Does Chiropractic Care Work?
Does Acupuncture Really Work?
Yes! Acupuncture is a well-proven, research-supported health science. And in our Omaha chiropractic practice, acupuncture techniques compliments the benefits of our other therapies perfectly.
Benefits of Nutritional Therapy
In our Omaha chiropractic office, we’ve seen that problems often show up in the blood long before any signs of illness. Certain tests, when read properly, may indicate if you are progressing toward a serious illness. Wouldn’t it be better to stop these health and wellness problems before they become serious?
According to the World Health Organization, 1 in 20 adults experiences headaches daily (or almost daily).
The "good" news is that the frequency and severity of most headaches can be minimized or eliminated by addressing their root causes.
Lower Back Pain Treatment, Prevention and Relief
According to the National Institute of Health, lower back pain…
- • Is the leading cause of disability worldwide.
- • Consistently ranks as the #1 or #2 leading cause of work-related disability in America.(1)
- • Affects more than a quarter of adults in any given 3-month period.
If you suffer from occasional or chronic back pain, dull aches or sharp agony — you are certainly not alone. And, unfortunately, a 2010 study(2) found that the burden from lower back pain is getting even worse.
Factors that may quickly come to mind:
- Accidents and falls
- Sports injury
- Even simple, fluke movements
Other possible contributors to lower back pain:
- Poor posture
- Non-ergonomic workstation
- Diseases (like kidney stones, tumors, arthritis, blood clots and osteoporosis bone loss, for example.)
5 Ways to minimize or prevent problems:
- Are you at a healthy body weight? If you are not sure, simply measure your height and weight and plug those numbers into this online BMI (Body Mass Indicator) tool. If you find that you’re overweight, make a plan (perhaps with the assistance of your health care provider — depending on your age, fitness level and overall health) to bring your body weight into the healthy range.
- Are you physically fit? Many of us lead sedentary lives during the week and then turn into weekend warriors. While the intentions may be admirable, intense, infrequent activity may, in fact, contribute to lower back pains by putting us at greater risk of sprains, strains and muscle pulls. A better approach is to engage in moderate physical activity on a daily basis. Low-impact aerobic exercise such as swimming is a wonderful way to maintain joint, muscle and bone health as well as to prevent lower back injuries and pain. Yoga is another wonderful, low-impact exercise for strengthening back muscles, improving posture and increasing flexibility.
- Keep your childrens’ school backpack load under 20% of the child’s body weight.
- Lift and move objects properly and modify repetitive tasks. These steps alone would eliminate over 1/3 of all work related injury!
- Anxiety, depression, and stress may all contribute to muscle tension and lower back pain.
- Take regular breaks from the computer or your work station to stretch and loosen your shoulders, legs, neck and back muscles.
- During work breaks or lunch time, go for short brisk walks to get your heart and muscles working and help reduce stress.
Tips for relief
You’re probably aware of the current opioid addiction epidemic. Clearly painkillers are not a wise first-level pain management solution.
2 Safer and more natural solutions for lower back pain relief:
- Resist the temptation to "wait it out" and heal in bed. Studies suggest that too much bed rest may actually make back pain worse.(3) Rather, engage in gentle stretching and try to carefully resume your normal activity as soon as possible.
- Consider seeing a chiropractor. On average, 66% of patients who sought chiropractic care for back pain reported "great benefit" from their treatments.(4) Omaha chiropractor Dr. Jeffrey Meyers can often help determine the cause of lower back pain problem and discuss the most appropriate resolution for immediate relief as well as long-term prevention. Studies suggest that patients who receive chiropractic spinal manipulation often experience significant low back pain relief.(5) (Learn more about spine manipulation and spine manipulative therapy.) Another safe, natural and research-supported alternative for treating lower back pain is acupuncture, which is available at Dr. Meyers’ chiropractic office, as well.

Feedback for Jeffrey Meyers D.C. and Back2Health Chiropractic in Omaha, NE:
"Three years ago, I started seeing another chiropractor for convenience only. Big mistake. So, as I was thinking about my health issue, Dr. Meyers kept coming back to my mind. I made an appointment with Dr. Meyers and after the first session, my head pressure was gone. I now feel like myself again. My energy is back, and I can clearly think again."

"I’ve suffered a lot of different team sports injury over the years and tried different chiropractors, massage therapists and pain relievers… but those didn’t provide long lasting pain relief. I was talking with another chiropractic patient of Dr. Jeff’s and he convinced me to schedule a visit. I was skeptical of chiropractors in general but Dr. Jeff’s chiropractic adjustments have helped relieve my back pain like nothing else I’ve tried. I try to pay his office a visit every time I’m in town. (At some point, I may even try his acupuncture.)"
"Since seeing Dr. Jeff, the knee pain is gone (after just 3 weeks) and the hip pain is greatly reduced. I am able to walk, run, bend down, and sleep better. My energy level is greater due to healthier eating habits. Dr. Jeff recommended that I refrain from eating dairy and wheat products and I have seen a remarkable difference. I am able to sleep better, I have fewer sinus headaches, and joint pain has subsided."
