Back Pain

Back pain complaints are a very common complaint. One study has listed it as the 5th most common reason for visiting a doctor. Did you know that back pain (or injury) is the second leading reason for missed work in the US today, causing over 100,000,000 (100 million) missed work days a year? On top of that 30 and 60 million dollars are spent annually on back disabilities. Not only do these statistics confirm that back pain is a common problem, but also that many back pain complaints are not effectively treated.

Even though we specialize in internal disorders we are still chiropractors and of course can offer safe, effective and natural treatments to ease your back pain. Whether you have had years of pain or this is the first time, chiropractic care and manual therapies can offer relief. We offer a variety of adjustments and therapies to tailor the treatment to fit the individual. We feature specific chiropractic treatments which specialize in alleviating low back pain, as well as massage services. We can help you get back to normal quickly and with as few adjustments as possible.

Low Back Pain

Low back pain is the most common back pain complaint. It can be caused by a variety of injuries or dysfunctions. Getting to the cause of your back pain is the key to getting you well and staying that way. Most commonly, lower back pains are caused by alterations of normal spinal motion and muscular tension. In addition to traditional adjustments we offer therapeutic massage therapy if you need a little extra care to ease those aching muscles. Our goal is to get you well as quickly as your body allows us to so you can get on with your life without pain.

Herniated or Bulging Discs

A herniated or "slipped" disc in the low back can be a painful and debilitating injury. Most often this occurs with a seemingly minor injury. The classic signs of a disc injury are pain radiating from the back down into the legs and often times numbness in the same area. When this injury first occurs getting around can be difficult. Prompt care is important, because disc injuries are a common reason for back surgeries. However, early treatment can greatly improve your likelihood of a full recovery without surgery.
