Back Pain

Back pain is a growing epidemic for americans. In fact it’s the most common physical complaint that leads to loss of job and lost job time.

Back pain includes low back pain, middle back pain, and upper back pain. Nerve and muscular problems, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis can result in back pain.

 What Are the Causes of Back Pain?

  • Spinal Stenosis

    Occurs as intervertebral discs lose moisture and volume with age, which decrease the space between your discs. Minor trauma with spinal stenosis can cause inflammation and nerve impingement syndrome, which can produce sciatica without disc rupture.

  • Back Injuries

    Back problems and injuries often occur during recreational activities, sports, work-related, or projects at home.

  • Spinal Disk Problems

     Problems with the spine’s discs play a part in back pain.

  • Spinal Degeneration

    The result of a neglected or undetected vertebral subluxation, injury, or misalignment. Research shows that degeneration can start 10 days to 2 weeks upon acquiring a subluxation. It will progress until it has completely destroyed the disc and fused the spine.

  • Spondylolisthesis

    Is a defect or fracture of one or both wing-shaped parts of a vertebra, can result in vertebrae slipping backward, forward, or over a bone below.

  • Spine Curvature Disorders

     Abnormalities which effect the natural curvatures of the spine are misaligned or exaggerated in certain areas, which happens with lordosis, kyphosis, and scoliosis.

My name is Ana...in the last 3 years I had been experiencing pain everyday due to a car accident. loss, and stress. At age 24, I felt hopeless.

Don't waste time, go to MW and try it for yourself. You will be as happy as me!

Dr. Martin has played a significant role in my overall health for the past 8 years. Recently, I developed sciatica while training to participate in a full Tough Mudder event. Thanks to Dr. Martin's expert care, I accomplished my goal on my 63rd birthday. It is amazing what the body is capable of achieving when the mind is willing.

I can now drive to the cottage pain free! Thanks to Dr. Martin and staff. Before, after 45 minutes I would be in pain, now I can make the four hour drive!

I love how Dr. Martin brings to life the miraculous way the body can heal itself without the use of medication.


I get adjusted on a regular basis to keep my body feeling the best that it can. Adjustments also help with my stress levels and help me recover faster with injuries and ailments.

I started coming to see Dr. Martin after I began experiencing lower back pain while working out. I have been coming now consistently for over a year now and am happy to say that my lower back pain is gone, and I can now really push myself in my workouts. I now continue to see Dr. Martin for preventative care! Thanks!

I would like to thank Dr. Martin and Monica Seabra for helping me with my overall wellness plan. They listen, care and always know the right way to help keep me moving in the best direction for me. Thank you!

What an energizing health acquaintance & experience you will treasure when you visit this office! The easy-going professional demeanor makes it a pleasure and relief as I have experienced for ear (fullness) and sinus challenges. Not only are the adjustments by Dr. Martin both gentle and relieving, the staff goes the extra mile to provide a welcoming & comfortable assurance. I am thankful for this valuable prescription.

Kathy M.

I truly believe that my visits every other week are what keeps me healthy and energized. I live a very busy life and staying healthy is important. If I feel a little “something” (cold, sinus) coming on a quick word and visit to Dr. Martin always seems to help. As well, it is always nice to visit such a positive place.


I have benefitted from being a patient of Dr. Martin for a few years. I have experienced vibrant health as a result. My flexibility and activity levels have increased, my previous back issues are resolved and my immune system works very well – cold & flu free for several seasons. I also find that my stress levels are lowered, even though life’s stresses are still present. Walking into offices at Martin Wellness is an uplifting experience – the staff and energy in the office is exhilarating. Thank you!


Receiving chiropractic care has absolutely transformed my health and well-being! Before meeting Dr. Martin, I suffered from chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia. A medical professional once told me that I would just have to manage these issues every day for the rest of my life. Not true!
Under the care of Dr. Martin, my pain is significantly lessened, feelings of anxiety and depression are rare, and I no longer require prescriptions. I wish I had known about the understood the benefits of regular adjustments much sooner in life. I now make it a high priority for me and for my children.
Dr. Martin provides exceptional care that is both efficient and compassionate. The moment I walk in the door at Martin Wellness, I feel like the healing has already begun!
