Lower Back

Chiropractic care is safer and often more effective than surgery. Many research projects show conservative chiropractic care is safer and often more effective than back surgery.

Many factors can be responsible for low back pain. Improper sitting or lifting, overexertion, trauma, or inherited spinal abnormalities may contribute to the cause.

For over 20 years, Dr. Orlasky has been performing chiropractic adjustments on patients and has helped literally thousands get well. She is an expert at using specific chiropractic techniques to help improve spinal function.

A lot of the pain-sensing nerves of the spine are in the facet joints, the two interlocking “fingers” at the back of each spinal bone. The normally smooth surfaces on which these joints slide, can become rough, irritated and inflamed.

Surgical treatment often involves removing these facet joints, exposing the spinal cord. Another cause of lower back pain. can be a bulging or herniated disc putting pressure on the spinal cord or a nearby nerve root. The result is often numbness, tingling or pain down the leg.

Cutting away the herniated disc tissue can permanently alter its ability to separate and cushion the adjacent bones. This rarely addresses the underlying structural cause(s) of the problem.

The chiropractic approach is to help restore a more normal motion and position of affected spinal bones with specific chiropractic adjustments. The simplicity and success of this approach has been documented in numerous reseach projects and has helped many patients avoid risky surgery.
