Despite changing guidelines, doctors still prescribe opioids for about 40% of patients who complain of back pain. If you want to try and get rid of your back ache without popping pills, here are 5 things you can try first.
When the top bone of the neck is misaligned, the head is not balanced properly. As a result, changes take place throughout the spine to keep the 10 to 12-pound cranium straight.

The best way to relieve the pain and keep it from coming back is to fix the underlying cause – the misalignment that has set the chain reaction in motion.
