Neck + Back Pain
All movements start with our core, which is our spine. Subluxations (misalignments of the spinal vertebrae) are one of the most common causes of neck and low back pain. When vertebrae are misaligned, they put pressure directly on spinal nerves, causing pain. These misalignments may affect and transform dysfunction to the nearby extremities. Muscle spasms may set in which can increase the pressure further. This extra pressure can cause even more inflammation and irritation, which leads to more pain. Often times stretching and massage may only temporarily relieve the pain because the misalignment has not been addressed. A chiropractic adjustment focuses on correcting the cause of the problem and realigning the frame of the body.
