Low Back Pain Risk Factors & Relief in Redwood City, CA

Low back pain is a cause for concern for many people because it is one of the most regular reasons for work-related disabilities in America. Statistics show that almost 80% of adults experience low back pain at some period in their lives. A chiropractic doctor for backpain based in Redwood City is always helping patients find relief for their low back pain concerns.

Here's a list of the most common risk factors that cause low back pain:


An occupation that requires heavy lifting, pulling, twisting and pushing can all put additional stress and pressure on the spine. Most athletes are prone to this condition when they push their limits. Even desk jobs may lead to low back pain, especially if you are sitting for an excessive period.


People from 30 to 50 years of age are most likely to experience and complain about low back pain.

Low fitness level

Those who are not physically healthy and fit tend to feel more low back pain. People with developed abdominal and back muscles can provide proper spinal support. As a result, they experience less back pain. 

Obesity or Weight Gain

Those who are overweight are more susceptible to having more low back pain due to increased stress on the spine from the extra weight the body is carrying.


During pregnancy, the ligaments in the pelvis become loose; and when the weight gain happens rapidly, it can cause low back pain. 

Your Low Back Pain is Related to Your Neck

If the top two bones in your neck – the atlas (C1) and axis (C2) – are out of alignment, it will bring about spinal tension. The tension or pressure in your spine can distort the signals that go to and from the brain. Improper messages lead to back pain, postural imbalance, and muscle spasms. 

Seek Upper Cervical Chiropractic in Redwood City, California

Upper cervical doctors are skilled in realigning the atlas, thus, reducing the pressure within the spinal cord. As a result, this leads to proper signals restored to and from the brain.
