Have You Been Searching For A “Chronic Low Back Pain Specialist” In New Paltz or Highland, NY?

"Have you tried everything to find relief for your back pain, but feel let down?"

Don’t sacrifice the lifestyle you desire over problems that can be fixed.

A Message From Chronic Low Back Pain Expert Dr. Roland Alley, Owner of Gunks Physical Therapy:

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then rest assured, You Are In The Right Place!

Many people suffer unnecessarily with chronic low back pain because they’re often told…

The truth about chronic low back pain is:

"We Help People Suffering With Back Pain Get Back To An Active Lifestyle And Teach Them How To Keep Their Pain From Coming Back... All Without Unnecessary Surgery Or Procedures"

It can be very confusing to decide exactly what you should do if you have chronic low back pain. You’ve likely heard a lot of well-intentioned advice or options such as…

It’s overwhelming to make a decision when there are so many options available. You may ask yourself, “what will happen if I make the wrong choice?”

It’s normal to feel stuck when trying to make a decision on what to do about your chronic low back pain. 

You might go days, months, or even years without taking action. This indecision just prolongs your pain and keeps you from the life you desire. We understand your concerns and we’re here to help you take that first step in getting the relief you need!

When It Comes To Chronic Low Back Pain Treatment…

Getting the least-invasive treatment necessary is VITAL to addressing your back pain and to keep it from constantly returning. We want to teach you to be in charge of your condition, and when appropriate, to be able to opt out of surgery and prescription painkillers.

To do that, you’ll need a provider who will spend the time with you to figure out WHY and HOW your condition continues to cause you pain. That’s when you can achieve a LASTING solution to your problems.

“I have had chronic back pain for most of my life. I have seen many Physical Therapists and none were able to figure out exactly what the problem was until I went to Gunks Physical Therapy. Roland is amazing. Through his guidance, hands on work, and exercise routine I am free of back pain and can even run again which I never thought I would be able to return to."

At Gunks Physical Therapy we’ve created a 3 step process for chronic low back pain treatment to make sure it doesn’t come back again.

Step #1 - We Want To Listen To Your Story

We know the medical system can be frustrating. Sometimes you have to wait weeks or even months for an appointment, only to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “what just happened?”

Unfortunately many clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your clinician likely doesn’t have time to see you for multiple concerns or help you in all the areas you’re worried about.

This is why our first step is to listen to your story.

After working with a lot of people who struggle with back pain, we know that no two persons are alike. Each one has a different body, a different history, and a different type of pain. Whether your pain is aching or sharp, we want to understand it and help solve it.

That is why our first step is to have an open conversation with you and to give you time to tell your chronic low back pain story, so we can have a full picture of what’s going on. We want to not only understand how your back pain  started, but also how it’s impacting your life right now.

Step #2 - Find Out WHY Your Chronic Low Back Pain Started

You might have a diagnosis or medical term for what’s going on with your body. Maybe your doctor gave it to you, maybe tests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.

You’ve probably been told that your only choices were to rest, take pain medication, or have surgery.

Sometimes those approaches will bring temporary relief, but they’re unlikely to address the cause of the problem or why it continues to provoke your pain and limit your activity.

Everyone’s pain is different. Most people will benefit from a customized approach that takes into account your specific anatomy, body type, activity level, goals, and medical history.

Our goal at Gunks Physical Therapy is to work together with you to address the root causes of your pain, so that you can achieve durable, long-lasting results and return to the activities you love to do.

We understand that you might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is the right treatment for your chronic back pain. If that’s you, feel free to give us a call below.

We’d love to talk about your concerns and see if we’re the best fit for you!
