Are you suffering from low back pain? Is it a struggle to get from the couch to the kitchen? Are you just one more sick day away from losing your job?
We understand and can help you.
Low back pain is one of the most common conditions in today’s world. Approximately 80% of the United States population will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. That makes it the third leading cause of visits to the doctor.
There are many causes of low back pain. Muscle stain or fatigue may result from overexertion. Degenerative changes to the lower spine can be the result of many years of repetitive stresses or poor posture. Physical trauma, such as car accidents or slip and fall injuries can damage the muscles, ligaments and discs that support the spine. All of these stresses, however, can result in the most common cause of low back pain…spinal subluxation. A subluxation is when a bone in your spine becomes misaligned and gets stuck. This can pinch, stretch, or otherwise irritate the delicate nerves that your spine is designed to protect. When this happens, it causes problems where that nerve travels to. If that misalignment is in your low back, it frequently results in low back pain.
In their attempt to deal with low back pain, many people seek relief in drugs or surgery. Painkillers only mask the pain temporarily. Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs have been linked to several health conditions, such as stomach ulcers, liver and kidney damage, as well as heart problems. Opioids are highly addictive and potentially deadly. Most cases of low back pain are not candidates for surgery, as the failure rate for low back surgery is 50% for the first surgery and significantly higher for subsequent surgeries.
Trinity Chiropractic offers a drug-free, non-surgical approach to helping you with your low back pain. Dr. David Iszler takes a unique approach to helping you get over your pain. When you meet with Dr. Iszler, he will do an in-depth consultation to find out what is contributing to your low back pain. He will then do a chiropractic examination and take x-rays, if needed, to get to the cause. He will go over his findings in detail so you understand where your pain is coming from and go over his recommended action plan to correct the problem causing your pain so you can get you back to doing what you love to do. If yours is not a chiropractic case, he will help you get to the right place for your condition.
Dr. Iszler is Advanced Proficiency Certified in the newest technique in chiropractic, Torque Release Technique (TRT). Using this technique, he will adjust your spine and correct the misalignments without the uncomfortable twisting and popping that most people associate with chiropractic adjustments. Depending on your condition and situation, other treatment options are available to assist in correcting the underlying cause of your pain. Electrical stimulation can help to decrease pain and muscle tension. Spinal decompression is effective at decompressing the discs, joints and nerves in your low back as well as improving mobility. Our state-of-the-art Class IV deep tissue therapeutic laser helps to decrease pain and inflammation as well as speeding along your body’s natural healing process. Because we want to correct your underlying condition rather than just chasing your pain, we also incorporate spinal and postural rehabilitation into your care. This addresses the structures that support your spine to speed your healing process along and make these changes more permanent.
