Dr. Pritsker’s Top Ten Ways To Keep Your Back Pain Free

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Keeping your spine pain free is easier than you think. Here’s my top ten tips that I share with patients to keep them free from back pain:

1. Never bend and lift at the waist when lifting heavy objects. Always bend at the knees, then lift. Remember this: “Lift like an elevator, not like a crane.”

2. Stretch every morning for “5 minutes when you’re out of bed. You may prefer taking a hot shower first but the long-term health of your spine is based on the daily little things and stretching is a “HUGE” little thing.

3. Never sleep on your stomach. If you sleep on your side, put a pillow between your knees.

4. Always wear shoes with backs/heel straps on them. Flip-flop sandals are the worst and should be avoided. Supporting your feet supports your spine.

5. Sitting for two hours straight without stretching is your maximum. Sitting through a long movie is probably okay but stand up and walk around afterwards and arch your back, lean side-to-side, and take your low back through different ranges of motion before you sit down again or drive home.

6. Water intake should be about 8 glasses of water per day. If you drink alcohol, soda, coffee, or are eating salty food, you must drink an additional 12-24 ounces of water that day.

7. If you know you are going to be doing a heavy-duty activity such as moving furniture or even be on your feet for hours at a time then wear a back support belt.

8. Proper nutrition remains important to maintain the health of your discs. I recommend the supplement Glucosamine Sulphate.

9. Exercise is great. Walking 1/2 hour each day with light weights is the best. Leave the weights at home if you prefer but get in some walking every single day! Other great options are yoga, Pilates and step aerobics. But for those of you with type-A personality’s exercise caution with these- DO NOT GO TOO HARD TOO FAST! Also, be sure to walk or run on even surfaces.

10. If you have any questions, be sure to ask! I’m here to help you so if you have a question don’t hesitate to ask.

San Diego Chiropractic Care Proved to Show Great Results for Back Pain

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Many people have commonly experienced pain in their lower back region at some point in life. It is not surprising that it’s the 5th most common reason people visit doctors in the U.S. Low back pain condition can be treated by Dr. Michael Pritsker in San Diego at New Century Spine Centers.

Low back pain is pain in the lower back region of the spinal column- the last 5 segments of the spine and the intervertebral disks associated with it (to be more precise). Causes of lower back pain vary and can be slightly a ‘pain’ in itself to detect. This ranges from lifting and holding heavy objects to the simple and unexpected ‘carrying a wallet in the back pocket’. Yes, carrying a wallet can cause chronic lower back ache too.

Now, coming to our more characteristic topic of chiropractic doctors, these are a specialized group of medical practitioners who believe in the theory that the human body exhibits variations of pains are caused due to problems emerged from the nervous system and the misalignment of the human vertebral column.

Chiropractors usually adjust the spine or other discrete parts of the body to accurately align the vertebral column and maintain the body’s natural capability to restore itself. Chiropractic treatment not only distinctly treats the pain, but also, is associated with strength and the dynamics that enhances common function and improves the art of living. When you are seeking chiropractic help, it is crucial to reveal and discuss any physical problems or disabilities you have aside from low back pain.

A form of therapy called, spinal adjustment, is the application of controlled force to a joint, shifting it beyond the normal range of motion. This treatment is principally based on the subluxation theory, which says that the several forms of pain arising in the body are principally caused by faulty alignment of the spinal column. It is used by chiropractors to minimize pain, amplify mobility, and revive biomechanical and anatomical relations between spinal segments to advance rapid betterment.

Chiropractic care takes about 3-6 weeks to treat patients with nonspecific and uncomplicated low back pain and up to 10 weeks for those with more severe cases. Treatment for spinal adjustment can prevent the onset of a chronic disorder associated with immobility which results in successful recovery especially if combined with exercise and good body mechanics.

Was Chiropractic Care The Miracle That Saved This Little Girl??

