Should Back Pain Be Ignored?

The body is amazing. It comes with its own built-in warning system. When a person feels pain, their body is telling them that something is wrong. This should not be ignored. It is not a good idea to take medication to cover it over. Rather we need to find what is behind the reason for the pain.

This can be compared to a smoke detector in the home. If a person is asleep and a smoke detector goes off, it would be wise for them to investigate what made the alarm go off. To turn it off and go back to bed could have life-threatening consequences. Similarly, to ignore back pain can have consequences to our health. What might be a cause of back pain?

What to Do About Back Pain

These are just a few reasons a person may experience back pain. It is a good idea to make an appointment to see an upper cervical chiropractor as soon as you begin feeling back pain. At Schrier Family Chiropractic, we can help you to determine what the cause is. The method we employ is the NUCCA technique. It relies on precision measurements of the spine to see if a misalignment in the upper neck may be the cause of the pain. If we discover that a patient does indeed have a misalignment, we will address this with a specific treatment plan for that individual. Once the misalignment is corrected by a gentle, long-lasting procedure, it may just be the end of the patient’s back pain.
