What is Segmental Dysfunction?
Segmental dysfunction is a chiropractic term for a localized misalignment or incorrect movement of one of your vertebrae. These spinal segmental dysfunctions can be cervical (from the neck), thoracic (mid-back), or located in the lower back (lumbosacral).
They can result from improper posture, poor sleeping positioning, repetitive movements, car accidents, abrupt trauma, and even simple displacement due to working out your back through the years.
Constrictions from surrounding muscles and ligaments can also exacerbate the situation and increase the pain you feel. The misalignment of the specific vertebrae induces pressure and stress on the spinal nerves, adjacent muscles, and blood vessels surrounding the affected joint.
Types of Treatment Available
Rarely does a segmental dysfunction require the need for surgery, but otherwise, the treatments we offer to help alleviate your discomfort include:
- Osteopathic manual therapy - to realign and manipulate the affected or weakened soft tissues via trigger point releases, along with muscular exercise techniques to strengthen and stretch out the restricted regions.
- Medications - are not recommended following manual treatment, but if needed, NSAIDs like Ibuprofen for swelling and acetaminophen drugs can be recommended for minor pain relief. If the severity of your pain will not withstand these aforementioned types of medications, muscle relaxants are also a possible option for more sedative effects to the body, but remember it is always best to have your body heal by itself as much as it possibly can for overall enhanced wellness.
We are ready to treat your spine alignment without needing the use of surgical procedures for the safest and most minimally invasive process. Rest assured you’ll be in the hands of great care because manual hand therapy is what we do best!

Lewis Pain & Physical Medicine Reviews
Super professionals!!! I have been with Dr. Lewis' & his staff for many years. My experience with them is second to none - A-1 practice!!!!
Loved all the staff. The gentleman I spoke the most with was extremely thorough answering any questions I had as well as one of the other staff members I spoke with to review what Dr. Lewis prescribed. I highly recommend Lewis Pain Clinic. Also, they get you in and out. There wasn’t any waiting around for hours.
The staff remains exceptional. I have been a patient here for almost 3 years and have never had a bad experience. Erica (the RNP) listens carefully to address any concerns I might have. As a retired RN, I’m pretty fussy as to who I let take care of me. I can honestly “highly recommend” this group for pain management.
Everyone is kind and happy to help! They’re ALWAYS on time or early which is a great relief! It feels good to be heard, taken seriously and have it understood that my time is just as valuable!
The entire staff is absolutely amazing! They truly care about you and try to make sure you’re taken care of!
