Spinal Aid: Back Aid for Winter Shoveling

Dr. Robert Park, a 2nd generation chiropractor, visits Studio 5 to talk about winter activities that can put your back in danger … the biggest is shoveling snow off your drive-way. Are you doing it the safest way?


If you’re a very young person shoveling snow or skiing and you feel some pain in the back, that typically is something acute like a strain or a sprain of a muscle and can be treated with ice and anti-inflammatory medications.

If you are a little older, say in your 30’s on up, and you feel a strong pain during these activities it is more likely a symptom of a more chronic problem such as bulging or herniated discs caused by degeneration.

Dr. Park demonstrated the four ways your discs can evolve from healthy to herniated and the various stages a disc will go through before you feel the painful consequences.

Decompression provided by your nearest Spinal Aid Centercan help these problems. Here’s how it can help:

• Relieves pressure on discs and nerves

o From herniated or bulging disks

o From Stenosis

o From Sciatica

• Creates negative pressure within the disc – drawing in herniated material and creating an atmosphere where the disk can actually heal itself.

• Outpatient Treatment

• Non Surgical and Drug Free

• Extremely high success rate and it is non surgical so FAR less down time.
