As a farmer in Louisiana, hard work, heavy lifting, etc. were part of making a living. I’ve had bad back aches all my life. Rest and exercise eased the problems in youth, but by retirement (at age 71) I had severe pain – mostly from a pinched sciatic nerve in the left leg that had me walking with a cane – at time a walker – with constant pain. A sports doctor in Louisiana x-rayed and gave me a pain killer and a muscle relaxant, both of which are up for law suits later on.

A few treatments here at Oakland Spine, and I have been walking without a cane and virtually pain free for around a year. Single exercises keep the spine in alignment with regular visits to keep reminding me of how to prevent a recurrence of the joint problems.

I do recommend Oakland Spine to anyone who seems skeptical of chiropractic treatment. It does work!