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

The day Pam Flynn hurt her knee may have been the best day of Helen Bibb’s life, say the neighbors on Hortense Street in the area of North Hollywood. That mishap launched a journey for Bibb’s daughter Laura, a 10-year old developmentally delayed girl, who went from being the neighborhood pity to the neighborhood super Rocky. This happened all because Pam Flynn hurt her knee and went to see a local chiropractor in town. This started a chain of events.

It’s one of those quiet, tree-lined residential blocks where people move in and stay for en entire lifetime. It’s where neighbors know more about each other than their names and what kind of cars they drive. They know their personal lives, both the good and the bad. Pam Flynn and neighbor Tracy Johnson and Elaine Alexander have shared many cups of morning coffee with Helen Bibb. And over the years, they’ve heard how Helen’s daughter, Laura, was diagnosed as a baby as being mildly mentally retarded. And that when it came true for her to start school, her skills and test scores placed her at the severely retarded level in her class.

They’ve learned that Helen and her husband Ron, never stopped fighting for their daughter. They knew that Helen spent half her lifetime on the Internet and on media looking for the answer to why Laura’s body was also betraying her. She wanted to know why she kept falling down, or would start to binge-eat and refuse to talk to even her family for long stretches of time.

The Internet and the media didn’t give Helen the answers that she was looking for, and neither did her doctors, who vowed that everything medical science had to offer, inside the confines of an HMO plan was being done to help her daughter. “I was on the diagnosis merry-go-round, going nowhere,” Helen says. “There were plenty of explanations and excuses, but no answers.”

The latest setback came when Laura began to suffer from swollen knees that were diagnosed as severe growing pains. “She had foot orthotics put in her shoes, but her knees were still swollen and getting worse.” Helen said “Her right leg and foot were starting to turn in. The orthopedic doctors suggested knee braces and painkillers.” This was not the answer.

From behind their window on her street the neighbors watched the slow deterioration of this little girl they had known since birth. She was now barely able to walk down the street without falling down on the sidewalk.

“We had all watched her grow up, and to see her in pain, falling down like this, well, it was heartbreaking,” said the neighbor. There was nothing they could do but give the Bibb family moral support. They weren’t doctors and didn’t know what to do.

Then one day, Pam Flynn wrenched her knee and went to see a chiropractor. While she was being treated, she mentioned her 10-year-old neighbor who was falling down all the time, and would soon need braces and a steady diet of painkillers just to get around. “The idea of this wonderful girl who had already been through so much, now needing braces to walk really threw me,” Pam said.

When she got home later that day, Pam knocked on her next-door neighbor’s door and told Helen about her chiropractor, and that he also treated kids. “Go see him,” Pam said. “What could it hurt?”

“I was looking for anything that would interfere with Laura’s nervous system, and I found a vertebra at the base of her skull was way out of place and putting pressure on her nerves,” the chiropractor said. “So I adjusted it.” So simple, Helen said. An adjustment. Not braces and painkillers.

“The first thing Laura did was let out a big sigh of relief,” Helen said. “That night she came down the stairs by herself. We were stunned at what was happening. This used to take forever with Laura holding on to both rails, her dad in front so she wouldn’t fall, and me guiding from behind.”

“Laura now wants to move and run and be a real kid for the first time. All the doctors said that her foot would stay turned in and there was nothing they could do. Well, her foot has straightened out too.” And during the summer, her daughter did something Helen, in her most optimistic dreams, never would have thought possible. With her mom and dad, younger sister Julie, and older brother Edward cheering her on and bursting with pride, Laura swam with the dolphins at Sea World.

“She’s an entirely different little girl, mentally as well as physically,” says neighbor Elaine. “She used to be shy and hide behind her mother. Now, she’s in the open talking. When we’d walk the dogs, Laura couldn’t keep up. Now, she’s out front. It’s been a remarkable transformation.”

Miracle or simply an adjustment, Ron and Helen Bibb are feeling like the luckiest people in the world, seeing their daughter smiling and happier than ever. “Look at her – she’s so proud of herself,” Helen said recently, watching Laura help Pam and Harry Flynn walk their dogs down Hortense Street.

