Our sedentary lifestyles, unhealthy eating and lack of exercise put us in a terrible predisposition to struggle with pain. Back pain comes in all forms, whether it flares up immediately because of an injury or develops slowly over time. Poor posture tends to be the biggest culprit, followed by age, weight, and accidents that can cause us to suffer. Whether you sit behind a computer all day or work in a warehouse, everyday life can be difficult to manage when dealing with any back pain at all. Chiropractic care can be a lifesaver and help with several back-related pain issues. If you live with any pain at all, you owe it to yourself to try chiropractic treatment for back pain.
This is one of the most common back issues that Americans struggle with daily. It usually starts with a disk issue in the lower back (often herniated) and when a vertebra wears down or slips out of place, that pressure causes the soft disk to push on the sciatic nerve. This nerve is the longest in the body and starts in the lower spine and runs down to each foot. The symptoms often include pain that radiates from the lower back down one or both legs with the distance down the leg varying. The pain can range from a mild ache to sharp and severe, while numbness, tingling, and weakness are common as well. Chiropractic care is often the best solution when over-the-counter, and home remedies fail to work for long periods of time.
Many Americans suffer from neck strain and headaches that are brought on by poor posture day in and day out. Staring at a computer screen all day with improper ergonomics puts a great deal of stress on the muscles and joints in the neck and supporting areas. The human head weighs roughly 10lbs, and when we sit with poor posture, the pressure that is created can cause serious problems ranging from subluxations of the vertebrae to muscle spasms. Seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis can help minimize the pain caused by our sedentary lifestyles. While the long-term fix to these problems in posture correction with the help of consistent chiropractic adjustments.
Caused by a variety of reasons, low back pain is often just considered a part of life due to the how common it is. Even just sleeping in the wrong position at night can cause a misalignment of the spine resulting in pain. Dull, sharp, chronic or acute, low back pain knows no limits and can affect anyone. Whether the cause of pain is muscular or skeletal, a good chiropractor can find the root of the problem and correct the abnormalities and get you back to living pain-free.
Not all back pain is caused from the spine, sometimes the major joints of the hips, knees, and shoulders can be out of place. Misaligned hips can put a strain on the low back muscles causing pain. Knees can force the body to compromise and stress the spine, while shoulders can do the same with the upper back. A chiropractor will recognize the cause of the problem if it stems from the surrounding joints and corrects the issues.
Any back pain can be debilitating, and with many simple solutions available, you owe it to yourself to correct the problem instead of living with it. At BackFit Health+Spine, we specialize in proven chiropractic care that helps our patients get back to living their lives to the fullest pain-free.

I’ve been working hard to stay in great shape the past year, so I couldn’t understand why my body wasn’t just healing itself. When I got to BackFit, I was initially nervous but immediately felt more comfortable as soon as I met the staff. Everyone at the front desk has been nothing short of amazing - so helpful and SO nice. During my consultation, I found out that the issue wasn’t just a “tweak,” but something that has been building for a while. However, I felt at ease with the plan from the DC. Every time I go in, I am met with a smile and warm conversation. I highly recommend giving this place a shot!read less

You’re gonna love it here.” And man, was she right. Ever since I’ve been in, I’ve had nothing but great experiences. The staff is AMAZING! I feel like they’re more like friends than staff which makes me feel so comfortable there. They are also extremely helpful, even if it’s about another pain problem that’s not my primary focus. I look forward to going to PT every week. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Not only has this place fix me physically, but mentally because being in an environment that’s so friendly and welcoming can really make someones entire day. Thank you Backfit.read less

I had bones fused in my foot 5 years ago and have had serious back issues ever since. The surgery on my foot also resulted in serious balance, walking, and general core and right leg muscle activation issues. After three weeks of treatment I no longer have severe back pain issues and am able to do regular weekend chores. Before treatment I was pretty much on my back all weekend. With the back issues alleviated I can now work on building back the muscle memory and strength in my right leg. It is a process, not an easy fix, and the atmosphere the folks at Backfit Ocotillo create make me want to stick to my plan. Thanks guys!read less

They have helped me to get back to feeling good so many times. Whether I come in because of headaches or pain in my foot and knee, I have been brought back to 100% each time and have been given tools and education on how to better take care of myself so it doesn’t happen again. The doctors are also fun and friendly, and my daughter loves them and asks to go “get my back adjusted”. We have been patients since 2009 and won’t go anywhere else!!read less

After years of being told my only options were drugs and surgery coming to Superior was refreshing. No drugs, no surgery. My hip was so bad I could not walk to the mailbox. I had stem cell and I received 80% improvement. Since then I have had stem cell in my shoulder, knees and my lower back. I feel better no longer on all the diabetes meds because I am more active. My quality of life has improved and i am blessed by their care and integrity. I trust them with my life. Their real motive is to help . Thank you so much!read less

I had my first appointment today and the staff couldn’t have been more welcoming.The exam was very thorough and I felt like all my questions were answered and that there was an understanding of my pain.I have been to other chiropractors where I felt like a commodity and that they didn’t really care about the pain I was in, they just wanted to make some cash off of my weakness.That is absolutely NOT how I felt here at BackFit Health and Spine, the staff here care about your pain and want to help you and get to the source of your pain and injuries, not just bandaid the problem and squeeze you for every last penny to “fix it”.BackFit incorporates a large variety of options to help you take responsibility for your health and give you the tools to heal yourself. Medical doctors, Chiropractors , physical therapists, massage therapists are there to offer a wider variety of care to get you better.I can’t wait to continue my care here at BackFit.read less

I was having a hard time sitting and was in constant pain with my tail bone. I also have Neuropathy in my feet. I'm now able to sit for long periods of time without pain and most days I have no pain in my tail bone. Everyone is friendly and I love coming in when Hannah is working. She is so bubbly and no matter what mood I come in with, I always leave smiling. I have been to Chiroprator's before but never enjoyed them or stayed with them. They also have the best massage therapist, Joel. I can't say enough good things about the staff at the Phoenix location. Oh and Veronica is awesome too!read less
