Chronic Low Back Pain Relief Testimonial: The Mechanic

 

 

Where it Started!

Jay (name changed due to HIPPA) dealt with leg pain on and off. On top of that, he is living with chronic low back pain as well. When he finally had enough and realized he needed help he was experiencing numbness in his lower leg and foot. Jay is a 47 year old Auto Body Mechanic. He is a harder worker bending over or getting on the ground to fix cars everyday. This career took a toll on his back and his quality of life.

What Worked? 

Therapeutic Wobble Chair warm-up exercises with vibration and cervical traction. Once warmed up, he used the Pettibon System’s PT-5 decompression table with a combination of lumbar and cervical traction. This patient did this three times a week for three months with no manual manipulation.

At home there are a variety of exercises that he completes. He uses the Wobble Chair, Cervical Traction Unit, as well at the Pettibon Weighting System, and Spinal Molding. Jay does these exercises twice daily for three months. He continues to do them as he works hard to maintain his correction and continues to live pain free.
