Manual Spinal Adjustments
Optimal range of motion, neural signals to the major organs in the body, and mobility can be restored through manual adjustments of the spine. Proper alignment of the spine enhances the nervous system, immune system, digestive system, and many of the other major systems throughout the human body.
There are a variety of reasons for why the vertebrae in your spine can become misaligned. Some examples include improper movement, repetitive injury, auto-accident, degenerative changes, etc. Fortunately, professional chiropractic care has been proven to be effective in restoring proper alignment to the spine thereby allowing the body to heal better and work more optimally.
With over 20 years experience performing manual spinal adjustments, Dr. Drew Czerminski is a trusted practitioner in the Live Oak area. He’ll gladly address your concerns and explain the process to you during your appointment.
This modality is highly effective in releasing muscle tension and addressing pain. During electric stimulation therapy, light electric currents are passed through adhesive pads which cause vasodilation. By sending this mild current to specific muscle fibers, the targeted muscles contract and then release. A mild electrical current has also been shown to disrupt pain signals sent to the brain. Benefits include alleviation of muscle spasms, swelling, and pain while also promoting muscle strength.
A therapeutic exercise regimen can go a long way in the recovery process. Dr. Czerminski will create a comprehensive, progressive treatment approach unique to your personal goals and suitable for your specific condition.

Foot Leveler Custom Orthotics
Unlike most chiropractors, Dr. Czerminski does not solely focus on your back and neck. Your feet are actually the foundation of your body during movement and it is very important that they be properly aligned, comfortable, and healthy. An imbalance in the feet can cause improper movement throughout the body due to an imbalance in the complex integrated structures of the muscles, connective tissue, and bones which collaborate during movement.
Important insights about the asymmetry in your feet and throughout your body can be accurately assessed with the 3D Body View Scan available at Back To Health Chiropractic. Foot Levelers custom-made functional orthotics can address anatomical leg length inequalities and a whole host of other foot ailments. The top-of-the-line custom orthotics offered at our facility allow for proper muscle support, shock absorption, and adequate distribution of body weight.
A popular condition that Dr. Drew Czerminski specializes in treating is plantar fasciitis which can feel like stabbing pain that typically occurs with your very first steps in the morning. Once your foot limbers up, the pain often decreases. The plantar fascia is a thick, ligamentous connective tissue that runs from the heel bone to the ball of the foot. This strong and tight tissue helps maintain the arch of the foot. It is also one of the major transmitters of weight across the foot as you walk or run. Thus, incredible stress is placed on the plantar fascia, often leading to this condition— an inflammation of the plantar fascia that causes stabbing or burning pain in the heel or arch of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain.
