"The once a month visits have kept my back from going out for 1 ½ years. I would recommend this schedule to everyone.
These treatments have helped me greatly, and when I do "over do it" my healing time and pain level are much lower than when I did not come once a month!"

"I used to have headaches daily, since I've started chiropractic treatments I may have a headache once a month. These treatments have made my daily life a lot easier.
Thank you Dr. Kohl and employees for helping me with my headaches. My family and students also appreciate your help because now I'm always in a better mood and headache free."
"I originally sought out chiropractic care because my neck was hurting so bad I couldn't sleep. Within several visits that was feeling much better and as I continued with maintenance visits over the years we dealt with other issues. My job as a programmer keeps me sitting for hours and I am not as active as I should be, so they've helped me through several mid and lower back issues. When my left shoulder start losing mobility, Dr Kohl got me doing therapy which got it moving again very quickly. That was during an especially busy time in my life and they were great working with my schedule. I've injured my knee twice and they've helped with that. I also believe that regular neck and wrist/hand adjustments have kept me from getting carpel tunnel. My hands used to ache, especially at night. I don't have much trouble with them now.I also suffered (and still do to a much lesser extent) a condition called Costochondritis(inflammation of the ribs and the cartilage in the ribcage). While I don't think chiropractic can cure it, I firmly believe it helps. Soon after I started chiropractic I stopped taking Celebrex which I had taken for about year.Very early on they recommended a massage session and I was hooked. The combination of a once a month adjustment and a once a month massage has been the right combination.
I believe chiropractic has a place in everyone's health care and Reynoldsburg Chiropractic has been a God-send for me."
Eighty percent of Americans experience one form of back pain or another during the course of their lives. More men over the age of 45 are disabled by back pain than any other condition. It is the third most common reason for surgeries. Because of this, people complaining of back pain cannot be easily diagnosed. This is because the spine is such an incredibly complex structure of bones, muscles, nerves, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Injury or disease affecting any one or more of these structures can often trigger an episode of pain.
Lower back pain is often caused by a muscle strain. The erector spinae, or large paired muscles in the lower back that help keep your spine erect, can become inflamed and spasm. In more serious cases, the pain may be caused by a degenerative condition, such as arthritis, disc disease, or disc herniation.
A degenerative disc condition can sometimes cause a chain reaction of other events in your spine. When a disc is not in its proper place, or is malformed from disease or some other condition, it can allow additional undue pressure on other healthy structures, such as neighboring discs, nerves, muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons.
Rest, ice or heat therapy, and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine, such as aspirin, are often the first course of treatment for mild lower back pain. This allows your muscles to return to their normal position and begin to heal.
Because the thoracic spine is the sturdiest part of the spine, it is less prone to injury. That said, upper back pain, while less common than lower back pain, is often caused by irritation of the muscles or a problem with a joint. Other less common causes of upper back pain include herniated or degenerative discs.
However, rest for a sore back should be kept to no more than two weeks. Otherwise, the muscles in the lower back begin to atrophy and can become significantly weak, leaving you open to further undue pain and injury.
