Lower Back Pain

Low Back Pain

There are many different causes of lower back pain. Pain in the lower back can be due to repetitive stress on back muscles and joints from poor posture or certain activities, or as the result of more chronic conditions such as arthritis. Back pain can affect children, adults, and seniors. Diagnosing the exact cause of low back pain requires careful attention to the soft tissue structures of the pelvis and lower back, as well as the quality of the movement of the lower and upper extremities.

Failed Back Surgery

Failed back surgery syndrome is characterized by chronic pain post-spinal surgery. Often the patient may not have been the right candidate for spinal surgery in the first place. Other impediments to recovery from back surgery include recurrent or residual disc herniation or a failure to fully correct the structural source of pain. Epidural fibrosis, a build up of scar tissue around the spinal nerves, is common post-surgery. Learn more

Degenerative Joint / Disc Disease

Though they most often develop in the 5th decade of life, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease can also start in the teenage years and affect men and women equally. Chronic in nature, the pain can range from general to disabling and can present itself as low back pain; radiating neck pain; weakness in the legs; and numbness that can come and go, lasting for a few days to a few months.These conditions develop over time and can affect everyone from competitive athletes to more sedentary office workers.

In the cervical spine, the facet joints can degenerate and lead to arthritis. As this area degenerates, new bone is laid down and causes bone spurs. These bone spurs can pinch nerves, limit joint range of motion, and strain supporting neck muscles. Arthritic neck pain is usually worse first thing in the morning and improves as the day goes on. Arthritis pain is often between the shoulder blades and can cause headaches. Learn more

Sacroiliac Pain/Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

With sacroiliac joint dysfunction, careful attention must be paid to the surrounding soft tissue structures of the pelvis and lower back. Issues in these areas can prevent movement within the joint and cause nerve entrapments within the ligaments. Learn more


Treatment of spondylolisthesis is designed to reduce pressure on the lower back. We will reduce the spasm the condition with trigger point therapy, fascial manipulation, and electric muscle stimulation to eliminate the strain on the muscles that support the spine. We use a highly specific approach of Cox Flexion distraction technique to reduce vertebrae pressure. Learn more

Sciatica/Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve or sciatica is characterized by pain down the leg and can continue below the knee. Sciatica pain can be caused by a disc herniation, slipped disc, or muscular imbalances of the spine and hip. Tingling, numbness, or pain in the buttocks and thigh is often misdiagnosed as sciatica.

Lumbar Stenosis/Spinal Stenosis

This lower back pain can occur from the acute strain of lifting a heavy object or as a slowly evolving condition over time. Herniated disc symptoms include deep lower back pain, sharp pain in the buttocks, hamstring pain, and/or leg pain. Once lumbar stenosis has been diagnosed through MRI, the integrity and stability of the spine will be evaluated along with your movement patterns.
