Oh My Aching Back!!!!
Dr. Rochelle Bien & Dr. Michael Goldstein
Eighty percent of the population will experience low back pain in their lifetime. Back pain can range from a muscle ache to a shooting, burning or stabbing pain usually aggravated by bending, twisting, lifting, standing or walking. Back pain may come on insidiously over time from overuse or repeated heavy lifting or from a sudden awkward movement.
Chiropractic is very effective for treating the symptoms of low back pain. Since motion is life in the spine when the spinal bones become misaligned and “stuck” out of place the muscles will spasm to guard the area. As proper motion is restored through chiropractic adjustments the spasm will decrease and the symptoms will resolve.
Rob L. presented to our office complaining of pain across his Low Back and radiating into his buttocks. He had been planting flowers and moving heavy stones to define his garden. After taking an history, performing an exam and taking X-Rays it was clear that Rob had changes in his spine that predisposed him to this injury. After a course of chiropractic care not only did Rob’s pain resolve but the underlying cause was corrected as well. Rob was put on a program of care to maintain his correction and continues to be well today.
