Low Back Pain And Muscle Tone Imbalance

The majority of back problems are the result of imbalanced musculature. Others suffer because of disc bulges and a smaller percentage of bone spurs that are encroaching on the spinal cord or the spinal nerves. Each of these issues is caused by imbalances in the posture that predisposes the body to adapt to tight muscles and if left unchecked long enough the person's structural system will change the shape of the spinal vertebra to accommodate the new stresses resulting from postural imbalance. No amount of drugs or injections will correct this underlying cause. If you are looking for a solution, not a band-aid then the Upper Cervical approach is for you.

Upper Cervical Care and Low Back Pain

At Upper Cervical Centers we specialize in correcting the underlying cause of spinal imbalance. Spinal imbalance starts in most cases from trauma. Whiplash injuries, sports accidents, slip, and falls all can cause minor misalignments to the upper cervical spine(neck). In this region rests the brain stem. One of its many jobs is to control spinal muscle balance.
When the Upper neck region is injured the nervous system responds by tightening muscles in the affected region. This creates a cascade of adaptations to the spine resulting in parts of the body being affected that are far removed from the injury site. Whiplash injures the supporting soft tissues that support the connection of the neck and head and as a result, spinal misalignment in that region becomes the primary cause of most back problems. Current research shows that faulty biomechanics in the neck cause muscle tone imbalances throughout the entire spine including the low back.
