Causes of Back Pain
The nerve-rich facet joints on the back side of each spinal bone are a common cause of back pain. If these pairs of interlocking “fingers” aren’t moving right, they can cause painful symptoms. The discs between spinal bones can be a source of back pain too. These rings of fibrous tissues act as spacers, connectors and “shock absorbers” for the spine. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge or herniated, putting pressure on delicate nearby nerves.

Your Choices of Care for Back Pain
Once you know the cause of your back pain, you have several choices.

Bed rest: One approach shows that prolonged bed rest can actually delay recovery and make the problem worse!

Numb or cover up the pain with drugs: While drugs can offer temporary relief, they can’t correct functional problems of affected spinal joints.

The most dramatic measure is surgery. A laminectomy cuts off the offending facet joints, leaving spinal cords exposed! A spinal fusion cuts out the disc tissue and immobilizes the joint. While there may be times when surgery makes sense, it’s expensive, risky and more than half of all back surgeries fail.
Our Suggestion for Your Back Pain:
Dr. Rorick experience has proven that by utilizing the two best modalities to eliminate back pain are spinal alignments combined with physical therapy. Together they assist in restoring the normal movement of the spine allowing structures to start functioning normally and the pain to subside safely and naturally.

Physical Therapy: We prescribe the use of physical therapy in order to retain the muscles to work correctly the spine has to be in the proper alignment.

Stop suffering from your symptoms.