The little girl who used to be the neighborhood pity is now the neighborhood Rocky, leading the pack. Stories like this and more happen every day at the chiropractic office of New Century Spine Centers in San Diego.

Chiropractor Cracks The Back Pain Code With New Spinal Decompression Technology

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Countless doctors, chiropractors, and patients wonder what it really takes to get rid of back and neck pain. Is it really all about having the special technique, utilizing the right equipment, or is it just a matter of good old fashioned “luck”? Sometimes it’s a combination of all of these. As you walk into the door of New Century Spine Centers in San Diego, you really just get a feeling that this is the place that exceeds expectations when it comes to getting rid of sciatica and back pain. It’s a story that is written all over the faces of happy patients coming out of the treatment rooms. But what is it that makes this office so different compared to countless other chiropractic offices in San Diego? As one patient states, “I don’t want to give away what makes Dr. Pritsker such a popular choice as a doctor, you really just have to experience it for yourself.”

When asked what makes his treatment so successful, Dr. Pritsker simply answers, “I always think about what it is that people want and need and I give it to them. I just do what works, not what just sounds good” And that he does. With thousands of back-pain victims taking pain medication for many years and some resorting to surgery, Dr. Pritsker was the first chiropractor in San Diego to revolutionize back pain treatment by introducing a new state-of-the-art painless therapy that has shown success in even those individuals with the worst kind of back pain, such as disc bulges, arthritis, disc degeneration, disc herniations, and more. With Dr. Mike Pritsker’s introduction of spinal decompression therapy to San Diego residents, it’s everything one might hope to experience when wanting to finally get rid of torturous back pain and restore a pain-free, active lifestyle.

When the spinal decompression technology was first introduced by Dr. Michael Pritsker in San Diego, the word spread like wildfire and soon there was a waiting list to receive this treatment. At about that time, Channel 10 News picked up the story and it was aired during the evening news hour. During this news special, news anchor Carole LeBeau had an opportunity to try the spinal decompression machine for herself and admitted “it feels nice…like the way your back should feel.” Since then, this treatment for back and neck pain has successfully treated thousands of patients.

Dr. Michael Pritsker continues to provide new and advanced treatment technology to San Diego residents and beyond for the relief of pain associated with arthritis, spinal degeneration, sciatica, headaches, neck pain, disc bulges, back pain and more. He tries to make the treatment affordable to everyone and also accepts most insurance plans such as Aetna, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Cigna, United Healthcare, Kaiser, Optimum Health, and more. They offer various treatment options ranging from short term relief care to long term corrective care. The chiropractors of New Century Spine always put their patients first when it comes to healthcare.

In the past twelve years, Dr. Pritsker has treated thousands of patients suffering from back and neck pain and continues to stay ahead of other doctors by offering patients the most advanced non-invasive technology in the treatment of some of the worst cases of neck pain, leg pain, spinal stenosis, and back pain. More information can also be obtained by calling the toll free 24 hour recorded information hotline at 1-888-867-4951. With advances in back pain therapy, many people don’t have to live with pain any more.

Survey Says Chiropractic Outperforms Other Back Pain Treatment Options

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Visit www.backcaretreatment.comIf you have back pain you are probably old enough to remember Richard Dawson first yelling the “Survey Says” phrase on the popular 70s and 80s game show, The Family Feud. If not then it doesn’t matter. You just learned something interesting about American pop culture and game show history. So what does the survey really say? According to an August 9, 2011 article on chiroeco.com, “In a new survey, chiropractic outperformed all other back pain treatments including prescription and over-the-counter medications, deep-tissue massage, yoga, and Pilates.

According to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), this news reinforces the use of conservative care options such as chiropractic care in San Diego as a first line of defense against pain. The survey, released by a leading consumer product rating and survey publisher in late July, found that 65 percent of those surveyed using chiropractic care for back pain said it helped a lot. Only 53 percent of respondents using prescription medications found them as helpful. “Additionally, about half of those surveyed who are using yoga or Pilates said those treatments helped a lot and only 28 percent of respondents using over-the-counter medications reported that they helped a lot.

