Low back pain is responsible for over 1 in 5 visits to a Doctors office and is one of our nations most expensive healthcare issues. Combined with the prevalence of Opioid addiction of people who have chronic pain it is no surprise that more and more effort is being put in to finding an effective treatment.

The good news is that current research is proving that Chiropractic Manipulation and Physical Therapy are effective ways to treat many types of low back pain. Of course we at Performance Plus Rehabilitation Centers have been using Chiropractic and Physical Therapy for years to combat low back pain!

Here is how it works. Most low back pain is due to misaligned joints in the spine and the resultant lack of mobility and inflammation that it produces. Properly trained Chiropractors by using carful exam techniques and X-ray are expert in restoring proper alignment and mobility to low back (lumbar) joints. Physical Therapists are professionals in finding muscle imbalances, tightness and weakness that may have either produced the spinal alignment issues or have resulted from those issues.

Our treatment method addresses all of the components necessary for a health joint:

1. Alignment
2. Flexibility
3. Strength

Only when all 3 components of proper joint health are addressed will joint dysfunction and pain be overcome. The research is in: pain medication is out and Chiropractic manipulation with Physical Therapy is the most effective form of treatment for many kinds of low back pain!
