Back Pain

Back pain is a growing epidemic for americans. In fact it’s the most common physical complaint that leads to time lost at work or even the loss of the job itself.

Back pain includes low back pain, middle back pain, and upper back pain. Nerve and muscular problems, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis can all result in debilitating back pain.

 What Are the Causes of Back Pain?

  • Spinal Stenosis

    Occurs as intervertebral discs lose moisture and volume with age, which decrease the space between your discs. Minor trauma with spinal stenosis can cause inflammation and nerve impingement syndrome, which can produce sciatica without disc rupture.

  • Back Injuries

    Back problems and injuries often occur during recreational activities, sports, work-related, or projects at home.

  • Spinal Disk Problems

     Problems with the spine’s discs play a part in back pain.

  • Spinal Degeneration

    The result of a neglected or undetected vertebral subluxation, injury, or misalignment. Research shows that degeneration can start 10 days to 2 weeks upon acquiring a subluxation. It will progress until it has completely destroyed the disc and fused the spine.

  • Spondylolisthesis

    Is a defect or fracture of one or both wing-shaped parts of a vertebra, can result in vertebrae slipping backward, forward, or over a bone below.

  • Spine Curvature Disorders

     Abnormalities which effect the natural curvatures of the spine are misaligned or exaggerated in certain areas, which happens with lordosis, kyphosis, and scoliosis.

"I have been a patient of Dr. Azzari’s since 2000. I came to see him for back and neck pain due to severe scoliosis. The pain I was having was keeping me from, working full time, traveling, plane flights, car rides, hotel beds were all a problem. Having a good quality of life was difficult.

I tried pain meds but they didn’t help at all. The medications just made me very sleepy and the pain was still there.
After I started seeing Dr. Azzari I was able to increase my workload at my job and I had and still have an overall improvement in health and well-being."

"As a young woman I worked as a waitress. This involved some heavy work, such as toting dish-laden trays and reaching out to place heavy dishes on tables. The work shifts were long and the pace was fast. At home I loved gardening, which involved moving large heavy rocks, building brick borders, and building a backyard fishpond. I was rarely grouchy but sometimes depression would set in when I simply couldn’t do the work I loved due to back pain. I tried a few remedies on my own, for example, hanging from a doorway in an attempt to relax my back. I also tried a few over-the-counter drugs but they did not offer much relief. I settled in to tolerate the back discomfort. One morning, approximately ten years ago, I found I was unable to back my car out of the garage. I could not turn my head left or right. Later the day, I discovered and advertising flyer in the local newspaper. The flyer addressed certain approaches to easing back pain. That is when I made an appointment with Dr. Azzari. At the conclusion of my examination and visit, Dr. Azzari explained he could not reverse the damage done but was confident he could relieve the discomfort and return me to a comfortable condition. After several visits I started to improve. My posture, spirits and comfort were lifted. Now, short monthly office visits allow me to function in a lifestyle consistent to my age."

Dick Weeber

"The back and hip pain I was having was making it very difficult to walk, sit, sleep or just move in general. I went to the MD and tried prescription drugs, therapy and exercises, but it didn’t make any difference. I came to Dr. Azzari. After an examination and x-rays he recommended a treatment plan. After the initial treatment plan I went on a maintenance program. His adjustments make it possible for me to be more active and have much less pain than before."
