Auto injuries are usually covered at 100% by the faulty party’s insurance.
Because the muscles, ligaments, bones, discs and nerves that comprise your spinal column are so interconnected, it's often difficult to determine without a comprehensive exam and X-rays, exactly what the cause of your pain may be.
Also, an injury or stress in one area, can lead to additional problems in a kind of "domino effect." For instance, a simple muscle strain may cause you to compensate by carrying your weight differently which can lead to an overall imbalance in the spine or strain on different muscles creating additional problems.
Here are a few of the most common causes of back pain:
Injury or overuse: If you've been injured in an auto, work, or recreational accident, get help at once . Since injury can affect muscles, ligaments, bones or discs around the spine, it's important that you get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan (if required) before the dominos begin to fall.
Repetitive motion and overuse of muscles and joints due to excessive bending, lifting, or other unusual exercise can also cause damage, injury or pain. These symptoms may disappear in time, but if structural damage has occurred, they or other seemingly unrelated symptoms could flare up later. A spinal exam or assessment is recommended
Nerve Pressure or Damage: Pressure on nerve roots in the spinal canal can be caused in a variety of ways; from injury or overuse as mentioned above or from disease or degeneration as follows:
Emotional and Physical Stress: Stress in life can cause muscle tension and set off a vicious cycle of pain. As muscles contract, fatigue can cause muscle aches or pain. Pain and discomfort can lead to sleeplessness with its associated problems such as irritability, depression, and reduced immune function. And so the problems perpetuate.
The first, most important step toward full recovery and prevention of serious long-term health problems is an accurate diagnosis and assessment of your condition with a recommended treatment plan.

Common treatments of upper and lower back pain include everything from bed rest to surgery. REMEMBER: Pain is NOT the natural state of the body, nor is it a "normal" side effect of aging. Pain is the body's way of telling you something is wrong! The best solution is to identify the cause of your pain and correct it-not simply mask the symptoms.
Any of the following treatments can be effective, but most have associated risks of which you should be aware. For this reason it is best to consult with a trusted healthcare practitioner, especially if pain is severe or prolonged.
However sensible getting off your back may seem, studies show that bed rest is NOT superior to remaining (conservatively) active to treat a low back injury. In fact, prolonged bed rest can actually lead to increased stiffness and pain and a reduced ability to function. Periodic short rests can be helpful and your healthcare provider may advise a reduction of normal activity.
Immediately after an injury, ice your back for about 15 minutes at least 3 to 4 times a day to reduce or prevent inflammation and swelling. After 2 to 3 days, if symptoms persist, use a heating pad for 15 to 20 minutes every 2 or 3 hours. Then, if pain continues, see a healthcare professional.
Non-prescription pain relievers such as acetaminophen (i.e. Tylenol) or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDS (i.e. ibuprofen) may be helpful for temporary relief, but are NOT advisable for chronic pain or long term use. Tylenol has recently been linked to liver disease and ibuprofen to bleeding ulcers. Doctors often prescribe stronger drugs for pain, but of course, these have other risky side effects including mental or physical impairment, behavioral effects, and addiction. Extreme caution should be used when undergoing any chemical therapy for pain.
Most back pain problems can be treated effectively without costly and risky surgeries. In fact, one recent study shows that up to 40% of back surgery patients report a DIS-satisfactory result within 4 years of treatment. For this reason, other more natural, less invasive treatments should be explored or exhausted before choosing surgical intervention.
Chiropractic is a natural form of treatment that operates on the premise that the body is designed to heal itself. Chiropractors actually have more training than a traditional general or family care physician. Chiropractors use gentle spinal adjustments to correct spinal misalignment and relieve pressure on sensitive nerves. They often combine this form of treatment with other non-invasive modalities such as muscle stimulation, ultrasound, massage, and physical therapy to relieve symptoms and rebuild core strength and maintain permanent correction. The chiropractor's goal is always to correct the problem, not simply hide the symptoms.
