Can Chronic Back Pain Be Cured?

Life with chronic pain is life with too many boundaries. It’s a life with too much thought about what tomorrow will feel like, instead of being able to focus on the moment in front of you. We have had the pleasure of changing that reality for so many people by changing the way they move and interact with the world around them.

How To Cure Chronic Back Pain 

Addressing your biomechanics eliminates chronic pain naturally & permanently. We all have a unique way of moving, standing, breathing and going about our day-to-day lives. Unfortunately, we pick up some bad habits along the way. Our body then tries to compensate for these small habits and it causes poor posture, chronic pain and even emotional/mental alterations. Here at Functional Patterns, we use specialised analysis techniques to find the root cause of your pain. We then help your body to undo any damage caused using individualized movements, and put you on a more functional and pain-free path.

address The system rather than the symptoms

Most professionals see chronic pain as a localised issue. We see chronic pain as a systemic, bio-mechanical issue. 

The entire body is connected system and is continually adapting to make way for our dysfunctions. When we move incorrectly, the muscles, tension, pressure and fascia begin to function a-symmetrically. 

For example, your back pain may be a result of a dysfunction in your leg movement. Or your shoulder pain could be related to your inability to stabilise your core muscles. This is why you must start to address the pain as it relates to the body’s entire structure, rather than one area. 

eliminating pain won't happen overnight. it takes time

It can take a long time for the body to develop chronic pain. With this in mind, it can take time to unwire and correct the dysfunctions that are causing / maintaining the chronic pain. 

This timeline can often exceed your expectations, but rest assured, your practitioner is knowledgeable, experienced to help you move pain-free. 

Each time you train, reflect on each improvement and step you progress towards reducing chronic pain. People often overlook these small steps forward.

we get results and get you out of daily pain

Invest time, effort and money into something that actually works.

Dealing with complex, structural issues requires significant effort to correct. The Functional Patterns methodology is rooted in a ‘first principles’ approach for human biology. Regardless of body type, age, experience or background, practitioners will be teaching you corrective exercises specific to your individual body.  

As a results-based system, Functional Patterns integrates bio-mechanic training / corrective exercise with lifestyle protocols that encourage optimal movement. This is supported by scientific and anecdotal evidence that correcting strength and structural imbalances can lessen risk of injury and improve chronic pain. 

Chronic Back Pain Reduction Case Studies

Let’s take a dive into some Functional Patterns back pain reduction results, testimonials & before-after’s.

scoliosis and Chronic Pain

Before finding Functional Patterns I dealt with chronic thoracic /lumbar back pain due to two L4 fractures and 1 L5 fracture while participating in high-level training and athletic tournaments, which would affect my day-to-day life and activities. I also had a series of other health problems such as extremely compressed knees and hip pain which I saw chiropractors & physiotherapists without finding any long-term relief. Since joining FP I no longer take any form of pain medication and I trust the FP team to resolve my problems 100%

daily back pain - gone



I started having issues with back tightness and back pain that at times stopped me from running, bending, lifting and even sitting comfortably… FP has helped me to understand my body in greater detail…I haven’t had a back spasm in over two years, I’m back to running (shorter distances) and playing basketball, while also enjoying better movement for work and everyday living. There is still a ways to go, but I am confident I’m on the right path.

What training with Functional Patterns Melbourne looks like

phone call to discuss with one of our team

During this call we will discuss a brief history of your condition, goals and availability. From this information, we will match you with one of our Human Biomechanics Specialists. We have extensive experience working with and significantly chronic pain in our clients, see some of our results below.

Initial consultation

First, we assess your static posture and conduct a gait cycle analysis. During the gait cycle analysis, you will walk or run on a treadmill, and the practitioner captures the movement in slow motion to evaluate the biomechanics of their gait.

Static posture pictures help to identify any areas of the body where there may be an imbalance, such as forward head posture, a rounded back, or uneven hips. These imbalances can contribute to pain, injury, and reduced performance.

Note: It is conducive to wear minimal clothing during these assessments to ensure the practitioner can accurately assess the body’s alignment and identify any areas of asymmetry.

what happens after my first session

What now?
Your practitioner will assess your initial gait and static posture images discuss their recommendations specific to you. 

How long will it take to see results?
This is dependant on your body, how committed you are to the lifestyle protocols FP recommend, and how dedicated you are to training. We recommend 1-2 sessions in the gym with a trainer per week alongside practising the exercises at home.

Corrective exercise and dynamic movements
We will progressively build on the techniques you learn through chambers, corrective and dynamic exercises. As gait cycle results are our number one metric to objectively measure your progress, we will often take updated recordings of your gait during these sessions. 

Decrease pain and improve posture
We will work on breaking down the dysfunctions that led to your poor posture and pain while building new, functional patterns within the body. This will help dramatically decrease pain, improve spinal alignment, movement, agility, strength, posture and overall quality of life
