Many people believe that back pain is just a part of aging and if they ignore it and go on it may go away. Or they may feel that they will wait until it gets a lot worse before they deal with the situation. Both of these thoughts are dangerous to a person’s health and well-being. Before discussing what to do about back pain, let’s take a look at why it may be occurring.
It is vital for anyone experiencing back pain to seek immediate care, even if it seems minor. As the condition worsens, it becomes harder to repair. Most back pain conditions progress over time, but if they are caught early, they may not have to continue.
It may surprise someone to learn that the source of back pain often has to do with some kind of trauma to the head or neck. The body compensates for such trauma often leading to back pain or other health conditions.
As an upper cervical chiropractor, I work with my patients to find and then correct misalignments of the upper neck using a gentle procedure that does not require me to pop or force the spine into place. This is often all that is required to see the end of the debilitating effects of back pain.
