Lower Back Pain - Upper Cervical Adjustments Can Help

Lower Back Pain, Back Pain, Back Ache, Pinched Nerve, Numbness, Tingling

You may wonder how an adjustment to the top bones in the spine can help with your lower back pain. After all, as the name conveys, lower back pain feels like it is coming from the bones near the bottom of the spine. There are several reasons for this phenomenon, however.

Why a Person Feels the Pain Lower in the Back

An upper cervical misalignment causes the spine to leave its normal position. This affects the muscles of the entire back and not just in the neck area. This can cause the pelvic area to shift resulting in one hip being higher than the other and one leg being shorter than the other. As a result, the pain is not only felt in the lower back but generally on one side, perhaps even in one hip.

The problems can continue to progress because once the hips are misaligned and leg length varies, it affects a person's gait. In turn, a different walk can cause pain in the legs and feet and may cause sprains or knee problems.

How to Heal Lower Back Pain

Anyone can take a pill and feel better for a few hours, but the kinds of bone and musculature issues noted above do not go away simply because ibuprofen or acetaminophen has masked the pain temporarily. The only way to allow the spine to get back to a neutral position is to correct the upper cervical misalignment. That is what we focus on here at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Sacramento.

On our testimonials page, you can read about the example of Nora Sue. She dealt with such bad lower back pain that she had been using a cane for 6 years when she came into our practice. Within 3 months she was walking without it. We want to create that same kind of life-changing result for you.
