Low back pain is something no one wants to experience. Constant low back pain can start to influence everyday life and activities. When low back starts to take over, it can make it hard to enjoy the simpilar things in life. With this being said, David Garcia has first-hand experience with low back pain. He works as a maintenance person and is required to do a lot of bending and picking up heavy items. He recalls that his back pain has been ongoing for about two years. Eventually, it got to a point where it was painful to tie his shoes or bend down to put on his pants. David Garcia had heard about Dr. Jimenez through his sister who had previously gotten treatment. David Garcia came in to see Dr. Jimenez and he started to notice a difference instantly. David Garcia is on his third appointment with Dr. Jimenez and his pain is not completely gone but he states that it is so much better. At a time while dealing with his lumbar pain, he was not able to walk long distances without taking breaks. Even sitting for long periods of time would start to aggravate him. Now, he is able to perform his daily job duties more efficiently and does not have to take breaks. Dr. Jimenez takes time with his patients and focuses his care around them. He takes the time to explain to his patients what is happening and details about their injury and the treatment they will have and how it will help them. Part of the treatment David Garcia received is a medical massage performed by a licensed massage therapist that will loosen up the muscles and promote blood flow and healing to the area. Dr. Jimenez makes sure his patients have the highest standard of care. -Kenna Vaughn, Senior Health Coach

And where I’m at is where the administration and two small schools where children from zero to four years old. They go there. The pain in my lower back has affected me a lot. Everywhere, like the basic things like putting on my shorts, my pants, tying up my shoes, getting into the car.
