Back/Neck Pain
 

Back/Neck Pain

Pain along the spinal column in your neck or back is usually caused by subluxations, or misalignments of your vertebrae. A small misalignment can cause pain by causing pressure on nerves. Left untreated, these subluxations can cause muscle spasms and increasing pain. Chiropractic adjustments properly align your spine so that pressure on joints and nerves is released. It is a direct treatment for the cause of the pain, not a temporary relief like pain relievers or massage.  If you are experiencing back or neck pain visit us today.


Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most familiar issues that prompt patients to seek chiropractic. The spine is the foundation of the chiropractic adjustment and correction of misalignment that can cause problems throughout the body’s intricate biological network. Back pain commonly results from nerve pressure that can occur with one or more vertebras have shifted out of alignment.  It can strain the surrounding muscles and quickly promote a stress, pain and reinjure cycle.

Back pain can be addressed through spinal adjustment, but additionally, chiropractic care in the form of therapeutic exercise, weight management, promotion of internal tissue strengthening through nutrition, and stress management are all essential to maintaining a body that’s free of back pain.  Sufferers know how detrimental back pain can be to your daily life and your quality of life. There’s no reason to let it go unchecked and uncorrected when a straightforward, non-invasive and totally natural solution is readily available through chiropractic care.


Neck Pain

Neck pain can result from many causes. Whether you’ve experienced an accident or injury, even a minor one, whether you’re regularly stressed and tend to stain that area of your body, or you simply cannot link your acute or chronic neck pain to a specific source, chiropractic can help to identify the issue, and correct it, efficiently, non-invasively and naturally.

Chiropractic adjustments can address any subluxations or misalignments that are affecting the vertebrae of the neck. Pain in the shoulders, upper back and arms are also common accompaniment for neck pain, and they too can be corrected through chiropractic care.

Therapeutic exercises and stretching can help you maintain and optimize the results of chiropractic care for neck pain. We’ll help you develop a plan that promotes flexibility, prevents reinjure, and keeps your body feeling and functioning at its best.

No Pain Medication & No Surgery

After spending the last 19 years working as both a sedation and emergency room RN, I found myself developing intense lower back pain and a numbness/tingling sensation in my right lower leg/foot. The symptoms progressively got worse, especially at work while moving and/or transporting patients. I initially wrote the pain off as kidney stone related, since I had passed three in just a few months. However, a CT scan revealed that not only did I have kidney stones but I also had three herniated lumbar discs and two complete fractures of the L4 pars aspect of my vertebrae. These conditions had caused my spine to move forward approximately 10-12mm. This condition is referred to as a Spondylolisthesis. After speaking to the ER doctor, my PCP, and an orthopedic surgeon, it appeared that spinal fusion surgery was inevitable. As a former martial arts instructor and wrestling coach, the thought of being limited in my activity was not only disheartening but completely unacceptable to me. Shortly after my diagnosis I returned with my family back to Asheville and researched all local chiropractors. I found myself at Dr. Reilly’s office, which I feel did not happen just by chance. After only six months of treatment, I have made tremendous improvement and I am now over 90% recovered and my lumbar spine is now only 2mm out of place. I feel as though the recovery has been nothing short of miraculous as I remain optimistic that through continued chiropractic care, proper diet, and exercise that I can return to 100%. He also helped me make full recovery after a recent motor vehicle accident where I sustained cervical neck trauma. I would like to sincerely thank Dr. Reilly for all of his treatment and disseminated knowledge. This gentleman is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his life’s work and I feel both fortunate and blessed to be his patient.

My lower back and hip pain began a little over a year ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. I saw a chiropractor while I was pregnant, but unfortunately I did not continue after the delivery. Over the course of the year I experienced extreme lower back pain, hip pain, and my left leg would go numb. I was not able to stand, sit, or drive for long distances because I would be in so much pain, to the point the I could not go from a sitting to standing position. I was not able to interact with my daughter at all in the afternoons after I got off work. I work 40+ hours a week and I am constantly on my feet. It got to the point where I could not full complete my job duties. I first heard about Dr. Reilly from my husband, who had slipped a disc and was receiving care. I decided to make an appointment and I am so glad I did. The office staff was so friendly when I arrived and truly took the time to make sure I got all my questions answered. Dr. Reilly sent me to Open MRI for x-rays and I saw him the following week. I had some nerve damage from the delivery of my daughter and slightly slipped disc. I underwent 12 sessions, twice a week, of electrical muscle stimulation, traction, and adjustments. After the first session I could tell a difference. I am definitely a different person now – a better person/mother/wife now that I have seen Dr. Reilly. I can sit, walk, stand, run, and work without being in pain. I can now take my daughter to the park and play for hours without having to stop because of pain. For this I will be forever grateful to Dr. Reilly and his staff. I would recommend anyone to go see Dr. Reilly and his staff.

