West Los Angeles Chiropractor
Along with traditional chiropractic adjustments, we utilize several other methods of chiropratic science to relieve pain and promote skeletal and nerve health. Explore more down below.
Effective Chiropractic Treatment
Two of the most common problems affecting health in Los Angeles, California and the U.S. at large is lower back and foot pain, which are frequently directly connected. In fact, 77% of people will suffer from back or foot pain in their daily lives.
Aging, weight gain, sports and occupations that are physically demanding can make the discs in the spine wear out and your foot arches to collapse. That process being accelerated by bad posture, lack of exercise, poor biomechanics and deficient diets.
Back and foot pain can usually be treated without surgery at our center. We are the only center to have a patent pending foot rehabilitation device called “Foot Power”. It not only strengthens your feet but helps neurologically control the way you walk and run. That means it will help other areas including knees, hips, spine and even shoulders.
If you find yourself experiencing pain that radiates into the lower extremities usually diagnosed as sciatica, or lasts several days, you should be seen immediately to properly diagnose and alleviate the pain as well as prevent future recurrences.

What To Expect During Your Chiropractic Visit
Usually we can diagnose your back pain with a physical exam. Our office has been treating back pain patients for over 30 years. Imbalances in the feet, knees, legs and hips greatly affects the way the pelvis and thus how the spine works. Often the lower back locks up because it can no longer compensate for what is going on all around it. When it is allowed to stay locked up the discs start to dehydrate and it leads to degenerative disc disease. This is not a mystery. In the chiropractic field we use the term subluxation as a designation of a vertebrae that no longer moves correctly that will irritate the nervous system. Your initial visit will include a consultation so that we can understand the origin and genesis of your complaints. Your initial exam will include a posture analysis, range of motion testing, spinal reflex testing, neurologic examination, muscle testing, pain pattern location, neurologic testing such as response to vibration, light touch or pin prick. Depending on what we find other tests may include an Diagnostic Ultrasound, X-ray, magnetic resonance image (MRI) scan, done density scan, or computed tomography (CT) scan. Blood pressure is taken in the sitting and standing position to evaluate your bodies ability adapt quickly. Oxygen rate, pulse rate as well as any other tests that are specific to your condition. As you can see Dr. Kelberman is well known for his thoroughness.
As an office that specializes in Chiropractic Kinesiology, our focus is to restore normal muscle function and balance. Restoring normal body movement facilitates normal spinal and joint movements.
