“Can Chiropractic Help Me Be More Productive at Work?”

Chiropractic Delafield WI Jeff Testimonial

"For months before coming to Connect Chiropractic, I had been experiencing pretty chronic mid and lower back pain. The longer I would sit or stand, the worse the pain would become, and it was definitely beginning to negatively affect my productivity at work. I decided to come to check out Connect once my performance began to suffer, and I am very happy that I did!

My results since coming to see the doctors at Connect have been substantial! While my back still hurts from time to time, the pain is not nearly as consistent as it was prior to starting about 90 days ago. I know that everything takes time, and I'm still a chiropractic patient because I don't want to go backward after all the progress I have made so far. I would definitely say that chiropractic care has had a positive influence on my life because I am now able to focus on the right things in life instead of expending my energy on my pain!

The office is very clean and efficient, and the staff is friendly. They have been awesome! Dr. Alex is an amazing guy, very charismatic, and has excellent attention to detail. Overall, I am very happy with how I'm progressing! I would absolutely recommend chiropractic care to others and have already referred a good friend of mine who is now a patient at Connect as well!”

Disc Bulges and Herniation

A disc bulge or herniation stems from the outer edges of the discs that are located in between the vertebrae. These outer edges become damaged which leads to a gelatin-like mass squeezing out and creating a bulge. This often painful issue is more common than most people think. Despite this, it can often go undetected as some patients feel no pain. The pain is determined by the size and location of the herniation within the back. The damaged disc can potentially irritate nerves around it which can cause a stabbing or shooting pain sensation and even issues within the legs.

It is essential this condition is found as soon as possible as the risk of further damage is possible with this issue. Connect Chiropractic will completely and carefully examine your back in order to understand the intensity of your condition along with creating a customized treatment plan to stop the potentially worsening effects of a herniation and relieve the pain associated with it.


Subluxation is defined as the misalignment within the vertebral column. Stress, injury, and toxins can all be responsible for the misalignment. Generally speaking, subluxations are very painful and have the potential to affect the lifestyle and daily movements of an individual. Despite subluxations being one of the most overlooked back pain issues, a chiropractor is taught to use specific and effective methods and adjustment techniques in order to locate and precisely correct a misalignment.

Muscular Sprains and Tendon or Ligament Strains

A strain or sprain usually originates during a task or activity that our body is not used to doing. Accidents are also capable of causing this condition. The back is particularly susceptible to these strains or sprains as stretching farther than normal or attempting to lift while twisting can both cause this issue. If this does occur, high levels of pain and swelling and bruising is expected. But the good news is that these strains and sprains usually resolve themselves with a simple realignment of the spine and in most cases a chiropractic visit is an appropriate treatment for this condition.

Stress and Back Pain

Recurring stress can have very harmful effects on the human body and is capable of producing back pain and leading to hypertension as well. As stress hormones are released throughout the body, back pain can arise as the hormones produce tension and muscle spasms. The tension generally accumulates in areas known as trigger points. Professional assistance is needed to work with these trigger points as they can produce excruciating pain. Chiropractors have been trained to work with you to eliminate the stress from these trigger points. A personalized approach will be created in order to eliminate the recurrence of this pain and stress.

Other Issues that Cause Back Pain

There are a variety of issues that can be responsible for back pain. Lower back pain can originate from obesity, arthritis, kidney stones, or a urinary tract infection. These conditions are harmful if left untreated for a long period and must be treated as soon as possible to prevent long-term health issues. Chiropractors in Wauwatosa WI and Delafield WI have been taught to identify these issues and provide the most effective treatment plan. A simple chiropractic adjustment has the potential to help greatly with many of these common issues.
