The Backbone Difference
Find Out How People- Exactly Like You - Are Fixing Their Pain & Getting Their Life Back!
Dear Friend,

Are you done with putting up with it?

Pain... is a curious thing.

It is simply stunning how much we can take. 

Until we can't. 

We put up with pain for days, or months, or years and end up trying medications, therapies, heat packs, cold packs, or more...
At some point, enough is enough. 

When we have finally had it, we want to be pain-free NOW.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say, if you've read this far, you've had enough with living with pain, and you need help.

If this is true, then I am happy to tell you that this may be the most impactful thing you read today.
Last year the Lancet published new research which demonstrated that medications, injections, and surgery should be your last line of defense when trying to get rid or chronic pain.

They reported:

 The rate of disability due to back pain has risen by 50% since 1990 and...

Back pain now affects half a billion people worldwide.

That is a massive human suffering issue.

Unfortunately, this is happening for a very important reason.
The common approach is to use drugs to reduce inflammation, numb the pain and relax the muscles.

Those professionals are failing to ask a very simple question.

Why is the inflamed, why do they hurt, why are the muscles in spasm?

When we fail to look to the cause of the problem, we cannot see the forest through the trees.

Consider for a moment. An architect can look at a set of blueprints and see that a bridge is sound and is able to do its job. Your internal structure follows the same laws. 

Degeneration happens because the living machine is loaded wrong and moving wrong. Wear and tear are the logical and sadly, painful result.
Treatments like over the counter medications, prescription medcations, injections often provide only temporary relief because they fail to address the cause of the problem.

Big Pharma has made drug manufacturing one of the most profitable industries in the world today. Keep that in mind as we go over the following.

Did you know? 

Prescription rates for opioids (like oxycodone, percocets, and vicoden) have increased by from

112 million prescriptions in 1992 to

249 million prescriptions in 2015. That's big business, folks.

Long term use of NSAIDS (like ibuprofen) has been found to be just as hazardous as vioxx, which was taken off the shelves in 2004 for being associated with increased cases of heart attack and CARDIAC DEATH.

Heavy user of NSAIDS were found to have an increased risk of heart attack (by 33%) and doubled the risk for heart failure.
A word from the experts.

In 2010, researchers out of the University of Cincinnati school of medicine reviewed the records from 1,450 patients in the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation database who had been diagnosed with disc degeneration or disc herniation or radiculopathy, which is a nerve condition that causes pain or tingling or weakness in the legs.

Half of the patients had surgery that fused together two or more lower back bones in the hopes of curing low back pain. 

The other half with the exact same problem had no surgery.  

Two years later: 

- 26% of the people who had surgery were able to go back to work compared to 67% percent of patients who did not have surgery.

- 27% percent had to have a second surgery within 2 years. 

- 11% had Permanent disability compared to 2% of the people who did not have surgery. 

- 41% increase in the use of painkillers in surgical patients 

- 76% continuing the use of opioids use after surgery. 

- 17 surgical patients died by the end of the study.

The study's lead author stated:

"Lumbar fusion for the diagnoses of disc degeneration, disc herniation, and/or radiculopathy in a Workers' Compensation setting is associated with significant increase in disability, opiate use, prolonged work loss, and poor return to work status." 

We’re shouting this from the rooftops folks, please consider less invasive protocols first before you permanently change the body that God gave you.
The harmful side effects and addictive quality of these medications or the risk involved with surgery can be a dangerous course for anyone.

And the promise of a surgical cure can be persued which has been associated with the rise of failed back surgery syndrome today.

That's why we are passionate about the non narcotic, non surgical solutions provided at Backbone Wellness Institute. 

1. At Backbone we address the pain by treating the underlying cause.

2. We strengthen the structure to fight degeneration.

3. Improved function allows the body to heal properly.
Motion Study Digital X-Ray
One of the main reasons MRI can miss a proper diagnosis is they are usually taken lying down. 

What happens when your body is standing up and underload?

At Backbone Wellness Institute we take load bearing digital X-rays where we can see in black and white any soft tissue damage and/or instability that would be missed any other way.

Using this technology we can see structural weakness, and see why a disc is deteriorating, not just that it is. 
When we have a true picture of problems like, soft tissue instabilities, and a segment by segment vision of what is what is working and what is not, only then we can see where your body needs help.

Only then are we able to devise a plan of attack to fix the underlying cause of your problem. Only when your structure becomes sound, is your body able to heal itself. And when it does the results can be fantastic.
