Back Pain in Glendale

Are you experiencing back pain that is preventing you from enjoying or being productive in your everyday life?  Does the pain prevent you from playing with your kids or taking your dog for a walk?  Are you having difficulty sleeping at night because you can’t find a comfortable position?  When you wake up in the morning, do you feel stiff as a board?  If this sounds like you then I urge you to call Dr. Charles E. Richardson III D.C. at Free My Spine Health Group immediately to get your life back.

Your back is a very critical part of your body as it makes up the core or “centerpiece” of your entire body.  When your low back is suffering nearly any movement can become a painful obstacle.  Trying to stand up from a sitting position or trying to sit from a standing position may have you grasping for anything that will help make that transition slow and easy.  But, help may be just around the corner.  At Free My Spine Health group Dr. Richardson, D.C. has helped thousands of patients get back on their feet again moving and feeling pain free.  Sometimes all you need is a push in the right direction.

Dr. Richardson, D.C. treats many different back problems that other conservative methods fail at helping.  His approach is simple; he will take a thorough history, observe your movements, and finally, feel how your body moves to decide what it takes to free your spine.  Many patients come in with x-rays or images of their MRI.  He will gladly review those images or reports with you to help give you a better understanding of your condition and what it will take to get you better.

In reality, conventional medicine only touches the tip of the iceberg in treating your low back pain in Glendale because the true underlying pathology in your back resides in improper movement of the spine and adjoining segments.  This improper movement is usually caused by one or several factors:

  1. Scar tissue in your back:
    1. Scar tissue formation from previous injuries to your back is a major culprit in preventing optimal movement patterns and creating dysfunctional movement patterns.
      1. Dr. Richardson, D.C. uses a revolutionary technique called FAKTR to rid your body of old scar tissue that is living in and around your joints.
    2. Muscle Hypertonicity/Hypotonicity of the back:
      1. This is when your muscles either become too tight (hyper) or too weak (hypo).
        1. This problem is addressed by stretching the tight muscles and strengthening the appropriate weak muscles.
          1. Not only will Dr. Richardson, D.C. perform the necessary stretches for you and personally guide through the right exercises, he will teach some of his secrets on how you can do them at home as well.
        2. Segmental Dysfunction of the back:
          1. This is the term used when your joints are not moving properly or become a bit stuck with regards to their proper motion.
            1. Dr. Richardson, D.C. has a wide variety of techniques to accomplish and re-establish proper joint motion.
              1. If you aren’t a fan of the traditional adjusting methods, we can accommodate you by using the gentlest methods, but either way you will be moving free again.
            2. Joint Inflammation of your back:
              1. By using several different methods including ultrasound, electrical stimulation, moist heat, vibration, cold laser etc. we can greatly reduce the inflammation in your joints that are contributing to pain and joint dysfunction.
            3. Disc Herniation in the low back:
              1. By implementing many techniques mentioned above along with non-surgical spinal decompression, we can accomplish healing to take place at the disc level.
                1. By introducing the non-surgical spinal decompression to the proper disc level, your disc has the opportunity to experience anti-gravity which gently pulls the vertebral segments apart and creates a reverse vacuum phenomenon to occur allowing the disc material to be sucked back into its natural position.
              2. Arthritis of the upper, middle, and/or low back:
                1. This is probably the most common pathology we see in the office.
                2. Conventional medicine tries its best to administer medication, which may help reduce the inflammation, and sometimes pain, but little is done to achieve any lasting effects. However, at Free My Spine Health Group we are able to greatly reduce the symptoms of arthritis by decreasing inflammation, reducing the muscle spasm around the joints, and restoring normal joint motion.

As you can see, whether it’s just one, or several factors causing your back pain, Dr. Richardson, D.C. has the tools and the expertise to help you get rid of your pain and restore the natural, normal joint motion that your back had years ago!