debra_b.JPGWhen I first came to your office, about 9 years ago, I was in chronic pain in my neck, back and shoulders. Unfamiliar with chiropractic at that time, I was initially apprehensive but you helped me feel at ease right away and within a few short weeks of treatment, I was pain-free. What a relief! My life was instantly improved. Periodic adjustments over the years have kept me on track. Your compassionate care coupled with state-of-the-art technology are a winning combination. Thank you so very much for your compassion, care and expertise. You’re the BEST! And I am so grateful that, with your help, I can live pain-free. Thank you!

I had been suffering from lower back pain for over three months and the drugs I was taking to ease the pain, were not helping. Seeing a chiropractor helped me in multiple ways...I don't have the back pain anymore, I can bend over better, and most importantly, my attitude has changed. Thanks to Dr Reilly, I'm less crabby! I suggest anyone with similar conditions, visit a chiropractor!

I came to Fairview Chiropractic Center and Dr. Reilly with severe pain in the left side of my lower back.

The pain started after I had spent several hours on the computer in an awkward position. For the pain I took too much pain killer, which resulted in an intestinal bleed. I was hospitalized and in ICU for that. I complained of the back pain and they took an x-ray in the hospital and it showed arthritis. Again, pain medications were prescribed, however they only helped temporarily and after my ICU stay I was looking for an alternative.

Dr. Reilly was highly recommended to me. I made my first appointment with the Fairview Chiropractic Center to hear Dr. Reilly’s diagnosis and to learn what his plan for me would be. His choice of procedure and scheduling has improved my condition considerably.

I would tell others to choose a chiropractor very carefully, as I did. I would most definitely recommend the Fairview Chiropractic Center with its professional staff.

I came into Fairview Chiropractic Center unable to walk or stand up on my own. I had debilitating pain in my lower back and my left leg was burning and almost completely numb. I had had this condition for approximately one month and 5 days. Prior to coming to Dr. Reilly I had gone to the ER and received pain killers, muscles relaxers and an injection…none of these relieved my pain.

Through the patient care program Dr. Reilly tailored to my condition, using the most advanced medical treatment I had ever received, I can now walk and return to my normal activities. In addition to relieving my low back pain my appetite returned. I had quit eating because of the pain. The treatment also helped my emotional wellbeing and my relationships with others.

I should have come to Dr. Reilly as soon as my condition worsened. What a blessing he and his staff have been. Don’t suffer by waiting and putting off coming to Fairview Chiropractic Center. You will make new friends and the suffering will end.

Oscar was affected by his lower back pain when he walked. He reported his pain to be a severe and debilitating.

He was referred to Fairview Chiropractic by a friend who suggested that the doctors there could help him. After receiving chiropractic treatment, Oscar reports his pain to be 95percent better. Now when he walks, he reports "my hip and leg no longer hurts or feels like it is pulling in my hip."

Oscar is thankful for the treatment that has helped him and would recommend Dr. Reilly and Dr. Sales to anyone who needs help with their pain.

Over a period of 4 years, I developed a pain in my pelvis that kept me from walking more than a few yards. I had previously tried medication, physical therapy, and acupuncture, all of which helped a little. However, after coming to Fairview Chiropractic, the pain is no longer localized or acute. I can walk at a normal pace for over a mile – without debilitating pain! As a side effect, I also noticed a reduction in the tinnitus in my right ear. I would recommend that everyone try Fairview Chiropractic Center. I chose it over injections in the spine. I feel that the care I received at Fairview Chiropractic Center actually alleviated the pain rather than just masked it, like shots would have.
~ Tom L.

