Back Pain

Back pain is a growing epidemic for americans. In fact it’s the most common physical complaint that leads to loss of job and lost job time.

Back pain includes low back pain, middle back pain, and upper back pain. Nerve and muscular problems, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis can result in back pain.

 What Are the Causes of Back Pain?

  • Spinal Stenosis

    Occurs as intervertebral discs lose moisture and volume with age, which decrease the space between your discs. Minor trauma with spinal stenosis can cause inflammation and nerve impingement syndrome, which can produce sciatica without disc rupture.

  • Back Injuries

    Back problems and injuries often occur during recreational activities, sports, work-related, or projects at home.

  • Spinal Disk Problems

     Problems with the spine’s discs play a part in back pain.

  • Spinal Degeneration

    The result of a neglected or undetected vertebral subluxation, injury, or misalignment. Research shows that degeneration can start 10 days to 2 weeks upon acquiring a subluxation. It will progress until it has completely destroyed the disc and fused the spine.

  • Spondylolisthesis

    Is a defect or fracture of one or both wing-shaped parts of a vertebra, can result in vertebrae slipping backward, forward, or over a bone below.

  • Spine Curvature Disorders

     Abnormalities which effect the natural curvatures of the spine are misaligned or exaggerated in certain areas, which happens with lordosis, kyphosis, and scoliosis.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a common type of pain that affects the sciatic nerve, a large nerve which extends from the lower back down the back of each leg.

Depending on the severity, pain can also be felt in the foot or toes. Sciatica typically affects only one side of the body. In most people, sitting makes the pain worse.

Sciatica is caused by irritation of the root(s) of the lower lumbar and lumbosacral spine.

Live Well Chiropractic has successfully treated hundreds of patients suffering from Sciatica pain. Avoid surgery and drugs. Call today to see if we can help.

Additional causes of sciatica include: 

  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

    Narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back.

  • Degenerative Disc Disease

    The breakdown of discs between your vertebrae. Occurs after prolong subluxation.

  • Spondylolisthesis

    A condition in which one vertebra slips forward over another one  .

  • Pregnancy

    The sciatic nerve runs under your uterus to your legs. Pressure on the nerve caused by the developing baby.

Other things that may make your back pain worse include being overweight, not exercising regularly, wearing high heels, or sleeping on a mattress that is too soft. Seek immediate medical attention if you have progressive lower extremity weakness, numbness in the upper thighs, and/or loss of bladder or bowel control.

Dr. Brie is exceptional and really fills the need for chiropractic services for pregnant woman and infants. I have taken my infant son to her, as well as had adjustments myself while pregnant, and feel safe knowing that we are receiving tailored chiropractic care for our needs.

My husband got hurt his back and work and seeing Dr. Brie was the ONLY treatment that provided him relief. After his success I decided to take my athletic son to see Dr. Brie. Since seeing him he has improved greatly and is feeling fantastic. Naturally I decided it was my turn to give treatment I try. I saw Dr. Chad who provided me so much relief to my aching back muscles from every day use and lifting a little one constantly. It was easy to get an appointment and Heather at the front desk is friendly and easy to schedule with. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Brie and Dr. Chad whether it be for an injury or just wellness care. I promise you will not be disappointed!!!!

I love Live Well! I had a headache everyday before I met Dr. Brie! I love their new location it’s homey yet professional, a nice environment. Not that I have children but, it is nice they have a child’s room for them to play. Dr. Brie truly cares about her patients and you’ll see her behind the counter scheduling and taking payments, it’s a true team effort there! I have never had any issues and really feel like more than “just a patient”. I recommend to any and everyone!

I started seeing Dr. Brie for preventive chiropractic care several years ago. I met her at my office when she came in as part of a staff wellness day and she was kind enough to gently point out how much I needed her help (aka, how crooked and tight I was through my neck and spine). Though skeptical, I committed to a full evaluation, and I have been going regularly ever since. Dr. Brie has helped me tremendously with neck pain after a minor car accident, as well as my chronic low back pain. I can't thank her enough! Dr. Brie and Dr. Chad are both wonderful people and practitioners. They are always smiling, professional, and happy to help. I highly recommend them both and will continue to trust them with my care!

Dr. Brie came highly recommended by my prenatal providers at the beginning of my pregnancy and I saw her every week from 10 weeks on. This was my second pregnancy and without a doubt, the chiropractic care made a huge difference this time around. I was more comfortable, slept better, and overall felt healthier. I would also bring my 2 year old to all my appointments and I love how family friendly Dr. Brie and the whole staff is. They do such an amazing job at taking care of the whole family! When my daughter was born, she had a pretty rough colicky period. I started taking her for biweekly adjustments because she was literally a different baby after seeing Dr. Brie. Even other family members noticed the difference in her demeanor. I can't say enough about this practice. It's been a great experience and I love having chiro as apart of my regular health care!

A great friend referred us to Dr. Chad. I was skeptical of taking my 15 year old son to a Chiropractor for knee issues, however he was facing sitting out the main season of Lacrosse (after being sidelined for the fall season) which would have been devastating to him. Dr. Chad does active release therapy and within a couple of sessions the pain was gone and he was running again!! This after 3 years of physical therapy, topical steroid treatments, rest periods, and a lot of missed opportunities. We've referred other young athletes to him and he has "fixed" them as well! I have become an unofficial spokesperson for Live Well - I can't recommend them enough!!!!
