When a person bends down to pick up a pencil and “throws the back out”, it is never the act of bending down that throws out the back.

It certainly isn’t the weight of the pencil that does it. What allows this person’s back to go out at that moment is most often many years worth of underlying factors that accumulated, weakening a disc in the back to the point where that area will be ready for injury at the slightest exertion.

Chiropractic allows Dr. Avila to treat the area of spinal injury while kinesiology allows her to locate and treat those underlying factors that weakened the disc in the first place, in order to prevent this from happening again. Dr. Avila employs several low-force adjustment techniques that gently and effectively realign the spine and extremities.