I came to Fairview Chiropractic with pain that began at the upper neck and extended to the lower spine. In addition, I had scar tissue in my left knee following knee surgery. I’d been dealing with all of this for over a year. I’d tried surgery, physical therapy, pain medication – none of which really helped. After coming to Fairview Chiropractic Center, I no longer have any back pain. My walking has improved, and I also have no pain in my knee. I tell everyone – go see Dr. Reilly! I feel like a new person!

Severe Back Pain  One Treatment Resolve my Pain

I came to Dr. Reilly for excruciating back pain that was making it difficult for me to walk. I had the pain for approximately 1 ½ weeks prior coming in the office. Dr. Reilly adjusted my spine and manipulated my lower back – the next day I was pain free. I was able to walk a lot easier after the adjustment.

I had previous back surgery in May 2013 and physical therapy on my shoulder more recently. I would highly recommend a consultation with Dr. Reilly.

john_h.jpgThe treatments I have received from Dr. Reilly’s office have relieved most of my pain in a very short time. I am now a 100% believer in chiropractic treatment.

I was having back pain for about 3 or 4 months. It was so bad I couldn’t bend over to tie my shoes. I passed by the sign asking “got back pain – we can help” so many time before I finally stopped and I am sure glad I did. I had not gone to any doctor prior to Dr. Reilly, I just lived with it.

After following Dr. Reilly’s treatment plan I feel wonderful. I can bend over and tie my shoes without pain. In addition to helping me with my back pain, I believe the whole experience helped my mental health as well.

I would recommend seeing Dr. Reilly and his staff FIRST if you are having any pain.

PS: “The ladies are wonderful”

"The treatments I have received from Dr. Reilly’s office have relieved most of my pain in a very short time. I am now a 100% believer in chiropractic treatment.

I had multiple pains. My neck, lower back and left knee. The neck and lower back have been a problem since the ninety’s. I had surgery on both locations of my spine with success, but everything wears out and I started having problems again in 2010. I lived with the pain or would rest to relieve it. I didn’t use medication or therapy.Since beginning treatment, my pain level is about a 1 or 2 instead of 7 to 10. My knee is almost free of pain; my lower back only occasionally has pain. My neck still bothers me but not like before. I am continuing treatment on it. I find I can go up and down stairs easily; I’m still taking things easy. I don’t want to push myself and cause the problems to return. I do the exercises given to me daily and feel better and strongerIf you are in pain and want some relief, come to Fairview Chiropractic Center. They will help you get rid of the pain. All of the staff is friendly and concerned. Also, the massage makes you feel 10 years younger.

P.S: They give you tests & homework. :)"

"I had been suffering with back and neck pain for approximately six months when I came to see Dr. Reilly. He recommended laser therapy, traction, heat, electric muscle stimulation and Graston Technique.

After completing the treatment program designed specifically for me I am 100% better. In addition to my original complaints, my restless leg syndrome is completely gone.

I would recommend Dr. Reilly and his staff, they are experts in getting the problems you have healed."

 ~ Sherry S.

 

 

"I had been suffering with lower back pain and numbness in my right calf for about 2 years. I read about Dr. Reilly and Fairview Chiropractic Center in an ad and decided to give chiropractic a try. I had already done the medical treatments of prescription drugs, injections and physical therapy and it did not help relieve my pain.

Upon completing the treatment regimen Dr. Reilly recommended, my back pain is all but gone and I no longer have any numbness in my calf. I can now do anything I want without experiencing pain.

I have recommended many people with back problems to Dr. Reilly, it’s definitely worth trying."

 ~ Vicki L.

 

 

Dear Dr. Reilly

I am writing to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done for me.

First of all, after taking the x-rays you sat me down and showed me very specifically where my trouble spots were regarding my spine. You went over what your recommendations to correct the issues were. You were the only chiropractor who has ever done this for me, showing me on my own x-rays in detail what all was wrong. You were able to get me down to no pain in my spine, as well as helping relief the pain in my knee. You knew exactly what it would take to help me.

Your great concern really impressed me. I had a car accident in 1990. In 2010 I stepped in a hole and twisted my whole pelvic area, pulled a muscle in my lower back and knocked out some disc in my upper back. I’ve had excruciating pain since then

Luckily, my husband and I saw an ad regarding Dr. Reilly in Fairview, NC. It took the least amount of time to get me over my back and knee pain. Your office is equipped with only the latest in therapy equipment. I will always be grateful for all you have done for me.

