Back Pain

Chiropractic care and back pain are a smart fit. Chiropractors are qualified, trained, and educated on the intricacies and inner workings of the spine. At our Sylvania chiropractic clinic, our team is committed to providing proven, natural treatments to those suffering from back pain of every kind and severity.

Our team knows that determining the source of your back pain is essential to the healing process. We’re ready to eliminate your discomfort through thorough, holistic methods that never cover up your pain but remedy it at its source; this provides better overall body function and allows the body to perform as it should.

Whether you have low back pain due to an auto accident, chronic pain from an old injury, muscle overuse and discomfort from a vigorous workout routine, or anything in between, finding relief is closer than you think. We help those who sit at a desk all day and those who train for triathlons, understanding that no matter your activity level, pressures and stressors are constantly put on the spine and the back’s soft tissues.

Chiropractic care is non-invasive and organic, allowing the body to use its natural healing powers to restore and rejuvenate- we just help get the process started. Don’t let one more painful day derail your schedule. Not when effective, safe care is just a click away.

Dr. Royer really takes the time to listen and also explain. He has helped relieve my pain naturally, eliminating the need for steroid injections. I recommend everyone with back pain and sciatica to go see him. Thanks Doc!

Why Do I Have Back Pain?

The back is made up of various muscle groups, ligaments, nerves, and, of course, the spine. The spine has a tremendous range, connecting many parts of your musculoskeletal system and contributing significantly to everyday movements. The structure is your body’s central support, providing a means to sit, stand, turn, walk, and bend, among others. 

As you can imagine, if the back isn’t in complete working order, it can cause many problems. Finding the cause of your discomfort will get you on the right path to ridding you of the discomfort and benefit the body as a whole, leading to proper movement and mobility. 

There are countless reasons we experience back pain; it could be due to one significant event, or it could be years of poor posture. Our patients run the full spectrum of back pain scenarios, and we’re able to provide support for all.  

Some common reasons for back pain include:

  • Herniated discs- often lumbar herniations (lower back) and cervical herniations (neck)
  • Sciatica and hip pain
  • Neurological dysfunction 
  • Sprains and strains
  • Bruising of muscles or pulled muscles
  • Spine compression
  • And more

Several of our patients have ongoing back pain, usually from an old injury that wasn’t properly treated and healed incorrectly or from habitual misuse of the back muscles and spine. Chiropractic care can help reverse the issues that have impaired the body. This attention is vital to recovery, as chronic back pain can lead to further and worsening discomfort over time. 

Some reasons for chronic back pain include:

  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis  
  • Degenerative disc disease 
  • Poor posture
  • Untreated or improperly treated spinal injury
  • And more

Let us help you find a safe, effective remedy to your pain. We all know the importance of a well-functioning body. When our performance is jeopardized, it can affect several aspects of daily life. Our chiropractic treatments will provide support for your back and spine and give you proactive methods to ensure you have the ability to keep your body healthy.

Can a Chiropractor Help My Back Pain?

This is an easy one. Yes!

An experienced chiropractor understands the complexities of back pain, what causes back pain, and how to correct back pain. Finding the root cause will give our team the insight necessary to determine the optimal healing program for you. 

We offer responsible, natural, non-invasive chiropractic solutions, corrective exercises, stretches, preventative care methods, and nutritional advice that greatly and actively contribute to your wellness goals. We want to keep pain out of your life for good, and we’ll do everything we can to help make that happen. 

Combining our vast selection of solutions offers you a personalized plan that nurtures an efficient healing process. Our treatments complement each other, so you get the best chiropractic care possible and get back to your life faster. 


Frequent symptoms of back pain include:

  • Stiff back
  • Backache
  • Soreness or tenderness in back
  • Muscle ache
  • Headaches 
  • Loss of range of motion or flexibility 
  • Dull low back pain
  • Chronic or continuous pain 
  • Stabbing and radiating (traveling) pain
  • Throbbing pain


It’s important to understand that not all back pain comes from one acute or sudden injury. Many of our patients have developed back pain over time without realizing they were harming themselves. 


Some examples of this include: 

  • Poor posture
  • Poor ergonomics 
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Sitting all day for work
  • Poor sleep patterns and form
  • Working all day on a computer or device
  • Poor workstation setup
  • Continuously moving and lifting heavy items 
  • Poorly moving and lifting items
  • Auto accidents and slip and falls 
  • Repetition of muscle and joint use, often due to sports, activities, or work


The issue with these patterns is that the body will normalize them, believing them to be correct, harming itself without the knowledge of doing so. 

Our Sylvania chiropractic care team will help you eliminate these bad habits, so you can maintain good body health throughout life. We’re ready if you are. Contact us today

What Happens When Back Pain Goes Untreated? 

