I am a 52 yr old very active male that has been suffering from lower back pain for as long as I can remember.  If I’m on my feet- especially just standing in one place- for over 30 min, my lower back tightens up.  I exercise 5-6 days a week- jogging ~ 3 miles, stepper machine, weights and walking 18 holes on a golf course once per week during summer.  The back pain is always there, and although it hasn’t prevented me from staying active, it was always in the back of my mind (no pun intended). I’m constantly trying to stretch out my back.

I visited another chiropractic facility that focuses on back pain.  They prescribed an MRI which showed a slight bulging disc and promised they could improve my situation in 4-6 mos. After visiting 3x per week for 1.5 hrs per session- being put in a tight harness, hung from above and stretched horizontally on a table, I felt slight improvement- but not enough to continue.

I met Dr Landholm at the PGA Superstore on Golf Rd one Sat in May (while being treated at the aforementioned practice). She showed me how my muscle imbalance was probably a result of misalignment and was causing my pain.  I told her that I would continue with my current treatment for a few more months.  Since the improvement wasn’t occurring, a few months later I called Dr Landholm and made an appointment.

I had never heard of NUCCA but learned a lot in my first visit. It certainly didn’t seem that adjusting one vertebra would make that much difference on my lower back.  I was impressed with the precision they used in taking x-rays and measuring my vertebrae.  Dr Landholm and Dr Barone were confident their procedures would work. I was skeptical but willing to try.

After analyzing my x-rays Dr Barone did the first adjustment. I was shocked that it took five minutes and was painless.  He asked me to walk across the floor and let me know if I noticed a difference. I did not expect one adjustment to make a difference and I wasn’t sure if it did. He said some feel a difference immediately and others take more time. I must say, later that day my lower back pain seemed to subside.

Over the last 10 mos the adjustments have been less frequent- in some cases I’ve gone 4-5 weeks without an adjustment. My back pain definitely has reduced, but it’s not completely eliminated. After a round of golf (walking) it is definitely much better than it was a year ago. And I don’t feel it nearly as much as I did when I started treatment. I’m hopeful that a few more months of keeping me aligned will help get me back to pain free.

The office staff is very professional, helpful and friendly. I’ve already referred a coworker and would recommend anyone with back issues to make an appointment.
