My journey to Back Specialist took time but when I found it I knew there was no other option. Growing up I was constantly involved in sports and my mom, being a proactive parent, always brought me in to see a Back Specialist. So at a very young age I began getting adjusted and learning the philosophy and still I never thought of being a chiropractor. Fast forward to my Junior year at Central Michigan University, 2 days following an awkward slip and fall on the ice my low back and pelvis totally seized up. I was in severe pain, couldn't sit, and could hardly walk. So I went to see a chiropractor and after a week of adjustments I was back on my feet, feeling great and still the thought of becoming a Back Specialist never crossed my mind. At the end of that school year I was at a crossroads, I was going into my senior year and had no career path. I had previously studied sports medicine, physical therapy, and teaching, but none of these professions called to me. So one day while pondering my future it hit like a bolt of lightning, I was to become a Livonia MI chiropractor.

Named after its developer, Dr. James Cox, this highly-effective technique combines osteopathic principles with the specific, highly-directed approach used in Back Specialist. The combination offers a conservative resolution of low back and leg pain that often averts the need for surgery. We deploy this method in our Livonia MI office.

We use the latest Back Specialist technology to help relieve the effects of back pain due to herniated and degenerated discs. Since discs are constantly under weight-bearing pressure, they can be slow to heal. By gently "stretching" your spine, we help relieve pressure and enhance healing in Livonia MI. This is called disc decompression.

When Back Specialist patients learn that we use laser therapy in our Livonia MI practice, they have visions of a powerful, steel-cutting beam of light. The "cold" laser we use has only a tiny fraction of the power. Instead, its value comes from the frequency of the light it emits, not its intensity.

The brain and the spinal cord make up the central nervous system. The spinal cord transmits sensory messages to the brain and motor messages from the brain. Sensory nerves carry messages from receptors to the brain. If you touch a hot iron, pain receptors tell your brain to move your hand. Motor nerves send signals from the brain to the muscles in the body. These Back Specialist nerves help us to do things such as walk in Livonia MI, kick a ball or pick up an object.
