Kent, Wa. Doctor Reveals the Highly Effective Treatment Protocol that has been helping people like you Finally Overcome Long Term Low Back Pain.
…without Expensive Medications or Surgeries.
So… As you age, what are the most likely culprits that have caused low back pain and kept you from experiencing life to the fullest?
One of the most frustrating things in the world is not being able to participate in life’s most enjoyable activities because your body isn’t cooperating. An unfortunate fact is that many people in the world today have to miss out on life because of debilitating low back pain.
Many Low Back Pain sufferers are quick to blame their condition on advancing age. While age does play a factor, there is usually a deeper cause to why their low back is in such bad shape. The good news is that once you understand the usual core causes of low back pain in people as they age, you can actually do something about it with some very simple and inexpensive treatments.
What are the Most Likely Causes of Chronic
Low Back Pain as You Age?
Arthritis in the Hips or Spine:
When your hips or low back are injured or aren’t functioning properly, your body does it’s best to adapt to the situation so that you can keep moving. In the beginning this adaptation takes the form of muscles compensating for the issue. Over time the muscles can become weak and can no longer handle adapting to the stress on the body.
When muscle adaptation starts to fail, your body makes a more permanent adaptation to the stress that is being put on it. To do this, your body will start to change the structure of the skeleton in order to help. This is part of what causes the process of degenerative arthritis in your body. While this “adaptation” helps your body deal with the stress that is being put on it, it also causes some very permanent issues that will eventually turn into chronic low back issues.
Bulging or Herniated Lower Spinal Discs:
When you put continued stress on the “shock absorbing structures” in between the bony parts of your spine, they can start to shrink or perform in a way that isn’t healthy. Think of your discs as balloons that are getting constantly squeezed in one direction all the time as you go about your day. The difference between bulging and herniated discs is usually the difference between the need for aggressive care or surgery (this can be determined via an exam and advanced imaging).
Leg Issues that end up Causing Lower Back Issues:
Sometimes low back pain is simply a symptom of your low back adapting to issues in your knees and feet. Many times correcting the knee or foot issue is enough to take an enormous amount of stress off of your low back.
So now that you’ve learned a little bit about some of the most common causes of Low Back Pain as you age, what can you do to deal with those issues and start relieving that pain that is being caused (and get back to functioning at a higher level)?
The Treatment Protocol We’ve Been Successfully Using
to Help People Get Relief from
Their Low Back Pain.
Kent East Chiropractic
Low Back Pain Treatment Protocol:
Over the last 28 years, we’ve focused our office on helping people beat low back pain. While some offices focus on being a “catch all” provider, we have been dialing in our procedure for helping patients who suffer from a few specific ailments.
After working with hundreds of people who have been afflicted with low back pain for years, we’ve developed a treatment protocol that is specifically tailored to your body. Because of this focus we’ve developed a gentle and medication free Low Back Pain treatment that has been very successful.
Our Special Treatment Protocol uses a combination of Gentle Spinal and Hip Adjustments, Foot Leveling Technology, our non-surgical Spinal Disc Decompression and Rehab Protocol, as well as a Focused personal Home Rehabilitation program.
The Careful Combination of these treatments can help you overcome years of wear and tear that you may have put your body through. Our Low Back Pain Treatment Protocol works well because we push your body only as far as it needs to go at each treatment. We take special care to never overdo it or push your body too fast.
Most of the low back issues we see took years to develop and we make sure that we give your body the adequate amount of time that it needs to adapt to treatment. Our success rate with this condition is based on the fact that we always allow your body to do what it needs to do. No two patient’s low back conditions are alike and we make sure that we treat each condition as such. This is critical in making sure that you heal as quickly as possible, while staying safe.

Highly recommend Dr McCord and staff: Jessica, Samantha and Rachel!”
“After trying a couple of other places closer to home, Dr. McCord of Kent East Chiropractic was the only one who was willing to see me, even though he already had a full schedule. I was unable to walk related to excruciating hip pain and he adjusted his schedule to fit me in. I was able to walk out of the appointment with significantly less pain, after therapy. Now after my fourth visit, I’m feeling better than I have in 2 years!”
