An often-overlooked cause of back pain is an upper cervical misalignment. When the C1 and C2 at the top of the neck are out of position, the rest of the spine moves to compensate. This can cause soft tissue damage, set degenerative problems in motion, and even lead to nerve compression. Correcting the initial misalignment in the neck can slow or stop degeneration and give the body the time it needs to heal.
Upper cervical chiropractic offers low force corrections that are gentle, safe, and long-lasting. To learn more about this very specific type of chiropractic, contact a practitioner near you.