“Current evidence-based guidelines support the use of conservative care such as chiropractic for conditions such as chronic lower back pain.” One serious eye-opener was that only 28% of respondents said over-the-counter medications helped a lot. It has been known for quite some time that common over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAID) have serious side effects. One of these side effects is that an estimated 16,500 people die every year. Natural, conservative options like Chiropractic, deep tissue massage, yoga, and Pilates are most likely better and safer choices when it comes to relieving back pain.

Neck pain is also very common and it can make your life miserable. If you suffer from headaches there is a very good chance you suffer from a common type of headache called “cervicogenic headache.” This type of headache is caused by a problem in your neck. One way to tell you might suffer from cervicogenic headaches is to identify if any neck motions cause the headaches or increase their severity.

Also, take a good look at yourself in the mirror. Does your head tilt to one side? Is your head posture bad? In other words, does your head stick out in front of you instead of sitting back over your torso? You’ll probably need a trained eye (like your Chiropractor’s) to see that one. Chiropractors like the chiropractors at New Century Spine Centers in San Diego are trained to spot problems in the spine.

According to an “evidence report” published by Duke University researchers, “Cervical spinal manipulation was associated with improvement in headaches in two trials involving patients with neck pain and/or neck dysfunction and headache. Manipulation appeared to result in immediate improvement in headache severity when used to treat episodes of cervicogenic (from the neck) headaches when compared with an attention-placebo control. Furthermore, when compared to soft-tissue therapies, a course of manipulation treatments resulted in sustained improvement in headache frequency and severity. However, among patients without a neck pain/dysfunction component to their headache syndrome – that is, patients with episodic or chronic tension-type headaches – the effectiveness of cervical spinal manipulation was less clear.”

Are Beck Belts Effective In Reducing Injury Claims

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Visit www.BackCareTreatment.comIf you’ve ever walked through a department or grocery store while employees were stocking the shelves or moving supplies, you’ve probably witnessed a back belt in action. Many employers recommend or require back belts to reduce employee injuries and injury claims.

But are back belts effective in preventing back injuries? Not according to a study in the December 6, 2000 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. In the largest study of its kind, incidence rates of workers’ compensation claims and six-month incidence rates of self-reported low back pain were gathered from 13,873 employees at 160 retail merchandise stores in 30 states. Eighty-nine stores required back belt use and 71 had a voluntary back-belt policy. All employees were interviewed at the study’s inception and again at a two-year follow-up.

Results showed that neither frequent back belt use nor a store policy requiring such use had any significant effect on back injury claim rates or self-reported back pain. Accounting for multiple risk factors, such as lifting frequency and/or a history of previous back injury, did not substantially alter these findings.

In 1998, a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics survey revealed that Americans suffered nearly 300,000 back injuries due to overexertion. This resulted in lost days from work. As this study shows, back belts probably aren’t the answer to this growing problem. Fortunately, there are other options, including sound advice and care from experts in dealing with back pain.

Chiropractic For Getting Rid Of Back Pain

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Chiropractic is the practice whereby hands-on adjustments of bones within the body and the spinal column are used to drive away pains from within the bones. This is a common practice utilized to get relief from back aches and stiffness by Dr. Michael Pritsker at New Century Spine Centers in San Diego. This practice operates on the theory known as the “subluxation theory” that the improper alignment of the human vertebrae affects the body’s nervous system and that pains and other disease can originate when this happens. So, its aim is to properly align the vertebrae for better health and relief from these pains.

To receive chiropractic treatment, the patient has to visit a chiropractor who uses manual adjustments or re-alignments to keep the vertebrae back in shape and restore the health condition of the patient. Some studies have shown that this process has been very effective in bringing relief to patients with back pains and some general ailments. These include certain back problems such as sciatica, leg pain, and back pain. For this lack of scientific evidence, some experts in the medical field have completely rejected the notion of chiropractic, though some chiropractors currently work with renowned doctors on part time and full time basis these days in the treatment of back pains and associated ailments.

