How is Performance Place’s treatment of lower back pain different?

The Performance Place 5 Step Recovery Process should be trademarked (perhaps it is in the process).

Step 1 starts your recovery journey by giving us insight into an accurate diagnosis. Our skilled doctors rule in and rule out all of the diagnoses Dr. Google may have scared you into thinking you have. 🙂

Step 2: First-aid
We use a unique first-aid stretch to reduces pain radically within a single session. You should be very impressed (in most situations).

Step 3: Supportive Exercises
Rather than giving you a list of random exercises, these exercises are based on the mechanics of your diagnosis. They are low risk/ high reward, leaving you feeling looser than any massage could provide.

Step 4: Loading
Loading the body allows you to return to what you love. Reducing pain is important, but we all want to return to our formal selves. This is why humanity was always searched for the Fountain of Youth!

Step 5: Movement Variability Training
Movement is medicine. Avoiding movements can result in more pain (physical and mental) in the future. Allow us to take you through Step 5 so you can live life unrestricted. Play with kids, hit a baseball, sprint…. all is possible!

What types of lower back pain do you treat?

  • Disc Herniations
  • Pinched Nerves
  • Sciatica
  • Non-Specific Lower Back Pain
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Right Side Lower Back & Sciatica
  • Left Side Lower Back & Sciatica
  • Hip With Lower Back

Do I need to have a chiropractic adjustment?

No, we have many treatment approaches that we can use to accomplish the same reduction of pain you have read about in our online reviews. “Cracks” are not required to feel better. Not all chiropractic care requires an adjustment.

My MRI shows _______________, can you help?

The only way to tell is if you allow us to examine you. We will perform a VERY comprehensive exam, that can complement your MRI or X-ray findings. If we can not help you, we will let you know on your first visit.

Real Patient Testimonials


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Do you want to get better or waste time?
All I can say is that Dr. Sebastian Gonzales is the best sports chiropractor/ therapist!

You can shop around for cost all you want but I can tell you I wasted tons of money and lots of time going to multiple doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists only to be misdiagnosed and told to do the same stretches I’ve been doing for years and/or to quit running (not an option!).

It was only after I found Dr. Gonzales that I got better!

Don’t waste your time & money looking somewhere else! Go get better!
– Brenda B. Long Beach

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 10X
Dr. Sebastian’s knowledge and experience combined with always being at the forefront of updated knowledge and research is second to none.

He provides a detailed understanding of the issues, and presents a clear path towards achieving your individual goals. If you want 10X results, this is the place.

He is the BEST Sports Chiropractor in Orange County. I’m glad is his right down Adams and Harbor in Costa Mesa.
– Bob M. Costa Mesa

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Always Learning and refining his craft!!
Dr. Gonzales is always up on the latest research, always refining his craft and looking for ways that his patients can help themselves understand the issue, define the issue and correct the issue! Equipping his patients with the knowledge and tools necessary to regain and maintain control over their situation.

Thank you Dr G! I highly recommend Dr. Sebastian and Performance Place Sports Chiropractic to anyone that wants to recover and be an active participant in their recovery. Love that they are in Costa Mesa right by my house too!

**Patient, help heal they self!!**
– Dancoise C. Huntington Beach

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Fabulous care
Dr. Sebastian Gonzales, is a Miracle worker! If you have chronic pain, go see him! Don’t wait. I have been suffering with pain in my shoulder many months.

Went to him yesterday, he worked on it and evaluated and today is much better. I will be going back for more! I don’t love drive to Costa Mesa but worth the time.
– Jeanne E. Laguna Hills

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Excellent service
Excellent service and rehab facility, soft tissue work is amazing. Active Release Therapy worked well to reduce pain, especially for tight areas.

Sebastian is very knowledgable on sports injuries and very understanding about what you’re going through. His weightlifting methods to strengthen the body for functional movements are revolutionary in the chiropractic/ therapy field.

I would recommend a consultation with him even if your looking to improve athletic performance.
– Gerald M. Costa Mesa

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Very impressed
Dr. Gonzales has been such a huge help to me. I can’t thank him enough!

I love to run and am currently training for the Boston Marathon. I injured my hamstring and Dr. Gonzales got me right in.

He is so knowledgeable and is always very generous with his time in explaining things. To me, peace of mind is the most important thing, so I have truly appreciated his assessments of my injury, his Active Release treatments and his advice on a plan for the most productive recovery.

Thanks Doctor G! You’re the best.
– Laura D. Long Beach
