Look to the Spine!

Look to the spine! It holds the answers. When a Carrolltown back pain or neck pain sufferer turns to Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation for help, he or she can be confident that the Carrolltown chiropractor will methodically study the spine and its related extremities to reveal the source of pain and then establish a treatment plan to relieve the pain and suffering using the most recent and most evidence-based system of chiropractic care documented today. It’s what Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation does!

The spine. It’s the support system of the body. It houses nerves and blood vessels and arteries. It carries the brain’s instructions to all parts of the body. It holds the source of back pain and neck pain for your Carrolltown chiropractor to find. It also ages. It is a reflection of genetics and life experiences. It tires after too much work. Researchers today study these influences on the spine.

One study sets out to find a way to predict how often disc degeneration affects humans and how often low back pain occurs. The estimated age when the spine’s intervertebral disc started to lose growth potential and actually begins to degenerate is 13.3 years young! (Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation encourages children of current Carrolltown chiropractic patients as well as our own young Carrolltown chiropractic patients to feed their discs! Read more about spinal nutrition.) It then degenerates 0.0344 per year. That doesn’t seem like much, does it? But spinal disc degeneration accumulates. It is the driving force behind and cause of age-dependent low back pain. Low back pain is complex, a mix of slow degeneration and fast recurrence of pain episodes. (1)

Now, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation aims to make the complex, simple. When figuring out the source of your spinal pain, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation relies on current guidelines for the management of low back pain. These guidelines are set forth to avoid misdiagnosis and mismanagement which may lead to patient frustration when you don’t experience the care or relief you expect. Unfortunately, this happens as one recent research paper highlights via two cases of low back pain that faced just such frustration until a streamlined, evidence-based approach to diagnosis and treatment was implemented. (2) Chiropractors like yours at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation use evidence-based clinical practice guidelines to prevent low back pain misdiagnosis or mismanagement.

So contact Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation. Your Carrolltown chiropractor will look to the spine then establish a relieving, evidence-based chiropractic treatment plan just for you and get you back to the quality of life you want
