How We Treat Back Pain. (Video)

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Tue, Nov 18, 2014 @ 05:07 PM

I get the question often from people suffering from back pain.... "How do you treat Back Pain, and why is your program so much better?" 

It's not uncommon that patients will get better with our treatments, when other treatment they tried have failed. This has everything to do with how we treat, and what we treat.  We treat the "Disc", and we use a process of eliminating the pressure on the discs that allows for healing. Almost 95% of all chronic back pain stems from the disc.  When other treatments fail its because those treatments don't address the cause of the pain- The Disc.

We put togather a video about our treatment, and how we treat the disc.  Watch the video and you will have a better understanding of what makes ours so much different then all others.  We don't use any drugs or surgery.

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Thu, May 29, 2014 @ 10:48 AM

Sciatica pain stems from pressure on and/or irritation of the sciatic nerve. The nerve emanates from both sides of the lower spine, through the pelvic area and the buttocks, down the back of the thighs. The nerve splits at the knee forming branches extending to the feet. Pain can stretch all along this route and may be mild and achy or sharp and burning, often accompanied by pins-and-needles sensations.
