Back Pain

Having back and leg pain can bring life to a standstill.

Having back and leg pain can bring life to a standstill.

Pain in any area of your body is a sign that something is wrong. It’s a warning signal, like a signal from a smoke detector.

You might not be able to able to go to work, play with your Grandkids, do household chores or even enjoy your days off.

As much as 80% of the population suffers from back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain is the second most common reason for visits to a doctor’s office!

A fall or accident can be an obvious cause; however, sometimes it’s the simplest moves, like picking up something from the floor or tying your shoes that can have painful results. Stress, obesity and poor posture can aggravate your back pain as well.

Don’t ignore that dull nagging ache, back spasm, sharp pain, occasional stiffness, numbness or tingling anywhere along your spine. Back pain can quickly rob you of quality life and, untreated, can become disabling!

Chiropractic care involves precision spinal adjustments designed to increase the range and quality of joint motion. It’s a proven safe and effective way to prevent and correct back pain.

back pain testimonialhe brain is the master controller of all functions in our body. It directs every muscle, tissue and gland to do every single thing our body is supposed to do – every moment of every day. The brain communicates with the body through the spinal cord, which is where nerves originate and branch out just like roots from a tree. Every muscle, tissue and gland is integrally plugged into what we call the central nervous system. Our life force (nerve flow) travels through this system, providing the body with the ability to function at its optimum level. The spinal column, which protects this core system, must be in proper bio­ mechanical alignment to allow the nerves free and clear access to all corners of the body.

Dr. Miller specializes in finding misalignments (subluxations) in the spine because, no matter how simple or severe they may be, misalignments put pressure on nerves, thus interfering with proper nerve interference will cause your body to function at levels below your optimum.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Isn’t some back pain normal?
    Pain of any kind, at any age, is a sign that something is amiss. Pain is the way your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. Since we can adapt, minor aches and pains are often shrugged off. While they may go away, if the underlying problem remains unattended, the problem may slowly worsen until it becomes more difficult and expensive to resolve.
  • What about muscle relaxers?
    First, chiropractors don’t dispense drugs. We rely on natural methods. When properly applied, ice can have an analgesic effect without the unwanted effects associated with some pain medications.
  • How does chiropractic work?
    Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if the body is working correctly. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues. Specific spinal adjustments are designed to improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.
  • Does insurance pay for chiropractic?
    These days, many policies cover at least a little of the care you’ll need. It’s convenient when an insurance company or some other third party helps pay the bill. But be careful! Don’t allow the profit motives of a huge corporation to make decisions for you. If you sincerely want your health back, we can probably help. Find out how we make chiropractic care affordable for just about anyone.