 ~ Beverly T.

 

I came to Dr. Reilly after suffering with lower back pain for years. I had experienced chiropractic years ago with good results but for some reason just continued to live in pain when this episode came on.

My friends told me about how Dr. Reilly at Fairview Chiropractic Center had helped them and I decided to give the office a call. Dr. Reilly explained my condition in terms I could understand and laid out a treatment plan designed just for me. I followed the plan as he recommended and today I am out of pain.

After my course of care I am finding that I am able to do thing that I previously could not do without pain; my house work, yard work and even brush my teeth. As an added benefit I find I have more energy throughout the day to do even more activities that I was limited in due to pain.

I recommend anyone that is putting off getting care for whatever reason to pick up the phone and call Dr. Reilly and his staff, it is worth the effort.

I came to Fairview Chiropractic Center with pretty severe low back pain. I had been dealing with it on and off for the last couple years. I have missed work due to my pain. Recently I had gone the medical route, however realized it was not fixing my problem, just hiding my pain.

After 2 weeks of treatment with Dr. Reilly I am pain free! I feel 100% better in my low back AND the treatments also helped eliminate the tension in my shoulders

I would absolutely refer Dr. Reilly and the whole staff at Fairview Chiropractic for anyone having my condition and a lot more.

 ~ Owenby



I had been experiencing neck and back pain from a car wreck for over a month. After visiting Fairview Chiropractic Center and being treated by Dr. Reilly, I have been helped dramatically! I have full movement in my neck, my back no longer hurts and my migraines are almost gone. Chiropractic definitely helps!

How could I have imagined what was in store for me the morning I got out of bed noticing a slight discomfort in my left buttock. Over the course of the day it didn't go away as I had hoped but also seemed no worse so I didn't dwell on it. Thinking I had slept in some position to bring it on, I hoped the next nights rest would make it go away. The second morning, the discomfort was more distinct, with slight pain down my leg so I decided to see the chiropractor who has helped me with previous back pain problems. Dr. Reilly did an assessment through various bending, stretching and reaching exercises and said the problem was not in my left leg but in the lower back, (L-5 disc) which is fairly common and treatable. I began regular chiropractic treatments including electro-stimulation and adjustments, later adding decompression traction. The pain down my leg progressed steadily as a particular nerve became severely affected. Sitting was nearly impossible leading Dr. Reilly to do an x-ray which showed a more difficult problem with the disc. He advised me to see my family doctor. Along with continued chiropractor treatments including now a cold laser, my family physician ordered pain medication and an MRI. We decided the problem could be corrected without surgery, so we reached out to a Carolina Spine specialist for further expertise. With epidural steroid injections and on-going chiropractic work, this team approach has been very beneficial and I am feeling almost "all the way back". I commend Dr. Reilly for his warm, caring professional work throughout. It is fortunate for people in the Fairview area that we can partake of his services and rely on his expert advice.

Several years ago I injured my arm while in my yard. I figured it would heal quickly and didn’t take any action at the time. After several weeks went by, I went to my primary doctor and he told me it was still hurting because I probably had arthritis. He offered to prescribe pain medication, but I didn’t want to go that route. Over the next five years I would use a heating pad, and sometimes over the counter pain relievers to try to get some relief. Nothing seemed to work and over time I thought I would just have to live with the constant pain. And it was constant, almost four hours a day, seven days a week. Finally I decided to try chiropractic treatment. I made an appointment at Fairview Chiropractic Center with Dr. Reilly. After an examination, he informed me what he believed the problems to be and that he felt he could be of assistance. He offered a detailed, time specific plan of treatment, and we began immediately. I continued as he prescribed, and with each visit I began to experience less pain. As a result of treatment I also began to notice my occasional neck pain was also getting better. My lower back, which I had not complained about also started feeling less stressed as well. By the end of my treatment plan I was absolutely delighted and thankful that I was pain free, just as Dr. Reilly had predicted!! I am so thankful for everything they did for me. I say “they” because it all began up front with patient caring and professional staff. They always treated me with kindness and understanding. I’m not trying to sound like an advertisement, but I feel the bottom line is this…if you are living with pain and nothing seems to be working, make an appointment at Fairview Chiropractic Center and see if your quality of life can be improved as much as mine!

