Reducing or eliminating lower back pain is possible. The first step is to examine the overall health of a person’s spine. The upper cervical spine, in particular, plays an important role in this. Even a very slight misalignment may impact the entire spine and even a person’s overall health.
Because of this connection between the upper cervical spine and the entire back, an upper cervical chiropractor is in a good position to help a patient cope with lower back pain. Upper cervical chiropractic is often a very cost-effective means of coping with back pain. It doesn’t need to be frequently repeated as is the case with taking medication or getting cortisone shots. After a detailed examination, a personalized plan of care is designed to help each patient obtain the desired results. After this is done, adjustments are only given as needed.
Upper cervical care differs significantly from general chiropractic. There is no popping or forcing of the spine into alignment. Instead, a gentle adjustment provides long-lasting relief and gives the rest of the spine time to heal from the effects of the misalignment.

Exercise and Upper Cervical Care—A Great Back Pain Relief Combo
Mild exercise to strengthen the back can also be a vital part of the healing process. As back and abdominal muscles are strengthened, the spine becomes more likely to stay in proper alignment. When combined with education on maintaining good posture, this can prove invaluable in helping adjustments to last as long as possible. This also reduces patient costs and maximizes healing.
Everything from proper nutrition to a good sleep position play a role when it comes to back pain. When the upper cervical spine stays in proper alignment, blood flow, cerebrospinal fluid flow, and nerve function can remain at optimal levels. This can improve may aspects of health including back pain. Advanced Upper Cervical Chiropractic is happy to offer free consultations to help you determine if this is the right way to combat your back pain.