Generally, if you are constantly plagued by back pain, the chiropractic might be a good option to try out as it has proven reliable in the treatment of back pains, assisted with the restoration of mobility and corrected neuron-musculoskeletal disorders in some patients. Let us go through the process of getting back pain relief through this medium, especially the lower back pain which most office executives and labor workers seem to be affected by today.

Manual re-alignment or adjustments of the vertebrae by the chiropractor are achieved by using the hands to apply pressure enough to cause the vertebrae to get back to its normal space. High velocity thrusts and spinal traction are common methods used in this regard. Also, professional massages and the stretching of back muscles are effected to relax the muscles and make the adjustments easier. Generally, the process might also some therapeutic exercises on specific group of muscles aimed at properly aligning the spinal cord.

The principle of using massages to relax the nerves and muscles is also part of the process employed by chiropractors to provide cures for back pain. The massage therapists at Happy head foot reflexology and massage in San Diego do a great job at helping reduce pain from muscle spasms. Most often, you find professional massage teams working alongside the chiropractors, because it is believed that relaxed muscles can be easily put back in place than the tensed ones. Also, regular exercises and relaxed nerves are a means of keeping the adjustment by the chiropractor in place over time.

Is Spinal Decompression Making Back Surgery For Herniated And Bulging Discs Obsolete?

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Since offering treatment for herniated and bulging discs with spinal decompression therapy in San Diego, we have heard over and over things like “I can’t believe I was actually thinking about surgery. But when I got the results of my MRI and I had multiple herniated discs, my other doctor said it was my only choice. If it wasn’t for the news special they had on ABC News with Carol LeBeau and your free reports (with all the proof!), I never would have known about spinal decompression and I’d probably still be suffering today. It feels great to be finally pain free and NOT have to go through surgery – but why didn’t my other doctor know about ABS and DRX9000 Spinal Decompression and send me to you first? When he said there were no other scientifically proven treatments and surgery was my only option, it made me much more skeptical about what you said about spinal decompression in San Diego. It was hard for me to believe that there was such an amazing breakthrough treatment out there and my doctor didn’t know anything about it. Why wasn’t I given ALL the information right from the beginning? That’s why I went to my doctor in the first place! I just wonder how many people go through unnecessary surgery and continue suffering simply from misinformation and fear?”

There may not be an answer to the question. But it is known that there are a lot of people suffering and having unnecessary surgeries. And the most important thing is if you are suffering with back pain, leg pain, leg numbness, tingling and/or pain, sciatica or if you have been diagnosed with a herniated and/or bulging disc there is a very good chance you can get help without drugs or surgery. And the fact of the matter is there is scientific proof that the Spinal Decompression System has achieved an 86% success rate with herniated and/or bulging discs.
Surgery cannot even come close to claiming those kinds of results. I have seen some studies claiming surgery gets a 50% success rate.

According to a U.S. Federal guideline on low back pain, “Surgery has been found to be helpful on only 1 in 100 causes of low back pain problems. Even having a lot of back pain does not, by itself, mean you need surgery.” That’s coming from a panel of experts commissioned by the United States Federal Government! What the panel of experts found and reported in that guideline was quite eye-opening to say the least. Here’s the reference if you’d like to take a look at it for yourself: Bigos s, et al. Acute Low Back Pain Problems In Adults, Clinical Practice Guidelines No 14. Rockville, MD: U.S. Public Health Service, U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, AHCPR pub. No 95-0642, Dec. 1994.

But here’s what I’m really shocked about: so many patients tell me they were “afraid” to try the ABS Spinal Decompression, they were “afraid” not to get surgery, they were told and believed they would be taking a risk trying the ABS before going under the knife. For the life of me, I can’t understand how cutting into your back and either cutting away the herniated or bulging part of your disc or surgically fusing a couple of your spinal segments can be thought of as an option before trying drx 9000 spinal decompression therapy in San Diego.

