she’s taught me to do, I wouldn’t be doing the things when I had a place like that when I’m at the top of a mountain, having lunch with my granddaughter and I go like, “wow, I never thought in 2016 at 71, I’d be doing this.
