Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints—and one of the most common reasons for visiting the doctor.
The most common approaches typically include x-rays, MRI exams, and CT scans, prescription medication, and even injections to numb the pain. But sadly, these methods rarely detect or treat the real cause of low back pain. Why?
Countless studies have actually found little correlation between x-ray and MRI findings and the actual level of pain reported by patients. It’s imperative to go beyond the typical scans and test results to uncover what’s really causing your low back pain. That’s exactly what we do.
Observing the way your body moves can be much more relevant than observing your bones on an x-ray. You may have detrimental compensation patterns that aren’t obvious to anyone but an expert. A dropped arch in your foot or loss of mobility in the middle back, for example, can be hidden culprits of lower back pain.
The first step in resolving your pain is coming in for an initial evaluation. Your in-depth, comprehensive assessment allows us to evaluate your body from head to toe—not just the area that’s in pain. That’s how we get to the real root of the problem.
Our advanced technology tests your muscle function and body movement, measures your posture, and identifies any faulty movement patterns that exist. Once we locate the source of your pain, we customize a corrective care plan based on our exam findings.
From there, our team works together to deliver the comprehensive services—massage therapy, corrective exercise training, education, and chiropractic adjustments—you need to restore and maintain your best body possible.
The spine is made of 24 separate bones—or vertebrae—that can tighten and get “stuck” as a result of injuries, bad posture, and even stress.
Just as your foot would swell up in pain after walking around too long in a tight shoe, a stuck vertebrae can get increasingly inflamed over time, often resulting in severe pain.
Left untreated, that inflammation can then transfer to different areas of the body and wreak havoc far beyond the original site of pain or injury.