This is not to say surgery is never an option. In some cases it is. But, in many cases, it clearly should not be your first and only option. With spinal decompression, in many cases, your herniated disc is actually fixed – not cut out or fused. Spinal decompression achieves this through its cutting edge computer technology. This computer technology creates a logarithmic curve that senses your body an amazing 17 times per second. When the spinal decompression machine starts to distract your injured spinal segments, if your muscles begin to contract, the computer knows instantly and backs off slightly.

The computer picks up even the slightest amount of pressure from your muscles which is why treatments are painless and most patients say they don’t feel anything at all. Many even fall asleep during treatments while they are listening to their favorite music or watching a DVD movie. This distraction process continues until a negative pressure is achieved and the herniated disc is, in many cases, sucked back into place. Pre and post MRI studies have actually shown that herniated disc material has gone back into place and discs have increased in size and become much healthier. This negative pressure also allows valuable water and nutrients to flow into the disc so it can regain height and heal naturally.

As opposed to surgery that cuts out the herniated disc – leaving it damaged and predisposed to further injury. This is also much different from regular traction which has been shown to be ineffective at treating herniated and bulging discs. Dr. Michael Pritsker, a chiropractor at New Century Spine Centers in San Diego specializes in the treatment of disc injuries using advanced spinal decompression technology. Dr. Mike Pritsker has been practicing in San Diego since 2000 and has been specializing in spinal decompression therapy since 2002. He has successfully treated thousands of patients with back and neck pain.spinaldecompressiontherapy

Chiropractor In San Diego Reveals New Spinal Decompression Therapy Protocol To Eliminate Back And Neck Pain

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Back and neck pain can be potentially debilitating conditions for many individuals. These conditions will strike millions of Americans this year alone. Many of them will suffer for the rest of their lives due to incorrect information from friends and bad care from doctors.  The good news is that San Diego chiropractic doctor Dr. Mike Pritsker is sharing little known secrets that are helping thousands of people live pain free and enjoy their life. And best of all, the spine treatment program doesn’t involve risky medication and dangerous surgery.

 

Reality is most of us are all influenced by slick commercials that sell neck and low back pain medicine. That’s why we keep our medicinal cabinets, handbags, and car glove compartments fully stocked with all the stuff.  As a matter of fact, they now sell pain medication at Costco and Walmart in huge quantities.  People go down the aisles and toss a case in their shopping cart like it’s a bag of potato chips or a 12 pack of beer. And of course drug companies don’t tell the causes of neck and low back pain because they know that they sell medication to cover up the symptoms and to really treat the cause of the condition.

 

There are many different options for the treatment of neck and low back pain. Some of these options include but are not limited to chiropractic care, massage therapy, acupuncture, physical therapy, medicine, and spine surgery. Many of these options unfortunately may not work for people suffering from back and neck pain that is related to disc injuries such as disc rupture and disc bulges. Many people unfortunately end up turning to risky spine surgery to help their back problems. Others may opt for spinal injections consisting of Cortisone and Epidurals which only offer short term relief. They soon discover that it just masks the problem by covering up the symptoms while the condition worsens all along.

 

There are safer and better options for eliminating back and neck pain. Many people suffering from back pain and leg pain are turning to New Century Spine Centers in San Diego to learn about advanced spinal decompression therapy and specialized chiropractic care to fix their spinal condition. On their website, visitors can watch videos of San Diego’s spinal decompression chiropractor Dr. Michael Pritsker, DC revealing his revolutionary technology on special television appearances on Fox6 news and channel 10 news. Many people are finding the solution to their back and neck pain with Dr. Michael Pritsker’s revolutionary treatment program.

