Back Pain Treatment Jacksonville
Lower Back Pain and Quality of Life
Beach Boulevard Chiropractic is led by Jacksonville Chiropractor, Dr. Brian Winkler. He has built a strong reputation in the Jacksonville area largely because he takes the time to look at each patient as an individual, rather than a "vessel" for their pain. Dr. Winkler was a top student at Palmer College of Chiropractic and also has knowledge in microbiology.
Mid-Back Pain Treatment Jacksonville
The human spine needs a great deal of flexibility to withstand extreme shocks and jolts from a lifetime of everyday weight-bearing activities. Spinal misalignments can strain the muscles of the lower back allowing pain to stem from:
- Personal injuries due to heavy lifting, an auto accident or sports impact
- Years of wear and tear that have led to disc deterioration
- A thickening of the bone around the spinal cord
- Muscular strain from a lifetime of poor posture

The spine also encases and protects the spinal cord, the central signal-routing hub between the brain and the vast network of nerves that convey sensory and motor information. If any force, deterioration or disease allows the spinal column to fall out of alignment, bones or discs can press against the nerves or even against the spinal cord itself, causing not only pain but also tingling, numbness, weakness, and other signaling errors that affect physical function.
These and other causes of back pain can respond to conservative treatments such as chiropractic care. This is good news for patients who might otherwise have to undergo spinal fusion surgery or rely on the regular use of painkillers. Dr. Winkler not only uses traditional spinal adjustments to relieve back pain and postural problems, but he also specializes in lower back problems and treatments.
