Tempe Low Back Pain Chiropractor
The great nemesis of the human frame surpassed in numbers only by the common cold. It seems that most of us, by the awesome age of 40, will experience anything from a mild ache in our low back to severe, debilitating disc herniation. But make no mistake about it; Advil or Bayer aspirin will not make long-lasting improvements to this dilemma. And don’t forget, every year over 15,000 people die prematurely from internal bleeding that is directly caused by these anti-inflammatory medications. They have their purpose but they are not the answer to helping the human frame hold itself up properly. Only balanced muscle activity can do that.
The vast majority of people referred to 3D Integrated Medical with low back pain find relief because we evaluate and treat the overall muscle balance throughout the pelvis and legs with Fascial Manipulation, flexion distraction, Activator technique, and manual adjusting techniques. Without balancing the many muscles controlling the pelvis it is virtually impossible to have controlled, smooth motion in normal activities of daily living. And without normal, smooth motion in the joints, they will inflame faster, the muscles will tear easier, and they will become more fibrotic and spasmotic leading to a cycle that will then lead to long-term dysfunction. You can get adjusted 3 times a week for years but, if you don’t normalize muscle function you may never get the problem to resolve for the long term.

Dr. Pam Traum
Dr. Pam Traum has developed a focus on nutrition and homeopathic remedies as well as gentle activator and diversified adjusting techniques. She graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in 1997 and has lived in Arizona ever since. Her undergraduate degree is from the University of Washington in 1989 with a BA in Business administration (of all things) but was back in school for pre-med preparation quickly thereafter. Her interests include guiding her patients to live better lives and….. guiding her patients to live better lives. I know that sounds redundant but that is basically her biggest passion. Well, she does allow some time for camping with her husband and two awesome sons. Oh, she also loves to ski but doesn’t get much time for it here in the southwest. She is a great mom and does her best to balance a professional’s life with the requirements of motherhood and family.
