Back Pain Relief
Although chiropractors care for more than just back pain, many patients visit chiropractors looking for relief from this pervasive condition. In fact, 31 million Americans experience low-back pain at any given time.
A few interesting facts about back pain:
- One-half of all working Americans admit to having back pain symptoms each year.2
- Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work. In fact, back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections.
- Most cases of back pain are mechanical or non-organic—meaning they are not caused by serious conditions, such as inflammatory arthritis, infection, fracture or cancer.
- Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on back pain—and that’s just for the more easily identified costs.3
- Experts estimate that as many as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in our lives.
What Causes Back Pain?
The back is a complicated structure of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. You can sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which can lead to back pain. While sports injuries or accidents can cause back pain, sometimes the simplest of movements—for example, picking up a pencil from the floor— can have painful results. In addition, arthritis, poor posture, obesity, and psychological stress can cause or complicate back pain. Back pain can also directly result from disease of the internal organs, such as kidney stones, kidney infections, blood clots, or bone loss
Manipulation as a Treatment for Back Problems
Used primarily by Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) for the last century, manipulation has been largely ignored by most others in the health care community until recently. Now, with today’s growing emphasis on treatment and cost effectiveness, manipulation is receiving more widespread attention.
Chiropractic spinal manipulation is a safe and effective spine pain treatment. It reduces pain, decreases medication, rapidly advances physical therapy, and requires very few passive forms of treatment, such as bed rest.
In fact, after an extensive study of all currently available care for low back problems, the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research—a federal government research organization—recommended that low back pain sufferers choose the most conservative care first. And it recommended spinal manipulation as the only safe and effective, drugless form of initial professional treatment for acute low back problems in adults.

Neck Pain Relief
Neck pain can either be mild; sometimes feeling like an annoying and distracting ache or it can be so severe that it is unbearable and incapacitating.
Most instances of neck pain (and stiffness) are minor and commonly caused by something you did. That is, if you keep your head in an awkward position for too long the joints in your neck can “lock” and the neck muscles can become painfully fatigued. You may be one of the many who has “harmlessly” fallen asleep in a chair or in a bed with your head propped up, only to awaken with a painful stiffness. Fortunately, most minor posture-induced neck pain episodes clear up on their own after rest and efforts not to repeat the offending stresses on the neck.
However, it becomes a more serious matter when the pain doesn’t go away after a day or two. Neck pain that lasts for many days or keeps coming back is a signal that something is wrong. Disease, an injury (such as whiplash in an auto accident), a congenital malformation, or progressive degeneration that can come with age, may be responsible for the more significant pain you experience. An expert must determine the underlying causes of such neck pain. Examination, diagnosis and treatment by a specialized doctor of chiropractic can relieve your mind and may quickly relieve your pain.
Who Suffers from Neck Pain?
Almost everyone experiences some sort of neck pain or stiffness at one time or another. Because you are human and walk upright, your head is “balanced” atop your spinal column. If the muscles that support your head are not kept strong and in good condition, the upper part of your spinal column is vulnerable to strains and injuries.
Older people whose joints have been worn by use over time are subject to osteoarthritis (also known as degenerative joint disease or DJD). When this form of arthritis hits your back and neck, you feel it as neck pain that gets worse over time. The pain may radiate into your shoulders and arms, and you may feel numbness or tingling in hands and fingers. Arthritis can also involve symptoms including headaches, dizziness, and even a grating/grinding feeling when you move your head. It is very important for your doctor to examine you to rule out osteoarthritis or identify it and see that it is properly treated.

Up until now there has not been a treatment available which provides a successful answer for pain as result of bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease and failed back surgery.
Spinal Decompression is an FDA cleared device that uses a technique that lowers pressure on the discs in the spine. By decreasing the pressure within the disc, the disc is able to rehydrate, thereby restoring the normal height to the disc and reducing the irritation to the joints and other structures. As the disc is distracted, the tears in the disc are brought into alignment. The result is a functional pain-free spinal joint. The use of the spinal decompression device and protocol creates an environment for a disc that optimizes healing of the disc and the surrounding tissue. The program focuses on long term relief.
Spinal Decompression is the treatment of choice for lower back pain. It’s Non-Invasive and without the Side Effects of Drugs and Surgery.
