Back and Leg Pain

Written by DrBrad. Posted in Chiropractic

Back and Leg PainToday a patient walked in the door with back and leg pain. This happens every day. However, this was a little different. I noticed during the examination that he had foot drop. (This is when the foot doesn’t raise.) I asked him during the exam/history about when his foot start having this problem. He stated, a personal trainer online (y-tube) gave advice for back pain. He followed the advice and he began to experience leg pain and this new foot drop problem immediately after the exercise.

Recently, I’ve noticed many patients coming in from back pain due to wrong information. Many patients are going online a listening to personal trainers advice on back pain. Don’t get me wrong, I love personal trainers, but giving advice on treating back pain should not come from them. I should know, I was a certified personal trainer for many years prior to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractor. Please get professional advice first. After digital radiographic examination, this patient was informed he had a congenital fracture in his back called a Spondylolisthesis. The information the personal trainer gave this patient injured him, and could have paralyzed him. Please, get a true diagnosis from a Doctor of Chiropractor or a good Orthopedist before treatment. Most of the time a personal trainer can be very helpful. But they should always follow the advise of the Doctor first. By the way, this patient will be fine without using surgery and pain medications.

    If you have an existing lower back condition, go for a car with an automatic transmission. Shifting gears is an activity that you repeat dozens of times a day that can harm your already injured back, leading to further injury. If you have the option, ditch the stick. In addition to things that you can do about your driving, lifestyle changes can also help address back pain. Try to be more active; favor exercise movements that target your core areas, like your abdominal muscles and lower back. Eat foods that have anti-inflammatory qualities, and try to get at least six hours of sleep a day.
