Low Back Pain Relief
Low back pain is the biggest cause of disability in the world, in fact 8 in 10 people have experienced back pain at least once in their life. It’s one of the most common things we see patients in the office for. You may be wondering, wait I thought they only adjusted the neck, how can that help the low back? The truth is that when you have an accident or injury in your life, it stresses the entire spine. This causes the spine to misalign as a unit. Even injuries like hits to the back or falling on your butt are going to have an influence on the head, neck, and entire spine. So when the spine misaligns it can create stress and pain throughout the body, it really just depends on the misalignment and which nerves are being irritated. This can result in uneven legs and uneven hips which can put a lot of strain on the low back.
So as a NUCCA chiropractor, I assess the spine as a unit and find the best angle to correct the entire misalignment as best as possible. This correction helps restore normal posture to the body – hips and legs balance to level, taking significant stress off the body including the low back. So a gentle adjustment to the neck can affect and improve low back complaints. Make sure to watch the video above to learn more!
