Did you know up to 80 percent of adults will experience back pain? Spine problems are an inconvenience that can keep us from our favorite activities and are a leading cause of missed workdays and disability. Chiropractic care is an effective way to relieve the common symptoms of back pain, so you can lead a normal and healthy lifestyle.

Adjustments for Back Pain

According to the American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society, spinal manipulation is a preferred treatment method for back pain. If you are unable to walk or move properly, chiropractic can help improve physical function.

Using a controlled amount of pressure, specific hand movements stretch restricted spinal joints, while relaxing the surrounding muscles. A small thrust or “adjustment” realigns the bones to make them straighter and improve joint mobility.

Common Conditions We Treat

Our team of chiropractors are very successful at relieving neck, mid-back and lower back pain. There are many causes of this discomfort, including muscle, tendon or ligament sprains and strains, undue stress on the body and sudden injury. Some of the ailments we treat are:

  • Pinched nerve, which results from the spine narrowing
  • Disc bulge or herniation, or damage to the outer edges of the discs between vertebrae
  • Degenerative arthritis, the gradual breakdown of cartilage and bone

Lower & Middle Back Pain

The lumbar spine connects our upper and lower bodies. It allows us to twist, turn and bend but endures much stress from daily activity. There is a curve in the small of the lower back that provides structural support and stability, called the lumbar lordosis. Over time, pressure on this curve can lead to back pain which unfortunately, is commonly managed with muscle relaxers, over-the-counter medication and steroid injections. Chiropractic care uses spinal manipulation to correct the disturbance in your lumbar lordosis. Our doctors can also suggest lifestyle changes that complement our in-office treatment plans.

The connection between the cervical spine (upper back) and the lumbar spine is called the thoracic spine. Twelve vertebrae run from the base of the neck down to the abdomen. The middle back is the strongest and most stable region of the spine, protecting our organs and nervous system, and helping us stand tall. Common causes of mid-back pain include injury, overuse, degeneration and other forms of trauma. Chiropractic aims to realign the spinal bones where they attach to the thoracic vertebrae.

Treatment of Subluxation

The term “subluxation” refers to a misalignment of the vertebral column, or backbone. It is a leading cause of back and neck pain that can lead to nerve irritation, a serious medical concern. The spine and central nervous system work together to keep the body functioning properly. When the spine becomes compromised, the nervous system cannot function properly. The nerves that exit the spine control every single cell and organ system (i.e. heart, lungs, stomach, colon, reproductive and immune systems). The goal of regular chiropractic adjustments is to maintain the integrity of the body’s core systems.

"I'm a very active individual and lower back pain was getting in the way of activities I love. While my back is still a work in progress, the time spent with Dr. D has been well worth it. I just ran 2 marathons in 2 weeks and these sessions helped me run these races with no back pain."

"I started adjustments for neck, back, and tailbone pain and at the end of the 10 weeks the pain was completely gone. Dr. Wade is kind, funny, and very good at what he does. He brings positive energy into the office every single day and is in a good mood 100% of the time. During each session, he gave me tips on faster healing and lifestyle changes I could make to help in the future."

"I came to see Dr. D after both my parents had been coming for quite some time and I began to experience neck pain. All of my visits have been in the midst of COVID-19, something that has turned a lot of places into a frenzy. But instead when coming here it was the opposite. Everything has gone smoothly and I’ve felt safe the entire time. I love coming in and seeing Brooke & Brittany who are always smiling and happy to help. Dr. D helps walk you through everything he is doing so you feel comfortable and are learning as you get adjusted. I would recommend them 100x over."

"I had been suffering from hip and leg pain for about year when a respected yoga instructor recommended Dr. D. I attended a Monday night seminar to check the place out and promptly overcame my skepticism. Dr. DeFrancesco is knowledgeable, caring and professional with an office staff that supports his philosophy. This is a state of the art facility providing first class health care. Dr. D has been a true partner in my healing process."
