Lower Back Pain

Many patients enter my office each day with different grades of lower back pain from mild to severe.   Each patient basically says the same thing to me but in their own words.  “Dr Bracco, make my pain go away, make me feel better.”  The truth of the matter is that these patient have been taking medication for inflammation and pain with little to no relief.  They have had X-Rays,  MRI’s, Nerve tests and more.  They have gone from their primary physician to Orthopedic to Neurologist with no help.  In Chiropractic, we have a unique saying that we can hang our hat on.  Structure determines Function.  I read the same reports which describe disc degeneration, arthritic spurring,  bulging discs, herniated discs etc., etc.   I look at the same X-Rays  and MRI’s and yes, I see all that they report but I see more than that.  I analyze the structure of the spine and with that lies Chiropractic’s specialty.  I see a vertebrae turning 2 mm to the right or left, on a angle etc, etc.. Correct the structure and improve the function.  No one, AND I MEAN NO ONE, can correct the structure of the spine with their hands like a Chiropractor. So,  if your tired of treating the symptom and taking something for the pain day in and day out, then I recommend that you make an appointment to see if your spinal structure is causing your pain.

Lower Back Pain


Back and Leg Pain/Chiropractic and Expectant Moms by Bracco Chiropractic Center

Many pregnant moms walk around uncomfortable for several or nine months not  realizing  that chiropractic adjustments can offer great relief.  That lower back pain or tingling burning sensation that radiates down the leg from  pressure caused by the weight of the fetus can be significantly reduced or even eliminated from gentle chiropractic adjustments. I have a special adjusting table in which the abdominal section of the table drops away  so it does not  exert any pressure to the abdominal area. Many moms have told me they don’t know how they could have ever made it through the pregnancy without their adjustments! My own wife was pregnant with twins and had an annoying sciatica problem that became almost non-existent after her adjustments. By the way, she had a full term natural pregnancy with two healthy boys- one 8 lbs. and one 7 lbs.! So if you’re pregnant and just waiting for the nine months to end so you can find relief-don’t wait any longer. Come visit the Bracco Chiropractic  Center today for your adjustments and start feeling good again and enjoy the remainder of your pregnancy! My office is located in Heartland Village near the Staten Island Mall, call  for an appointment at 718-494-9390.
