Majority of low back pain is caused by three things: trauma, repetitive stress, and postural stress.
The three major causes lead to inflammation in the joints and muscles leading to a joint restriction.
Chiropractic frees this restriction through an adjustment where the paitent may feel a "pop".
Once motion is restored and inflamamtion is reduced the patient is started on rehab to maintain good posture and rebuild the muscles.
"I have had severe back pain for the past month and a half. Dr. Dingsor helped me with my pain and he adjusted my hips. He has made me feel like a million bucks. He is also very knowledgeable. I will always come back to him if have any other problems in the future. Thanks doc."
Golf and low back pain
“I suffered from middle and lower back pain that affected my sleep and golf swing. After just a few visits with Dr. Bryan Dingsor I was pain free and back on the golf course again. This is the best my back has felt in years. Thank you Dr. Dingsor for giving me my golf swing back.”
Exam and dianosis are a must in confirming a disc bulge. MRI may be necessary after four weeks of care if no progress is made.
Conservative care is best for the first three months of care unless patient is having unremmitting pain.
Anti-inflammatories may be prescribed through patients physician.
Patients spine is treated via traction and proper postural advice to reduce pressure on the disc.
Once the disc has stabilized, the patient is progressed to a core stability program.
80% of our disc patients are out of pain in less than four weeks.
Proper diagnosis is made to confirm what tissue is causing the pain. X-rays or MRI may be necessary.
Patient is progressed beyond a lay persons rehab to get him/her back into their sport with a strength and conditioning program.
Patient is started on a course of flexion and distraction to reduce pressure on the spine.
Patient is taught spinal "flossing" exercises to reduce neural tension
Once pain has reduced, we start patient on a rehab program to reduce tension on the low back.
Patient usually experiences pain on the left or right side of the low back.
Sitting usually increases the pain and the pain can refer into either buttock.
Non-threatening condition that is easily treated in one to two weeks.
Once patient has stablized, they are taught specific exercises that stabilize the SI joint.
