Low Back Pain 

SYMPTOMS:

  • Tenderness, Pain and Stiffness in the Lower Back 
  • Pain That Radiates into the Buttocks or Legs 
  • Difficulty Standing Erect or Standing in One Position for a Long Time 
  • Weakness and Leg Fatigue While Walking
  • Discomfort While Sitting 

Definition 

The majority of back pain patients have not experienced any trauma, accidents or major injuries prior to the onset of their problem. The cause of most back pain is the cumulative affect of improper sitting posture, poor work habits, incorrect lifting, lack of proper exercise and other lifestyle-related factors. All of these factors cause stress and imbalances on the spine and eventually pain. This is why people often injure their back by just bending over to pick up a piece of paper. The spine was already compromised and just the simple act of bending was enough to set off the problem. When this occurs, the surrounding back muscles go into spasm to protect the stressed or injured tissues of the back. In the US, low back pain is one of the most common conditions and one of the leading causes of physician visits. In fact, at least four out of five adults will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. Thirty-one million Americans have low back pain at any given time. One half of all working Americans admit to having back symptoms each year. One third of all Americans over age 18 had a back problem in the past five years severe enough for them to be a staggering $50 Billion yearly-- and that's just for the more easily identified costs! 

Treatment 

Chiropractic care works on correcting misaligned or out of place vertebrae and can remove the pressure placed on the nerve endings that line the surface of the joint and course through the space between the joints, reducing pain and improving flexibility and function.

    I love coming to work everyday and watching them go through chiropractic care.Our patients always leave our office feeling better than they did when they originally came in. Ever since I started working here at Discover Wellness Center I have been reading and learning as much as I can about how the choices we make affect our well being. Now I am living a healthier life and can pass my knowledge and experience to others so they too can discover wellness!
  • Talia Noble
    There was a time in my life that I really relied on drugs . . . Dr. Anderson taught me that I was not doing anything better for my body by relying on drugs. He explained that I needed to get to the root of the problem by finding what was making me feel bad in the first place. I made the decision that I was going to invest in myself and my healthy. Since then, I've been making healthier choices and living a healthier life. I sleep well, have more energy, and living pain free! The investment was totally worth it!

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
