A Message From Jeff Nelson, Owner & Founder of Fluid Motion Physiotherapy

Dear Frustrated Reader With Back Pain and Stiffness,
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
Many people with in San Diego suffer unnecessarily with back pain and stiffness because they’re told...
The Truth Is...

“At Fluid Motion Physiotherapy, we help active adults (40+) in the San Diego area stay fit, mobile, and strong so that they can enjoy an active life without having to resort to taking painkillers, getting injections that don’t work, or having an unnecessary surgery.”

It can be very confusing to decide exactly what you should do if you have back pain and stiffness. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…

It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices… what will happen if you don’t make the right one?

Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.

When It Comes to Solving Something Serious Like Back Pain & Stiffness…

You must choose the right provider for your health. If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it was unnecessary) or being dependent on addicting painkillers the rest of your life.

Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your back pain and stiffness and keeping it from ever coming back.

To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY the pain happened in the first place. That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problems.

At Fluid Motion Physiotherapy we’ve created an easy 3 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.

Step #1 - We Want to Listen to Your Story

Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get 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?”

Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.

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

After working with lots of people with back pain and stiffness, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.

That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.

Step #2 - Find Out WHY YOUR Back Pain Started

Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe test rests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.

You could have been told that your only choices are to rest, take pain medication, use special creams, and/or use heat/ice.

Sometimes, those things bring temporarily relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.

Every person’s cause of back pain and stiffness is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.

Our goal at Fluid Motion Physiotherapy is to find that original cause of your pain, so not only does your back pain go away, it STAYS AWAY!

We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a free taster session. (Yes! That means the first session is ON US!)

Our Discovery Telephone Consultations are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the discovery telephone consultation you’ll find out what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!

Step #3 - Get Rid Of The Pain & Keep It From Coming Back

This is when the big transformations occur. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to reach your goals so you’ll be able to play with the grandkids and take walks at the beach, get back to your prior exercise routine without the fear of the back pain and stiffness coming back, and lastly to get back to the “old you” and begin living the pre-injury lifestyle you love.

Our best clients are those who are motivated and ready to win back their healthy lifestyle. (Even if they feel stuck right now!)

Want to know more about our availability and costs before making any commitment to coming in?

You don’t have to sacrifice the lifestyle you desire and the activities you love over problems that can be fixed.

What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About Fluid Motion Physiotherapy in San Diego...

Les, 62, San Diego: Overcame lower back pain.

I can’t say enough about how Jeff and Fluid Motion Physiotherapy have helped me. I had debilitating lower back pain for 6 months after I fell when hiking on vacation. I was bedridden for nearly 4 days and then felt like I was okay. At first I thought I would just give it time or do a Google search on “exercises for lower back pain”, and then after spinning my wheels with no progress I gave up for a few months. I was miserable not being able to do the things I loved…Then I found Fluid Motion Physiotherapy through a co-worker’s recommendation and after the first session I felt so at ease and confident that I’ll be able to be active again and was thinking to myself ‘I wish I’d found them a lot sooner’.

Bill, 68, San Diego: Overcame back pain.

I developed lower back pain about 6 months ago for no apparent reason and had to stop playing pickle-ball and then a few weeks later had to stop golfing as well. I went to my doctor to see about x-rays or a MRI but she just sent me home with 2 different types of pain pills… The pain went away so I decided to go back to golfing, and boy was that a mistake… I couldn’t get out of the bed the next day because my back locked up on me. After 10 sessions with Fluid Motion Physiotherapy I was back playing golf twice a week and pickle-ball once a week. I’m in better shape now at 68 than I was in my 50’s and I owe a lot of it to Jeff and his team helping me everything from my rehab to my sleeping habits.

Chris, 38, San Diego: Overcame herniated disc pain.

I can’t be more appreciative to Jeff and Crew. I had a pretty bad herniated disc along with numbness and tingling from a pinched nerve with intense pain down my leg. I went to numerous physicians and so called “healers” before finding Fluid Motion and never saw any results. Jeff was able to get me straightened out and pointed in the right direction, and his PT produced the results I was looking for!  After a few weeks I’m back to living pain free again. You guys rock!
