Back Pain Relief Lansing MI
Drugs can silence the painful alarm, but overlook the cause.
Pain of any kind is a signal that something’s amiss. Some people silence their symptoms with a pain reliever and ignore the message. But that would be like removing the battery to quiet a smoke detector!
Two Common Causes
The nerve-rich facet joints on the back side of each spinal bone are a common cause of back pain. The pain can be a sign these interlocking “fingers” aren’t moving right.
The discs between spinal bones can be involved, too. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves.
We’ve helped many people with safe and natural chiropractic care. However, other choices include:
- Ignore it (spinal problems may worsen)
- Bed rest (may prolong the problem)
- Therapy (stresses malfunctioning joints)
- Medicine (numbs the body)
- Surgery (the most serious last resort)
The Chiropractic Approach
Specific chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, pain can ease and better stability can return.

Contracted Leg Length Test
Have the test subject wear a pair of hard soled shoes and lie across a bed, face down, with arms relaxed at each side. (The head must remain straight down throughout the test.)
Apply equal pressure with both thumbs to the arches of each shoe. Are both legs of equal length when the bottoms of the shoes are parallel?
Bend both legs to a 90° angle so the bottoms of the shoes are parallel with the floor. Does one leg appear shorter?
A difference of greater than 1/4” in any of the positions is clinically significant. Uneven leg length is a common sign of spinal problems that often respond to chiropractic care. Find out if we can help. Call Rassel-Daigneault Holistic Health now to arrange a more thorough examination!