 

Spinal decompression therapy has been successfully treating back and leg pain for over a decade. Since 2001, Dr. Mike Pritsker has helped thousands of people live pain free and enjoy their life free from pain. Spinal decompression treatment with specialized chiropractic treatment in San Diego has worked for conditions like sciatica, leg pain, cramps, spinal stenosis, muscle spasms, neuralgia, disc bulges, arthritis, facet syndrome, and disc herniations. It even has worked in some cases when all else has failed. Back pain not only causes back and leg pain. It causes other conditions like depression, lost days from work, and can seriously impact someone’s lifestyle. Getting the proper treatment for the condition is important to get the best results. And it’s not a matter of what kind of spinal decompression machine the doctor uses. There are several available. There are the DRX9000, ABS, Triton, Vax-D and more. It’s more important to choose the best back doctor to properly utilize the equipment.

The Chiropractors Of New Century Spine Centers in San Diego Announce New Affordable Treatment For Back Pain, Sciatica, Numbness, and Whiplash.

Monday, April 18th, 2011
Spinal decompression therapy and chiropractic care are great options for the treatment of back and leg pain, but the price tag may be too hard for some to afford. Dr. Michael Pritsker is one of the chiropractors at New Century Spine Centers. The chiropractors at the San Diego office are now making it more affordable than ever for those suffering from disc pain and injury to get the treatment they need without breaking the bank. In this struggling economy, finding the right chiropractor at the right cost is very important.
Spinal disc bulges and disc herniations can cause conditions such as sciatica, thoracic outlet syndrome, leg pain, numbness, neuralgia, neuropathy, back pain and more. Some of the most common treatment options for these conditions are chiropractic care, massage therapy and spinal decompression therapy with the DRX900 and similar machines. For some people with disc degeneration, these options have been described by some as a miracle and the treatment that eliminated all their pain and solved their problem. Unfortunately for some, the cost of treatment is more than they can bear and patients are left suffering in pain. With insurance companies covering less treatment options and insurance premiums going up every year, there must be more affordable options.
Dr. Carissa Hang, DC states “many times we have a patient who we know we can help, but sometimes affording the treatment for them can be the most difficult.” With the high technology for the newer back pain treatment equipment, of course comes higher price tags. And with insurance companies paying less and less, the end result is that the patient ends up having to cover the cost.
Dr. Michael Pritsker, DC and the other chiropractors at New Century Spine Centers are teaming up with other health professionals to find ways to help patients suffering from back and leg pain get the treatment they need. There are primarily three effective treatment options for sciatica and arthritis, but many patients may find it difficult to afford regular care. These three treatment options are chiropractic care, spinal decompression therapy, and massage therapy.
Chiropractic care in San Diego by licensed chiropractors is a great treatment option for those suffering from whiplash from a car accident, sciatica from disc injury, arm pain from thoracic outlet syndrome, and back pain from sprains and strains. The chiropractors at San Diego’s New Century Spine Centers try to assist many patients to help make their chiropractic care affordable by being in network on many insurance plans including Blue Shield, Blue Cross, Aetna, United Healthcare, Cigna, American Specialty Health Plans and more. They also offer affordable financing and monthly payment options. New Century Spine Centers also offers an affordable initial exam to find out if you are a candidate for chiropractic care. The first visit can be as low as $17 with a coupon that can be printed off their website.
Spinal decompression therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment option for degenerative disc disease, sciatica, herniated discs, bulging discs, back pain, facet syndrome, whiplash, numbness and tingling. Compared to spinal disc surgery, spinal decompression can be an affordable treatment option costing thousands less than spinal fusion. At www.BackCareTreatment.com, those suffering from back and neck pain can get more information about chiropractic care and spinal decompression therapy.
Massage therapy in San Diego is a great treatment option for muscle spasms, tension, stress, headaches, sprains and strains. Massage is an effective form of therapy, but regular massage therapy can end up being costly. With more and more Chinese reflexology massage centers popping up throughout San Diego, massage is becoming more affordable than ever. However, making sure that you get the right massage for your condition can become difficult. The chiropractors at New Century Spine Centers have searched throughout San Diego for the best and most affordable massage center and they recommend the upcoming Happy Head Foot Reflexology and Massage center in Hillcrest. Their price for a foot reflexology massage is only $29 and they will be working closely with chiropractors and other health professionals to offer the best and right massage.
