  • Pushing down on your hips or the chair/bed with your hands helps.
  • Climbing stairs is painful and bending forward is difficult.
  • Your lower back is basically immobilized
  • You have difficulty turning and bending to the opposite direction of the painful side.
  • The pain can become depressing and you experience loss of vitality and endurance trying to remain active in spite of the pain.
  • Rarely – you may have heavy hips, cramping calves, burning legs and feet

L2 is “out” What might have happened?

  • You had an accident or a fall
  • You bent forward and reached to the side awkwardly while lifting something heavy or even something small from the floor.
  • You were putting on pants while stooped over and leaning sideways.
  • You were gardening, scrubbing the floor, or walking on an uneven surface like the beach.
  • You slept on a soft, sagging bed like a hammock.
  • You’ve been leaning forward over a desk with poor elbow support or leaning over a low sink or work surface or sitting in a chair leaning on poor low elbow rests

L2 is “out”! Can Dr. Harkins fix it?

  • L2 vertebra is “out” sensitizing the L1 pain nerves which travel to your Quadratus lumborum muscle; now the muscle has become overly-sensitive to pressure and certain movements(see above). The QL muscle is called “The Joker” because it is deceptively painful.
  • Solution – Dr. Harkins can “adjust” the dysfunctional L1 segment stimulating the mechanical nerves which desensitize the pain nerves and get you back to perfect function.
  • How long? – 2-5 visits over 3-7 days to get back to perfect function! Book Now!
