Dear Greenville Resident,
Have you been told that your back pain is a result of your past, your age, or your genetics? Have doctors told you that medications, injections, or surgery are your only options? Do you have trouble with prolonged standing, sitting, bending, or walking? Are you worried that your back pain may cause you to miss activities like tennis and golf, hiking, biking, lifting weights, vacations, or spending time with your family and friends?
If you answered 'YES' to any of these questions and you're an active adult between the ages of 40-60+ and have suffered from back pain for more than a few months, please pay attention. You could save yourself time, money, stress, and most importantly, your active lifestyle.
Most active adults don't have debilitating back pain. Instead, they silently suffer from a low-grade but stubborn pain in their back — along with the added worry that one day, the pain will get worse and cause them to forego their active lifestyle.
And they’re probably right. Over time, minor aches and pain can lead to more serious problems. Unfortunately, these otherwise healthy and strong adults are often told to "slow down" and advised to mask their pain with medications.
If you've experienced back pain like this, you have a growing problem that won't go away on its own. However, I have good news for you. Every day, middle-aged people in Greenville are overcoming back pain without surgery through specialized physical therapy programs that restore movement and develop strength. These people are getting back to an active life even if there has been a diagnosis of sciatica, pinched nerves, bulging or slipped discs, stenosis, arthritis, or my favorite, degenerative disc disease.
These programs are incredibly effective, yet often overlooked by doctors and insurance companies who prefer medications, injections, and surgeries. Because there’s so much misinformation about back pain, this month we’ve decided to offer 14 back consultations for people who are interested in overcoming their back pain without surgery and getting back to an active life.
Here's What's included:
The purpose of this appointment is to provide you clarity about your back pain and determine your potential to reclaim an active life. Due to limited availability, only 14 of these sessions will be offered this month.
If your concerns about back pain are causing you stress and you're ready for a path forward that doesn't include medication or invasive treatments, then claim your neck consultation today.
I want you to feel confident playing tennis and golf, hiking, swimming, biking, gardening, lifting weights, going to the beach, and carrying your grandchildren — all without the worry that your back pain will get worse. If you've tried other treatments or traditional physical therapy with limited results, this back consultation will give you hope in an active life again.
Don't let your back health decline further. Request your consultation today.

Our patient satisfaction speaks for itself.
Tim is by far the best PT I have ever worked with. I came to Tim with chronic back and shoulder problems. In just two months, we have made amazing progress that I did not even think was possible. Tim even has me doing movements and exercises that I have not done in years. I look forward to continuing my progress with Tim. There is no better PT in the upstate than Tim. He is very open, honest, and fair.

"If I could give Movement Solutions 10 stars, I would! I’m a 60-year-old grandmother who has been active my entire life, so two years ago when I started having lower back pain, it was devastating. The pain affected ALL areas of my life. After trying to self-treat with exercise, unsuccessfully, I decided to seek the care of an orthopedist and was diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis. He began treatment with injections, that did not work, and also prescribed opioids. The opioids worked, but I didn’t want to go down that road. I wanted to “fix” what was causing the back pain, not mask it with drugs. I knew there had to be an underlying cause of the back pain. After I was told that surgery was probably my next option, I decided to research physical therapists here in town and found Dr. Varghese. I was immediately impressed by the reviews and decided to sign up for the initial consultation. What an impressive Doctor! I became his patient, and after only a few weeks of treatment, my pain level has significantly improved, and I am well on my way to becoming completely pain-free. My strength and mobility have both improved tremendously, and I’m excited to see what continued success I have under his care. Movement Solutions will always be my go-to for physical therapy, and I HIGHLY recommend Movement Solutions for anyone’s physical therapy needs!

"Tim has helped me recover from debilitating low back pain. I have worked with a lot of PTs, I mean a lot. Tim has an effective approach, where he combines overall analysis of your strengths, weaknesses and imbalances, with insightful exercises, stretches and modalities to make real progress. I was in bad shape when I showed up, now I am returning to activities that I thought may never happen again. I would recommend Tim to anyone seeking real recovery and understanding."