When left untreated, back pain has the potential to spread and worsen. With pain comes the tendency to overcompensate in other areas of the body. For instance, you may walk with a limp or only use one arm so that you don’t further injure an already injured area. 

While this does sound like a rational solution, taking those measures can actually cause damage to the area that’s picking up the slack. 

The mechanics of the human body are incredible in that specific areas and parts support other specific areas and parts. If one area isn’t pulling its weight, that means an area that’s ill-equipped to do so must step in. This puts pressure on joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons that may not be able to provide the proper support, which can lead to further injury.  

Chiropractic care will help. Our reliable, safe methods reduce further damage. 

Issues that can arise due to untreated back pain include: 

  • Chronic or radiating pain 
  • Inability to work or socialize 
  • Inability to perform activities, such as exercise and sports 
  • Nerve damage
  • Sleep complications 
  • Depression
  • Headaches 
  • Sciatica 
  • Disc injuries 
  • Muscle pain
  • And more

Don’t let your back pain become more unbearable; we’re in this with you, and we’ll help you get better. 


Our chiropractor and therapists are an integrated team with the resources to get your life on track through safe, restorative methods.

Dr. Royer has been treating me for upper back pain for about 2 months. I have suffered from back pain for years. I recently moved back to Toledo and needed to find a new Dr. I am a firm believer that chiropractic care is an essential part of my overall well-being and health. Pain pills and back surgery are not good options for me to deal with my chronic back pain. I am impressed by how thorough Dr. Royer has been. He took a lot of time in determining the source/cause of my pain.

I have been treated by a handful of chiropractors over the years and had never been treated with the Graston Technique – so I was skeptical at first when Dr. Royer suggested it. I am surprised by how effectively it has worked for me.

 2 months ago, I couldn’t turn my neck from side to side. I am now able to look over my shoulder without discomfort, and my quality of sleep is much improved. I did feel instant relief from my pain after my first appointment, but my range of motion and overall tightness has steadily improved in the last few weeks with regular visits. Dr. Royer takes a lot of time to understand why and how you are hurting.

If someone is skeptical of chiropractors, I would recommend to them that they at least try Dr. Royer. He will take the time to explain what he is doing and why he thinks it will work in a straightforward, professional manner with no sales pitches or pressure.

While I was in Pennsylvania for a family trip, I began to suffer excruciating back pains and felt the need to contact a chiropractor. Years of working in Security began catching up with me that weekend and I searched for chiropractors in Toledo. My first visit with Dr. Royer was great, and reassuring. He has a great personality and a great amount of knowledge in his field. He was honest right from the beginning about the expected length of treatment and the costs involved. His initial examination was thorough and painless. … My back has never felt better. I am now able to go through my days at work, and at play, without the pain I felt before. I actually enjoy going to see him because of his professional attitude, great personality and his genuine concern for his patients well being both at the time of the visit and long term. I would certainly recommend Dr. Royer to anyone who is in need of Chiropractic care.

Jeff H. – Sylvania, OH

Dr. Royer has been treating me for about 6 months for low back pain, which I have suffered with for 20 years.  I had back surgery 8 years ago and after that numerous steroid injections without any relief. After being treated by several chiropractors over the past 20 years, I was recommended by a friend to see Dr. Royer.  After just 3 weeks of treatment, I was completely pain free and able to do things I haven’t been able to do in years. He is currently treating me for knee pain using kinesio taping and the Graston Technique along with teaching me how to do home exercises.  Dr. Royer is very thorough in his evaluation of a problem to determine the correct course of action to take in order to relieve the pain. I highly recommend Dr. Royer and his friendly and helpful staff to anyone who is suffering with pain.

Peggy S. – Maumee, OH

The amazing team at Harmony Chiropractic has helped me immensely over this past year. I have had intermittent issues w my lower back since age 16. Despite regular yoga and meditation over the last few years, the mental stress of working as a health care provider in 2020 esp, ended up taking a toll on my physical health. After pulling my back out three times within a few weeks, I decided to see Dr. Royer. With … twice weekly adjustments and Graston treatments, I was feeling back to normal functioning. Dr. Royer is always thorough, attentive, and is also excellent educator.  … This is a practice that truly cares about the well being of their patients. Thank you so much for you all you do! Very grateful to have found you guys 🙂

Mik S. – Perrysburg, OH

I have been dealing with neck and lower back pain for quite a few years. … Dr. Royer has used new techniques on me that are working for me. I have been to other chiropractic offices where you are there along with five or six other patients at the same time and see the chiropractor for 3 minutes. With Dr. Royer, he is the person working with you your entire visit. I would highly refer anyone to Harmony Chiropractic.
