Non surgical help for low back pain in Portland

Leg Pain can be trouble. So can numbness and tingling in your legs. Weakness in your feet. All these are signs of inflammation in your lower back nerves.

We have successfully treated thousands of low back injuries, non-surgically, using safe and effective Chiropractic treatments, coupled with Physical therapy and exercise rehabilitation which we also perform in our Portland clinic.

We do the same for neck injuries to the spine, including treatment of whiplash injury, or car accident injury treatment, which can lead to pain and tingling in arms and hands.

Whether you experience lower back pain, leg pain, neck pain or arm pain, the causes of the pain are similar: irritation of the nerves that exit the spinal cord, getting inflamed by the injury to the surrounding back joints and spinal vertebra, sometimes due to injury to the disc. Sometimes due to ligament injury and small vertebra slippage during motion, sometimes due to worn joints, with bone spurs, or narrowing getting injured. Sometimes due to all of the above. Spinal stenosis, facet joint hypertrophy, spondylolisthesis, disc herniation, sciatic neuralgia, radiculopathy, brachial neuritis are all technical terms used to describe this sort of nerve irritation to the spine that we treat.

Dr Agger will examine you on your first visit, perform the appropriate imaging and tell you if you are a candidate for successful low back treatment, or successful neck treatment. We help over 95% of patients that we initiate treatment on. We have such a high success rate because we integrate both chiropractic, exercise, lifestyle, Physical Therapy modalities, nutrition and diet to help low back pain.

We often work with many other Doctors in different speciality fields, such as primary care Medical Doctors, Neurosurgeons, Naturopaths, Acupuncturists and Nurse Practitioners.

Although we specialize in non surgical spine care and rehabilitation in Portland, Oregon, rarely, we have to refer patients to neurosurgery. When we do, we want you to go to the best surgeons and have the best, most effective procedures performed. Recently, I sat down with Darrell Brett, M.D., Neurosurgeon, who I have known for over 20 years, on new surgical techniques to enhance those outcomes for those 5% of patients we cannot help, when dealing with spinal and facet stenosis.

I was impressed with the advances in surgical technology that means that a spinal vertebra fusion is not always the best option. Implant cervical discs, and posterior facet spacers, shown in picture model I am holding above, decompress the joint while retaining mobility in the spinal joints. Good news.

Even better news is that Dr. Brett shares my philosophy: Non surgical Conservative Chiropractic care first. Surgery is last resort. Rehab with Conservative Chiropractic, exercise & therapies.

If you or a loved one are looking for help with arm pain, help with leg pain, help with neck pain or help with low back pain don’t put it off any longer. Find out if you are a candidate for non surgical back pain relief near you.
