Do you want to feel young again, be able to exercise, and accomplish more in your life? Are lower back pain issues holding you back? Dr. Barker, your Lakeland low back pain doctor, is ready and able to help you get back on your feet. Heal naturally through chiropractic care regarding back pain, disc issues, sciatica, and plantar fasciitis.
First things first: your Lakeland low back pain doctor needs to know your medical history. What’s the problem? Then he performs a physical exam and may use diagnostic imaging such as x-rays to determine your specific problems. Next up, your Lakeland low back pain doctor does manual adjustments to correct the issue. These are hands-on, controlled, quick adjustments used to align your body’s musculoskeletal structure back into its proper alignment. These misalignments of your spine can and will lead to things like sciatica, back pain and other unfavorable outcomes.
Chiropractors like Dr. Barker generally pay most attention to your spine, while also working on joints, muscles, and connective tissues. Because it’s all done by hand, you don’t need to take pills or drugs that only mask the underlying issue. Chiropractors help people with bad backs all the time. Who do you visit first when your back hurts? A chiropractor, of course.
Related to back pain are disc problems. Often any times you feel pain travel or radiate down different parts of your body, you have a disc problem. If not corrected, often these problems tend to get worse with time. Dr. Barker, your Lakeland low back pain doctor, can diagnose your disc problems with a physical exam and proper diagnostic imaging. New City Chiropractic offers spinal manipulation, therapeutic exercise and decompression to help relieve disc problem pain.
Do you ever feel pain, weakness and/or numbness going down your leg from your back? If so, you may have sciatica. A spinal disc herniation pressing on one of your lumbar or sacral nerve roots is typically the cause of sciatica. If you love to run outdoors in the beautiful Florida weather, you may get plantar fasciitis, which brings an intense pain caused by inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. Often sciatica and plantar fasciitis are connected and can be helped by Dr. Barker, the Lakeland low back pain doctor. He’s also great at helping repair disc problems and low back pain.
