They may feel it is due to their job, old age, or other issues. When people seek relief from primary care doctors, 90% of the cases are deemed common nonspecific back pain. This leaves patients with few answers and a lot of frustration.

Options for back pain begin at using ice packs and mild pain relievers and extend to cortisone injections and surgeries to correct the problem. None of these promise foolproof results, and patients are frequently disappointed in the results they get.

It is important to realize that back pain involves more than just the bones of the spine. Muscles, ligaments, and other supporting structures all play a vital role in spine function. This means that a problem can exist in one area of the spine but be the result of a problem in another part of the spine. In many cases, low back pain is caused by a misalignment in the upper neck.

How Lower Back Pain May Start in the Neck

The vertebrae have the important job of protecting the spinal cord. This area of the body is the communication highway between the brain and the body. Nerves branch off the spinal cord and send signals to and from all parts of the body. If a misalignment has occurred in the top bone of the neck, called the atlas, pressure may be placed on the brainstem, thereby hindering communication. Tension is also created in the spine, and the body begins to compensate for the misalignment. Often this creates issues with posture and muscle imbalances.

At Scenic City Clinic of Chiropractic, we use a gentle method to correct these misalignments. We do not pop or twist the spine into shape. Rather, the method used allows the bones to move naturally back into place. One a misalignment is corrected, damaged tissue and nerves can be repaired, and this often leads to the elimination of back pain.
