Stop chasing pain and address function.

If you exercise a dysfunctional joint you create greater dysfunction.

If you exercise a functional joint you create greater function.

You are unable to create stability over poor mobility.

Mobility is the first step in neuromusculo skeletal rehab.

The Thoracic spine is often the first step in creating mobility

Stability consist of inner core, outer core and posture.

The beginning of the dysfunctional process starts with postural distortions.

Most Neuro musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction results from the failure of adaptation, where self-regulation compensation mechanisms reach a point of exhaustion, so that de-compensation eventuates.

Stand erect, move, feel and be well.

Remember mobility, stability and posture are the keys to function.

Back Pain Facts

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.1

A few interesting facts about back pain:

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.5

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.6

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) urges you to make an informed choice about your back care.
