In the majority of cases, medication is prescribed for back problems. This can include muscle relaxers as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Steroid shots and various forms of surgery may also be recommended by a doctor. However, most people would rather care for back pain in a natural way. Here’s a simple solution that people are now flocking too.
The neck plays a major role in helping to maintain proper posture. When the upper cervical spine becomes misaligned, the rest of the back will follow. As a result, discomfort is often felt lower in the back even though the primary issue is in the upper neck.
Some shy away from chiropractic when experiencing back pain because they don’t want to be twisted and popped as is often the case when it comes to general chiropractic. Upper cervical techniques, however, are far gentler. Most use what is referred to as a low-force correction. Such a gentle adjustment can be more precise and hold longer. That means fewer visits and less cost to the patient. It also means that the body has longer to heal, and the spine can move back into place naturally. As a result, many have seen an end to their back pain.
