Lower Back Pain And Sciatica


Read Success Stories on How Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist, Dr. Michlin, Has Treated Low Back Pain and Sciatica Pain

Lower back pain and sciatica are two common pain conditions that can have a serious and detrimental impact on your quality of life. From cleaning up the house to playing with our kids, this type of personal injury can wreak havoc on our ability to complete ordinary activities. Our Fort Worth chiropractor and Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist Dr. Chris Michlin does more than just sympathize with our patients’ pain. As a sciatica sufferer himself, Dr. Michlin understands just how frustrating and debilitating this pain can truly be.

Rather than waiting until pain strikes, Dr. Michlin finds that a proactive approach to pain relief helps to stop pain from happening in the first place. Now, he no longer experiences painful sciatica episodes. As the only Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor in North Texas and Fort Worth, Dr. Chris Michlin has helped hundreds of patients stop living with lower back pain or sciatica and return to wellness.

While sciatica pain and lower back pain are two separate pain conditions, they are both linked to incorrect spinal alignment. Dr. Michlin Atlas Orthogonal adjustments are a safe and effective treatment technique for correcting spinal alignment without the need for medication or surgery.

Atlas Orthogonal adjustments treat the root cause for your pain and improve all aspects of your health.

Why Our Fort Worth Sciatica Treatment is Different: Atlas Orthogonal Adjustments Eliminates Pain at the Source

Our approach to Fort Worth sciatica treatment is different from other healthcare professionals, including many other chiropractors. That’s because we focus on bringing correct alignment back to the spine starting with the Atlas vertebra, the top vertebra in the spine, and move on to full spine care when the atlas stays in proper alignment. Many of our patients are surprised to discover that a misalignment with this top vertebra may be the real cause for their lower back pain.

To understand why, it can be helpful to think of the spine as a chain. When the top link in the chain is out of alignment, the entire chain falls out of alignment, too.

For optimal spinal alignment, the Atlas Orthogonal vertebra must be in the orthogonal (neutral) position. Once this vertebra becomes misaligned, the body has no choice but to compensate by incorrectly aligning other body parts, including the head, a high shoulder, a high hip, and a shortened leg. The result: a multitude of pain symptoms throughout the body, including lower back pain and sciatica pain, as well as headaches, migraines, shoulder pain, and neck pain. When the body is in so much pain, those with fibromyalgia only see heightened symptoms.

Atlas Orthogonal Adjusting is an innovative, life-changing pain treatment technique that brings correct alignment back to the Atlas vertebra. Keeping this vertebra in its natural orthogonal position allows the rest of the spine to return to correct alignment, too.

By treating Fort Worth lower back pain patients with the Atlas Orthogonal Adjusting Instrument as well as full spine adjustments, many Fort Worth lower back pain patients begin to see a dramatic improvement in only a few visits. Many patients also report the reduction of other illness symptoms including high blood pressure, neck pain, migraine headache pain, sciatica, and other illnesses. Those suffering from fibromyalgia and many different neurological disorders have also seen marked improvement after treatment with an AO chiropractor.

Fort Worth patients suffering from high blood pressure, neurological disorders, chronic pain (fibromyalgia), chronic migraine headache pain, back pain, neck pain, auto injury symptoms, sciatica, or more can contact Back To Health Family Chiropractic at 817.810.9111 to find out how we might be able to help,
