You Suffering From Back Pain?
If you suffer from back pain,
you join as many as 85 % of all Americans who will be disabled by back
pain at some point in their lives. But thanks to chiropractic, there
is a safe, effective, and scientifically proven answer to back pain!
Each year millions of people
find relief from back pain with chiropractic care. Chiropractic can
help correct the cause of your pain and restore your back to full function,
while preventing other back problems in the future.
The primary weapon against
back pain is a specific form of manipulation called a "spinal adjustment".
When properly administered by a trained professional, chiropractic adjustments
have been scientifically proven to be highly effective in dealing with
pain of spinal origin.
The U.S. government recently
sponsored a study which concluded that most patients with simple backache,
and many others with nerve root pain, should consider manipulative treatment.
The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research found spinal manipulation
to be a "safe and effective" treatment for adults with back

What You Should "Know"
About Your Back
Chances are, you've taken
your back for granted
that is until your back stops working the
way it should!
Understanding how your back works and what you can do to prevent back
problems can help keep your back "trouble-free".
The key to understanding
your back is to understand your spine. Your spine plays an important
role in your body's health. Not only is it involved in every move you
make, it also houses your body's lifeline-your spinal cord.
Your spinal cord extends vertically through the length of your spine
through an opening in each one of your vertebrae. Your central nervous
system, made up of your brain and spinal cord, generates electrical
impulses that control and coordinate every cell, tissue, and system
in your body.
Your nervous system interacts
closely with your musculoskeletal system. Your ability to stand, move,
bend, and twist comes from this complex network made up of nerves, muscles,
ligaments, and bones. Your bones and ligaments provide structural support.
Your muscles control your movement, while your nerves carry electrical
impulses to your muscles.
Proper alignment of your
spine's 24 vertebrae is essential for total health. Unfortunately, daily
wear and tear, such as poor posture, improper lifting, old injuries
that didn't heal properly, or lack of body conditioning can cause your
spine to get out of alignment.
A spinal misalignment is
called a "subluxation". Subluxations cause electrical impulses
traveling along your nervous system to be slowed, lost, or confused.
Muscle spasm, prolonged periods of pain, delayed recovery from injury,
as well as increased chances of permanent damage and degeneration can

By eliminating areas where
your nerve roots may be pinched, stretched or compressed, we can relieve
your back pain
and a whole lot more!
Chiropractic care removes
spinal nerve interference to allow your nervous system to operate the
way is was intended.
Spinal Adjustments can correct
subluxations, allowing your nervous system to function efficiently without
interference, while improving your muscle balance to create a natural
flow of motion. With proper spinal alignment, painful pressure on your
muscles, ligaments, and spinal nerves can be relieved.
It's tempting to reach for
a quick-fix by taking pain-killing drugs when you're in pain. But drugs
only mask the pain; they do not correct the underlying problem. The
goal of chiropractic is to identify the cause and then correct the problem
so sit doesn't recur.
If you've been told that
your need back surgery, take a closer look at your options. Many patients
who have been told they need surgery have corrected their back problems
with chiropractic care!
