Lower back pain can afflict anyone of any age. Gravity is responsible for this as it causes the lower back to endure most of a person’s weight. Lifting a heavy object or being sedentary for an extended period can bring about pain or discomfort in the lower back. Sometimes the pain subsides on its own. If not, it can become a chronic issue. This is the reason many people seek lower back pain relief in Redwood City.
Some people experience pain that runs beyond the lower back. It spreads down the sciatic nerve near the buttocks and into one of the legs. This type of back pain can be debilitating to point that it hinders a person’s ability to perform daily tasks, even the simplest ones such as taking a shower or dressing up.
Advanced Spinal Care Resolves Lower Back Pain
Chiropractic care has been known for many years as a great solution for back pain. Here at Advanced Spinal Care in Redwood City, California, I perform a subspecialty of the chiropractic profession that focuses on the top vertebra of the neck. This unique approach recognizes the critical role of the atlas vertebra, which has a direct impact on the lower back and the rest of the spine.
The atlas, or C1 vertebra, is unique due to its shape and wide range of mobility. However, these factors are the very reason it is vulnerable to misaligning. Injuries or even daily repetitive actions can result in atlas misalignment. This can bring about posture changes, muscle spasms, and pain. The proper alignment of the atlas bone is vital in the health of the entire spine. Adjusting this bone and correcting its position through a gentle and accurate technique is how upper cervical chiropractors can offer a solution to people with lower back pain. Most of the time, it is successful in providing long-lasting relief for patients. If you would like to reap the benefits of this kind of care, set an appointment with me.
