Initial Examination

This 72-year old man came to our clinic with lower back pain that radiated into his buttocks, as well as digestive system problems that required the use of a medication called Prevacid. His back pain was so severe that he could not stand in an upright position.

Findings/Discussion: You can see from his “Before” x-ray that he had a large amount of forward head posture that was putting tension on his spinal cord and nerves.

Progressive Examination Performed After Being Under Care for 3 Months

At his first progressive exam 3 months later, he reported an 85% reduction in his lower back pain, and no radiation of pain into his buttocks.

Progressive Examination Performed After Being Under Care for 12 Months

X-rayAt his 12 month progressive exam, he reported that although his digestive problems were not yet resolved, he did report a 100% improvement in his lower back pain.

Findings/Discussion: As you can see on his “After” x-ray, his forward head posture was reduced by 30mm. This means there is a lot less damaging tension on the spinal cord.


Progressive Examination Performed After Being Under Care for 18 Months

X-rayAt his 18 month progressive exam, we note that there is even further improvement in his alignment. The patient reports that he is thrilled with his progress so far.
