Finding the Root Cause of Your Lower Back Pain

If you’ve ever experienced lower back pain, you are certainly not alone.  At some point in their lives, over 80% of adults have a bout of lower back pain, usually related to some type of job-related injury.  Lower back pain doesn’t discriminate.  It affects men and women equally as often.  It can start suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere, or it can come on a little bit at a time, getting worse from day to day.

Chances are, if your lower back pain wasn’t just a one-time episode, you’ve tried stretching, exercising, strengthening, massage, and everything in between.  You may have even tried a general chiropractor to treat your lower back pain without results that lasted.  The reason could be that the pain you’re experiencing in your lower back may be a compensation for a problem that’s happening elsewhere in your spine.

The Neck and Your Lower Back

Your spine is connected by many structures – muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints to name a few.  Because of the way the uppermost vertebra in the neck is shaped, it is the most likely to misalign.  When this occurs, it causes a cascade of compensations throughout the spine, leading to postural distortions, muscle spasms, and imbalance.  This may not be something you notice right away, but over time, these imbalances create wear and tear, eventually causing symptoms in your lower back, even though the origin of the problem is actually in the neck.

I am trained in NUCCA, which is a very precise and gentle way of addressing misalignments of the atlas vertebra, the topmost bone in the neck.  Correcting misalignments of the atlas allow for the compensations throughout the spine to normalize over time, which can relieve pressure on the vertebrae, discs, and muscles of the lower back.  By correcting the problem at the root, we are able to help people achieve lasting relief from low back pain.
