Spinal Rehabilitation in Moon Twp., PA: Back pain and injuries can manifest in various ways to cause pain, irritation and lack of range of motion in the body. Back pain affects approximately three million people in the United States annually! It is important to keep your spine healthy, as it is the center of the body and connects to everything, either directly or via the nervous system. Chiropractic care can help keep you pain-free regardless of your lifestyle.
Stop Living with Back Pain
Upper and middle back pain may be caused by muscle or ligament strains, poor posture and damage or tension involving the discs in the spinal column. This can happen very easily if you work at a desk five days a week! It can also occur from pressure on the spinal nerves from certain problems, such as a herniated disc. Low back pain is usually caused by strains or sprains from improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise, fracture, ruptured disk or arthritis. It is important to be mindful of your body and how you position it during daily tasks to avoid injury. But sometimes, almost seemingly at random, back pain can strike, causing pain, discomfort and decreased quality of life.
Signs of back pain or injury include but are not limited to:
- Numbness or tingling
- Radiating or sharp, shooting pain
- Severe pain that does not improve after resting
- Pain after a fall or an injury
- Pain along with trouble urinating or fever
Chiropractic Care Promotes Longevity and Reduces Pain
Chiropractic care is a painless, low-risk and non-invasive treatment that can have lasting results with regular care. With gentle manipulation and other techniques the body can be aligned and pain can be reduced or eliminated depending on the condition. By using varying body positions and hands-on techniques, the vertebrae in the spine will be adjusted back to their proper place within the body. This will allow the nervous system to function optimally and allows the spinal column to deliver water, blood and nutrients to the body. This will help you heal and keep the body functioning at its best with regular care.
After a few sessions, many patients begin to feel relief. Depending on your condition, previous ailments and other factors, the time it takes to reduce or eliminate pain may vary. It is important to regularly visit your chiropractor to see lasting results.

I have a major back anomaly and am avoiding surgery by going to Weinstein Chiropractic. Thank goodness my daughter found them through Groupon! Dr. Kristal knows how to realign not only my spine, but is also working on my ligaments and muscles. I can now walk on the treadmill and ride a bike, which is something I wasn’t able to do a year ago. Thank goodness for these dedicated docs!
My journey to better health and wellness began this past May 2016. At that time, I had developed severe pain in my left buttocks. Although standing was painless, sitting was extremely painful. The pain became very distracting, particularly while driving. At that point I knew I had to get help. Everyone diagnosed a sciatic nerve problem and recommended seeing a chiropractor. Fortunately, one of my surgical assistants had been treated in the past by Dr. Gary Weinstein and highly recommended him.
My first visit to Weinstein Chiropractic Center was miraculous! The various state of the art diagnostic scans and x-rays were impressive. As Dr. Gary reviewed the results at my initial consult, I realized that 30 years of being an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, as well as some trips and falls along the way, had taken its toll. Standing with bad posture while performing surgery all day long resulted in significant abnormal curvatures in my spinal column with the end result culminating in severe pain in my buttocks. But there was hope, which became apparent after my first treatment session.
Although the preliminary plan was to treat my spinal column degenerative damage, treatment was also directed to my right wrist, right knee, and both feet. In particular, I have to commend Dr. Kristal for her keen diagnostic awareness of my foot problems. After my first series of adjustments, not only was my backside feeling better; my knee was feeling better; my feet were feeling fantastic; for the first time in years, I had NO pain in my right wrist!
Prior to visiting Weinstein Chiropractic Center, I felt certain that I was going to need surgery on my right wrist to be able to continue performing oral surgery. I knew relief from using Advil daily was not going to last forever. I have now gone from taking 800mg of Advil twice a day to being completely Advil free for two months! Being pain free, avoiding surgery, and being medication free for not only my wrist, but also my knee is miraculous! With the maintenance chiropractic care program I’m in now, I feel that my surgical career can continue for as long as I want to practice; I won’t be forced to retire due to debilitating degenerative conditions.
From my recent chiropractic experience, I feel everyone should at least have a consultation to learn the potential benefits of chiropractic care. At this point, I am sure that my chiropractic wellness program will keep me active and healthy. I am committed to chiropractic care for life.
Needless but important to say, every member of the Weinstein Chiropractic Center is friendly, helpful, professional, and committed to making you feel comfortable. All three doctors (Gary, Curtis, and Kristal) are excellent and provide optimal care. Rest assured, if they can’t fix your problem, they will refer you to the appropriate health care facility.
I know there are no guarantees in life; however, I would be very surprised if chiropractic care didn’t help in some fashion to better everyone’s health. Every organ, tissue, and cell in the body is supplied by or affected by nerves. If the weight of a quarter can cause a nerve in a rat to malfunction, it only stands to reason that the pressure of an abnormal curvature or dislocated spinal column on the spinal cord or nerves existing the spinal column can have many and vast negative effects on the tissues and organs they supply resulting in some sort of bad health issue. So whatever the end problem, why not try to fix it at the beginning. If the roof is collapsing, it only makes sense to check the foundation and fix it. The chiropractic team is committed to fixing the foundation before the roof collapses, and in my case raising the roof while correcting the foundation. I only regret not seeking chiropractic care before my foundation deteriorated.
Thanks Gary, Curtis, Kristal, and the entire Weinstein staff for accepting the challenge of fixing my problems. It will definitely require a team effort and lifelong commitment for better health and wellness. Thank you Kelsie for referring me!

Weinstein Chiropractic Center has a wonderful, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, patient staff. I have just started with their practice and, being my first time to a chiropractor ever, they have put me at ease. They have a fully equipped office, there is someone to assist you with exercises as you are doing them and the Dr.s are patient as you work through your nerves of adjusting for the first time(s). I should also add that they have TERRIFIC hours for their clients who work regular business hours. I would highly recommend this professional staff to everyone.
Very nice and efficient people. I was able to get my husband in very quickly to get help with his issues and they jumped right at it to get sorted out. Could not have picked a better place to go.
