Most people in the United States will experience lower back pain at least once during their lives. Back pain often develops without a specific cause, and anyone can develop back spasms, even children and teens. Sometimes a back ache gradually improves with home treatment and self-care, but when it doesn't it can lead to worse pain than when it started. Excess weight, lack of exercise and improper lifting are also often responsible for lumbar pain.
Do you have back pain?
Upper and lower back pain is a common human complaint. We use our backs in daily activities without realizing how many muscles and tendons are being used for even the simplest task.
Dr. Baremboym, the Back Pain Specialist
Back therapy is one of the most common reasons that patients come see Dr. Baremboym. His patients seek out a Chiropractor, because a chiropractor is known as a back pain specialist. A back doctor can take measures to treat, prevent or lessen most lumbar spine pain episodes. Surgery is rarely needed to treat chronic lower back pain, and this is where Dr. Baremboym excels in treating back pain holistically.
Back Pain Gone After A Few Visits!*
After I pulled my back moving our couch, I couldn't move without being in serious pain. At every turn, my back would hurt. My wife drove me to Dr. Baremboym to get an adjustment after hearing about him from her neighbor, and after a few visits the pain was nearly gone. I have since recommended only Dr. Baremboym when friends have complained of back pain. Thank you!

Inability to stand up straight
I have back pain, how do I get relief?
If you start having back pain for the first time after the age of 50, have a history of osteoporosis, or any symptoms of conditions discussed here, come see Dr. Baremboym for a consultation, and get your back on track to being pain free.
Conditions commonly linked to back ache include:
Muscle or ligament strain.
Repeated heavy lifting or a sudden awkward movement may result to lumbar spine pain. If you're in poor physical condition, constant strain on your back may cause a painful pinched nerve in back.
Bulging or ruptured disks.
Disks act as cushions between the individual bones (vertebrae) in your spine. Sometimes, the soft material inside a disk may bulge out of place or rupture and press on a nerve. A slipped disk is often found as a by-product.
Osteoarthritis, a most common form of arthritis, has an effect on lower back pain. In some cases, arthritis in the spine can lead to a narrowing of the space around the spinal cord, a condition called spinal stenosis.
Dr. Baremboym has developed a spinal stenosis treatment that improves your ability to do everyday activities without pain or numbness and maintains this ability over the long-term.
Scoliosis, a condition in which your spine curves to the side, may lead to back pain. We treat scoliosis in children , as well as scoliosis in adults. Contact us if you are experiencing any scoliosis symptoms, have mild scoliosis or any irregular curvature of the spine.
Compression fractures of your spine's vertebrae can occur if your bones become porous and brittle, this produces backpain.
The American College of Physicians' Recommendation for Treating Lower Back Pain
The American College of Physicians (ACP) recommends in an evidence-based clinical practice guideline published today in Annals of Internal Medicine that physicians and patients should treat acute or sub-acute low back pain with non-drug therapies such as spinal manipulation, superficial heat, massage, or acupuncture.
Chiropractic health care for lower back pain
Because back pain is one of the most common reasons that people see a chiropractic spine and back specialist, Dr. Baremboym has 17 years of experience with developing combinations of techniques for back pain management.
Chiropractic Back Adjustment
A chiropractic back adjustment is the cornerstone of backpain solutions. Spinal decompression therapy may additionally be included in the therapy for back pain. Dr. Baremboym employs a combination of these when developing a regimen of treatment to tailor to his patients specific needs.
Dr. Baremboym may add supplementary physical therapy in a variety of treatments such as heat, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation to your back injury treatment to reduce pain. As your lower spine pain improves, he will go over with you specific exercises that may help increase your flexibility, strengthen your back and abdominal muscles, and improve your posture. Regular use of these techniques can help prevent pain from returning, and even causing conditions such as pinched nerve in the back.
You may be able to avoid further lumbar pain by improving your physical condition and learning and practicing proper body mechanics as recommended by Dr. Baremboym.
Some helpful tips to get you started on the right path to spinal health:
Stand smart. Maintain a neutral pelvic position. If you must stand for long periods of time, alternate placing your feet on a low footstool to take some of the load off your lower back. Good posture can reduce the amount of stress placed on your lower back that can lead to lower back problems.
Sit smart. Choose a seat with good lower back support, arm rests and a swivel base. Consider placing a pillow or rolled towel in the small of your back to maintain its normal curve. Keep your knees and hips level. Change your position frequently; ideally at least once every half hour and you will avoid having to seek back spasm treatment.
Lift smart. Let your legs do the work. Move straight up and down. Keep your back straight and bend only at the knees. Avoid lifting and twisting simultaneously. Learning to lift properly may be more effective at preventing a recurrence of a herniated disk.