I am a retired RN, and have had degenerative disc disease for over 12 yrs. This has caused me a great deal of pain in my lower back. Unable to walk or r do any of the normal everyday activities. I volunteer at the Shriners Hospital for children and was having to give up the one thing I enjoyed most in life. After being referred to Dr. Henry for decompression treatment, I have felt the best I have felt in 12 yrs. Able to return to volunteer work. Dr. Henry has the most extensive knowledge of the nerves and bones of the body to explain just what treatment is needed for a patient. I have the most trust and admiration for his professional opinion and I am walking proof of what he has recommended for my back and neuropathy in my feet. If you follow what he asks of you, chiropractic wellness benefits your whole well being. Thank you and may you bless everyone you touch.
My life is better. My whole outlook is better. Every time I come its something new! I'm happy after finishing decompression therapy!

Back and leg pain are gone and I'm back on the racquetball court.
I feel better than I have felt in 5 years.
Recovery from 16 mm disc herniation without surgery! I'm glad I got here! From crawling to standing!
I avoided back surgery. I went from a 10/10 pain scale to a zero most of the time.
For 15 years I have had pain, which hindered daily activities not to mention the depression the pain caused because of the chronic never ending aspect t. All this stemmed from an auto accident, arthritis and scoliosis. All is Dr. Henry handled and kept me walking. As three years went by the back developed more problems from age. Dr. Henry suggested the new state-of-the-art spinal decompression machine, ice, and cold laser treatment. Six weeks later I can again walk my dog, play in the yard (work) and feel like a human being again with zero pain. Yes, zero pain. At first the suggestion seemed "maybe" and "expensive". Now... How can one possibly put a price on being pain-free! Thank you, Dr. Henry and staff! You listened, you cared about my pain, and you encouraged me to follow through all with positive, uplifting experience. I am so grateful words cannot express how thankful I am. Thank you for giving me my life back.
Pain 80-90% improved with decompression!
Back pain decreased 80% with decompression. Anyone with real serious back pain should come see you!
I went to Dr. Henry with lower back and hip pain. The pain was so intense in July of 2012 that it was affecting my daily activities and my sleep. The pain had become unmanageable. Dr. Henry did an x-ray and sent me for an MRI. The results were that I had moderate L4 - S1 chronic degenerative disc disease. I also had a bulging disc. Dr. Henry recommended the Disc Force Treatment. I began the treatment and immediately found relief from the pain. I still see Dr. Henry for adjustments for a hip injury that is unrelated to the disc issue. I also periodically have a Disc Force Treatment to decompress the disc in my spine for maintenance. I recommend this treatment to anyone I felt that I was at the point of having to have surgery and the Disc Force was a much better option. Thank you to Dr. Henry and the staff for their help and compassion during my treatment.
I just want to thank you for saving my life. I was scheduled for back surgery when I saw your ad on TV for spinal decompression and a after six weeks of decompression therapy I feel great.
I have had chronic pain since I was 13 years old. It's gotten worse over the last five years to the point of not being able to walk. Dr. Henry took th he time to get a proper diagnosis, explain the problems I was having and reasons why - I fractured my back 20 years ago and the vertebrae shifted and now I have a spondylolisthesis. Dr. Henry recommended Disc Force spinal decompression. It is wonderful to be able to wake up and not be in pain. I still have to be careful and I do have some pain but to be this pain-free is so worth it. Thank you! Everyone in the office is very knowledgeable and friendly and I recommended this practice to my friends and family. Dr. Henry has seen two of my three children both suffered from headaches and both of experienced great relief.
No pain for the first time in 10 years! I highly recommend Decompression with Dr. Henry.
20 years plus in pain. Now doing great! I am able to stand at the kitchen sink.
Numerous treatments (with a file to prove it!) have taken the pain and stress out of my neck from years of stressful teaching!
