Patients come into our Costa Mesa office asking if I can help them with their midback pain, only to find out that I’ll be asking them questions about their digestion and will be linking it to their middle back pain. You should know that your brain and spinal cord are part of the most important system in your body- your nervous system! Nerves go through the spine and then to EVERY cell in your body, all organs, muscles, joints, vessles, etc.. Most of the nerves that come out of the middle portion of the spine control and regulate activities of the digestive system. So if you come in with poor posture, hunched midback and or some midback pain, I will be asking you whether you are constipated or if you have regular and balanced digestive system. Call 949.387.1333 for a free consultation.
Most common type of Sciatica is basically a lower back (lumbar) problem that has progressed into degeration of the nerves coming out of the spine and effecting nerves that innervate the muscles of the buttocks, legs and feet. A lower back pain that is not being taken care of can result in tingling and numbness, weakness, loss of senstation, and eventually atrophy of the muscles. Here at our Costa Mesa office we see many patients come in with sciatica that is caused by a variety of entrapments, inflammations, scar tissue, or hypertrophy. Almost every time it has started with a minor pain in the lower back or buttock that didn’t get taken care of. If you are suffering from sciatica, make sure you are taking omega 3 supplemets and ice the painful area. Heat may feel good, but long term will attrach all the inflammation to the area.

Once again I have another patient who has tried every other doctor for her migraine headaches. I see cases like hers almost daily. Some need nutritional restrictions and advices, and some need a few adjustments. I have cure enough of them that at times makes me want to be a Migraine Doctor only! Daily, severe, and debilitating migraine headaches and the last place that a lot of doctors look at is the structure of the neck. To me it’s a no brainer. If there is no pathology in the brain, and they’ve been tested for food allergies, and it all shows negative. The structure of the neck is extremely important specially up at the top vertebra where the brain and the rest of the spine (nervous system) comes together. A handful of chiropractors can actually look at an x-ray of the cervical spine (neck) measure the abnormality. Those who are trained in corrective care can check the nervous system and it’s flowing into and from the brain and spinal cord. If the nerves are being stretched more than normal than likely to have migraine headaches, general fatigue, insomnia, and a list of other things.

Being in the middle of one of the worse economic crisis’ of all times, stress management is important as stress creates free radicals, accelerates aging process, creates pain and inflammation and those stress hormones can make you gain weight. To beat stress here is what I do and recommend to my patients more and more these days:
-Take a yoga class/ dance/ kickboxing (whichever you like best)
- Meditate, or sit still and quiet your mind
- Go for a walk- there are numerous places to go for a hike in Orange County and the weather is beatiful these days
- Drink a ton of water and stay away from sugar
- Go to your chiropractor for an adjustment or an acupuncture treatment! They help.
They are common sense and simple but trust me they work! I know first hand.

We treat hundreds of new cases of disc herniation and lower back pain that is associated with nerve entrapments weekly in our Costa Mesa/Newport Beach wellness practice. I spend a lot of time looking for and reading research articles as well as most modern health and wellness trends. Disc Decompression therapy is one of the most commonly used system and protocol for herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, nerve entrapment and simple lumbalgia. The protocol includes decompression therapy, streches, exercises, physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, as well as a nutritional guide.
Only a handful of physicians use exercise as part of therapy or healing protocol which is saddening. At our office in Orange County, exercise is a major part of healing, strengthening, and pain management. Patients who do Spinal Decompression in our office are on a specific and individualized exercise program to better help their progress. In a lot of cases, we work with personal trainers who are highly educated and trained in working with clients who are in pain or have disabilities.
