A common problem that often goes undiagnosed, usually resulting in chronic lower back pain, is leg length inequality.
To one degree or another, this condition is thought to affect between 60-90% of the population, so the problem is fairly widespread. A leg length difference (measured while standing) of 5 mm or greater results in a higher incidence of lower back pain.
The good news is that we can effectively treat this condition with Foot Levelers custom orthotics.
Before beginning treatment of a short leg condition, Dr. Tom performs a simple weight-bearing postural examination to determine if there is any pelvic unleveling and compensatory lateral spine curvature.
Here’s what we know: A year-long randomized trial of 225 patients with chronic lower back pain shows that patients who used Foot Levelers custom orthotics reduced their pain by 34.5%, and improved function by 18.5%.
Patients who used Foot Levelers custom orthotics plus chiropractic care reduced pain by 40.4%, increased function by 32.3%.

Vacuum therapy, or cupping, is one of the specialized therapies we offer our patients at Lindstrom Chiropractic when appropriate. This therapy delivers increased blood supply to muscles and skin to relieve chronic and acute pain and muscle tension. (Cupping created a mild sensation at the summer Olympics when it was used to treat members of the U. S. swimming team.)
When treating acute back pain, this therapy uses large cups to create a strong vacuum that mimics the rolling action of deep tissue massage to draw out inflammation with little or no pain.
Vacuum therapy is also beneficial in speeding recover from surgical procedures. For example, patients with severe burns or deep abdominal scars, such as C-sections, use cupping to loosen and soften rigid tissue, no matter how old the scar is.
Cupping often creates a deep sense of relaxation. Many patients have reported a deep warmth and tingling sensation long after the treatment has ended.
