Low back pain is one of the most common problems Americans face. Low back pain affects many different people at different times in their lives. Low back pain is generally located in the Lumbar Spine. This pain can be brought on by a slip and fall, bending in the wrong direction, weak core muscles, sciatica, lifting improperly, or frequent repetitive incorrect use/ motion. Individuals such as David Garcia know what lumbar pain feels like. David Garcia has a job that requires him to be constantly bending down and using his lumbar spine. Mr. Garcia suffered with back pain for years before he got treatment. At his worst, he reports that he could not walk without having excruciating pain and needing to sit down for breaks. This kind of pain can be debilitating and does not help when work requires you to be using your back, such as Mr. Garcias does. This pain eventually brought him into see Dr. Alexander Jimenez after his sister had been treated. Mr. Garcia saw the improvements that the treatment was providing him with. Dr. Alexander Jimenez has a lot of experience with lumbar pain and knows that in order for the pain to be properly treated, multiple techniques need to be used. These techniques include but are not limited to traction, massage, heat, exercise, and manual adjustment. Mr. Garcia has been seeing Dr. Jimenez for multiple sessions and when his pain starts to flare back up, he comes in to get treatment. One thing that Mr. Garcia appreciates about Dr. Jimenez is not only his knowledge but his desire to truly help his patients. With this, Dr. Jimenez takes time with each patient to hear their pain, come up with personalized treatment plans, and explain to patients why they are having the pain and why he is performing the treatment. – Kenna Vaughn, Senior Health Coach
