Before you make any treatment decisions, it’s important to understand a few key facts about back pain.


Experiencing Back Pain? You’re Not Alone

Did you know that back pain is one of the leading causes of missed work in the United States? In fact, several reports show that back pain accounts for more than 264 million days of lost work each year, which represented two missed days of work for every full-time U.S. employee.

More so than any other condition, back pain is the one that knocks people off their feet, rendering them unable to manage simple things like getting dressed to go to the office, getting the kids ready for school, and even driving a car. Back pain also happens to be the number one cause of disability as it not only interferes with the ability to work but also to participate in ordinary activities, greatly diminishing a person’s quality of life.

Seeking Back Pain Treatment

Many instances of back pain are caused by chronic conditions, like inflammatory arthritis, fractures, cancer, etc. But there are quite a few other causes of back pain that are more mechanical in nature. Chiropractic care can address both problems. The sooner that patients seek the aid of a chiropractor, the faster they can find pain relief.

A chiropractor will often use a combination of adjustments to correct the alignment of the vertebrae, various chiropractic techniques, and develop an at-home exercise plan to correct back pain issues. While there are some types of back pain that cannot be treated with chiropractic care, at least not to the point of curing the pain, most patients will enjoy some improvement, if not a complete improvement, by receiving chiropractic care.

There have been cases when patients were told that only surgery could ease their pain, and yet these same patients have experienced complete reversals through chiropractic treatment. It is always in your best interest to explore non-invasive avenues before choosing surgery.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Clarke is the best in the business!!! He is knowledgeable, thorough, passionate, kind compassionate, and always professional. He worked me into his already busy schedule, when I was having severe vertigo, caused by a pinched nerve in my neck. Dr. Clarke had me back to good in just a few short weeks."

  • "I have had a hard time finding relief for my back pain, I've been a chronic 7 for almost 5-6 years now (on a pain scale from 1 -10). After about 6-7 visits and after 3-4 adjustments, I was amazed to realize I no longer had any back pain. Dr. Clarke was careful about doing adjustments until he saw all my x-rays, which I appreciated, as my mid-back was literally like a 'brick' and I didn't want to get hurt in the process. He is very gentle with the adjustments and I'm still somewhat speechless tha"
