The Importance of Headache Diagnosis
Good doctors know the importance of getting an accurate diagnosis of a patient’s problem. But why is this so important? It is important because without knowing what is the disease or injury, the treatment cannot be directed to the actual problem. Unfortunately, when it comes to headaches, many patients do not receive an accurate diagnosis. If a patient were to see a doctor with a pain in the head and the doctor were to conclude that you have a pain in your head (headache), this tells little about the actual problem. In headache patients, we’ve become very good at labeling problems-giving them a name. If the headache comes and goes we call it episodic. If it occurs suddenly we call it acute, and if it occurs over many years we say it is chronic. But are these labels really helpful?

Low Back Pain
You are currently suffering from low back pain, you are not alone. One-half of all working Americans report having back pain symptoms each year.1 Whether it is localized pain, back spasms, or radiating pain causing additional leg pain the root cause is generally the same. A lack of global balanced muscle and joint function creates imbalances and a significant increase in stress to a particular region. Prolonged sitting, driving, and poor posture are all contributing habits that reinforce this pattern of increased stress and make you susceptible to injury. Low back pain affects every aspect of your life; exercising, sleeping, playing with your children, and working all become a chore. In fact, back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work and loss of quality of life.

Scoliosis and Chiropractic
In this example, we will see a patient’s first set of x-rays with scoliosis: The follow up views were taken only four weeks later- they are depicted at the right. The program of care included chiropractic adjustments and lumbar traction three times per week for four weeks. You will notice the curvature changing significantly in only four weeks. This patient was 33 years old at the time of this x-ray. She is a mom hauling around kids, baby carriers, and doing everything else a mom does.
