Up to 80% of people in developed countries will suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives. For many, occasional pain will turn chronic. 

Prevent Low Back Pain with Spinal Hygiene 

Your spine is made up of several vertebrae, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. These hard and soft tissues create the musculoskeletal structure for the rest of your body to function.

When something damages the foundation of your home, it causes problems all over the house. You can patch problems like a creaky floor, but they’ll keep coming back if you don’t address the source of the issue.

You can keep your body’s “structure” in top shape through techniques like regular spinal adjustments, stretching, and exercises to build muscle strength in your core and back. Chiropractic care is safe and most patients report improved range of motion, reduced need for medication, and less pain overall.

Good spinal hygiene can help your spine recover from earlier injuries and even prevent future injuries.

Dr. David Spring of Spring Chiropractic understands the effect that pinched nerves, whiplash, and herniated discs can have on a person because he experienced them first-hand from a devastating injury. 

After conducting a thorough examination, ordering x-rays, and listening to your medical history, Dr. Spring will develop a personalized treatment plan. Most plans include chiropractic care and adjustments, therapeutic exercise, and massage to restore mobility. 

If x-rays reveal a herniated disc, Dr. Spring may suggest non-surgical spinal decompression to relieve pressure and help your vertebrae heal.