I was involved in an automobile accident 7 months ago. After 5 months of seeing a neurosurgeon with zero relief and plenty of pain and discomfort from steroid injections and nerve studies, I ran into Fairview Chiropractic at a trade show and decided to give it a shot. It couldn’t hurt anything. This pain was debilitating and required drugs to make it through the day. Pain was in my neck and radiated down my left arm

Although I am not 100%, I am remarkably better. I can go through most days and forget I have a neck injury. I would tell others to try chiropractic if they are in pain. It does not hurt and there is something to it, not just some quack popping your neck and back.

My experience here, starting with the friendly/caring staff and ending with Dr. Reilly, has been awesome. A truly professional outfit.

In July of 2008 I started experiencing headaches that over months became increasing worse. I went to see my family doctor who said it was allergies/sinus problems and prescribed a daily allergy medication as well as pain medication. The headaches continued and became worse to the extent they were interfering with my daily life. I was taking massive amounts of pain relievers with no relief. I noticed on Fairview Chiropractic’s sign they treated headaches. My daughter had been treated by Dr. Reilly for sports related injuries and issues while playing sports at A. C. Reynolds with great success so I decided I would give them a call to see if they could help me.

During my first visit they took the time to talk to me and find out what problems I was having, they took x-rays and measurements. I returned for my report of findings to learn that the x-ray showed that I had cervical vertebrae that had become twisted and was putting pressure on the nerves in my neck. Dr. Reilly laid out a course of treatment for me and began treatments. I left my first treatment amazed at how much better I felt. I continued the course of treatment that Dr. Reilly had set for me as well as exercises at home. I also during that time experienced lower back pain which I have had since the birth of my children that limited my ability to do things such as vacuum, mop, garden or even shop for long periods of time without pain. I spoke with Dr. Reilly about this and he assured me that he could treat that too.

I am now going every 2 weeks for adjustments and there are no words that can describe how wonderful I feel, I have had absolutely no headaches and my lower back pain is pretty much no existent. It is such a wonderful feeling to wake up every morning and know that you are going to have a pain free day.

Dr. Reilly is always very interested in your course of care, are always concerned that you are not experiencing any pain and will make suggestions and give advice on your continued improvement.

The office staff is always very professional, friendly and helpful.

I recommend them highly to my family, friends and co-workers any time they tell me they are experiencing any type of pain.

Thanks to everyone at Fairview Chiropractic for all they have done to improve my quality of life.

I would just like to tell everyone what Dr. Reilly and Fairview Chiropractic Center has done for me. The week before last week I woke up with what I thought was a migraine headache and called Fairview Chiropractic Center to be seen. Dr. Reilly treats my migraines with adjustments. Instead of a migraine I had two bulging discs in my neck.

Dr. Reilly took X-rays and began treating me with the DTS, electro-stem, ice and adjustments. At the time he began to treat me I could not turn my head to the left without having severe pain down both arms and a debilitating headache. I have seen Dr. Reilly a total of 10 times for this treatment, and I now am pain free with no headache, no neck pain and no arm pain. This was all accomplished through non-surgical means and without being prescribed long term muscle relaxers or pain medications.

I would just like to add that I have seen Dr. Reilly for several years for different injuries, and after being treated by Dr. Reilly had no long term negative effects. I like the ability to go to him and not have to take medication for things that can be treated and get better without them.

~ Cindy L.

 


When I first sought treatment I could not bend my neck all the way back - I can now. Dr. Reilly offers a variety of treatments and when used in combination it works.

I've visited several different chiropractic clinics over the last several years looking for relief from back pain. I had minor successes and continued to live with pain on a daily basis. I don't ever write reviews but I felt compelled to write one for Ed. He has changed my life. Not only has his work been amazing but his bedside manner is professional and caring at the same time. Couldn't give a higher rating. Amazing.

After back surgery a few years ago, and a re-injury, I didn’t know if I would every sneeze again without sever lower back pain. With the expertise of Dr. Reilly, and his different modalities- I was almost 100%. Thank you for everything you do!

~ Conner

 

 

I have had 37 parachute jumps, two ejection seat training shots which in turn caused me to have two back surgeries. I still had severe back pain which Dr. Reilly has reduced considerably.
