Lower back pain and sciatica are two common pain conditions that can have a serious and detrimental impact on your quality of life. From cleaning up the house to playing with our kids, this type of personal injury can wreak havoc on our ability to complete ordinary activities. Our Fort Worth chiropractor and Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist Dr. Chris Michlin does more than just sympathize with our patients’ pain. As a sciatica sufferer himself, Dr. Michlin understands just how frustrating and debilitating this pain can truly be.

Now, he no longer experiences painful sciatica episodes.

Back Pain and Neck Pain are Often Indicative of
Other Spinal Conditions
Upper back pain and neck pain, headaches, and migraines can erupt suddenly or develop over a longer period. In either case, pain is one of the last indications that something is amiss beneath the surface. Immediate pain often erupts from whiplash or an auto injury, although whiplash symptoms may take months to develop. Other causes of upper back pain and neck pain include chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, Chiari Malformation Syndrome, multiple sclerosis and scoliosis, or conditions such as sciatica which are often caused by an underlying misalignment.
Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. If all that the chiropractor does is to reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.
During the correction / restorative phase of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at the center or at home to help accelerate your healing.
Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body has not fully healed. Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.
