Muscle Spasms

Muscles and back spasms occur in any muscle, but usually happen in the lower back. Spasms can be a result of old or new injuries, and vary in degree of severity.

Strains and Sprains

Strains and Sprains are injuries from overuse or repetitive motion. They always involove injuries to a joint with possible tearing of ligaments or tendons. When you suffer a strain/sprain there is usually enough force to cause abnormal function of the spinal joint.

Disc Injuries

Slipped, ruptured, or degenerated discs are caused from years of forceful movements of the spine, often following falls or auto accidents. Disc injuries do not always require surgery and can be treated by Dr. Diamond.

One of the most common causes of low back pain and sciatica (leg pain) is the loss of normal function of a vertabra in the low back. These vertebra become jammed or twisted causing abnormal disc wear, muscle function, and nerve pressure.

Dr. Diamond's approach to low back pain and sciatica is to locate the underlying cause in the low back. This begins with a comprehensive consultation, a thorough orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination. Spinal x-rays will be taken only if necessary.

Dr. Diamond will then give a report of his findings and gentle corrective adjustments if necessary. He gives special attention to structure and function of the spine and its affect on your nervous system.

Dr. Diamond will use specific chiropractic adjustments, if needed, to help restore proper spinal function.
