Many people seek out their chiropractor in Encinitas for low back pain. However, if your goal is to treat the pain, surgery (video link only for people with strong stomachs) may be your only alternative. But there are many associated risks.
The risk of back surgery causing more pain is so high that it has been labeled “failed back surgery syndrome” and is defined as “chronic pain in the back or extremities following open spine surgery.” (PMRehab 09). Dr. Scott Fishman admits to having cases where people feel worse after the surgery. Interviews with patients months and years after their surgery have revealed that upwards of 90% still feel pain and that more than 70% cannot do normal activities. These don’t seem like good odds, even with a physician as skilled as this guy doing the surgery.
Pinched nerves, yes may create pain, but more often than not cause the organ at the end of those nerves to malfunction. Imagine pinching the nerve to the heart, the vagus nerve, with a clothespin. That may not produce heart pain, at least yet, but over time that can cause serious malfunction of the heart.
When the nerves to the sciatic nerve are pinched, yes they may cause pain, but what about the prostate gland connected to those low back nerves? You can’t feel that until the prostate has been malfunctioning for many years.
Your chiropractor Encinitas doesn’t treat low back pain. What chiropractors do is to find a subluxation (click to see diagram). A subluxation is a pinching of the nerve, which cuts off life energy from the brain to the muscles, organs, and glands of the body. When this happens, the body begins to break down. Bones shift out of position, develop arthritis, etc.
My goal is not to treat the pain, but find the cause of malfunction in the body, find the subluxation. When the subluxation is correct, you should’ve have to deal with pain, and the body should function normally. My only goal is to find the subluxation and correct it. Here’s what a low back adjustment looks like (video). When this happens and that pressure is release, you come back to life naturally.
So why wait for surgery, then look for a miracle. Chiropractors can detect these subluxations long before they cause disastrous consequences to the body. Sometimes, if the body isn’t properly taken care of for many years, there is no hope. Then surgery may be the only option.
Before your kids or you get aches and pains, and worse yet, diseases, why not get checked by your Encinitas chiropractor to see if you have any of these. You can call the office for a free analysis.
