Most of us suffer from back pain at some point in our lives. Researchers estimate that nearly 1 out of 3 adults deal with some kind of regular spinal pain. Dr. Groneck and our talented staff see many back pain cases in our Humble office, and we've found that chiropractic care is a highly effective way to not only help you recover from back pain, it's also an excellent way to avoid future episodes.
A recent study from the University of Utah confirms what our Humble patients have experienced: your Humble chiropractor is the best first choice for an episode of back pain.
In this study, 747 patients were treated for low back pain. Each patient was evaluated based on the first person they sought treatment with, whether it was a primary care physician, a chiropractor, or a physiotherapist.
What the researchers discovered is that the subjects who first saw a chiropractor had fewer advanced imaging tests and fewer surgical procedures.
Other studies have found the same results. A 2012 study reported that chiropractic patients had the best functional recovery and pain relief for chronic back pain.
Chiropractic works by restoring the natural, pain-free function of your spine. Dr. Groneck and our team help your body heal with gentle chiropractic adjustments that don't use drugs or risky surgical procedures.

We are dedicated to providing a comprehensive approach to helping you achieve optimal health by looking at the synergy of the whole person, not just a collection of parts. We combine standard medical testing with functional medicine testing to gain an in-depth understanding of what is wrong and, equally important, how to fix it.
