LOW BACK PAIN
Dr. Rehl provides care for conditions such as a sprain or strain, subluxations, herniated discs, etc. through adjustments, soft tissue care and core or other exercises as needed. Low back pain may be from many different components of the body not functioning or aligned well, where several factors are considered as part of the care given.
Spinal adjustments are very effective for treating headaches that originate in the neck. Conditions such as tension-like headaches and migraines can be resolved or reduced through adjusting the cervical vertebrae and upper thoracic vertebrae. Diet and other factors are considered.
As the pillar structure of the body, the spine provides stability and support for the body, and protection of the spinal cord. Addressing spinal alignment, joint movement, and posture are key to health. In particular, it is the proper functioning of the nervous system that is so important to one’s health that chiropractic addresses.
Our spinal discs may be thought of as a jelly filled doughnuts. The nucleus pulposus is the jelly, acting as a shock absorber surrounded by fibrocartilaginous tissue called the annulus fibrosis. The annulus fibrosis is a very tough network of fibers that is a ligament keeping the vertebrae above and below together as well as giving form to the disc.
Muscle weakness can occur for a variety of reasons. In the realm of chiropractic, two of the top questions asked are what affects the nerves and how are biomechanics functioning? Muscle weakness may be observed, it may be detected with muscle testing for strength, it may be part of the patient’s history, etc. Dr. Rehl uses orthopedic, neurologic, and specific soft tissue tests, such as through Applied Kinesiology, together with the patient history and any special imaging deemed necessary to properly diagnose and address the issues your are having.
