More Than Just Back And Neck Pain
Back and neck pain are typically synonymous with anything chiropractic. This thought process is very self-limiting and restricts why individuals actually come to the chiropractor. Back and neck pain are issues to be concerned about, it is the underlying issue that needs to be focused on. Your nerve system is your master controller of your entire body, when you have a bad experience in life such as back and neck pain you have to “blame” your nerves. Superficially along your muscles you will feel tension, fatigue, and often knots in your muscles. This is not normal to feel this way for extended periods of time! This chronic fatigue and tension that you “feel” in your muscles has to start from somewhere, and more importantly has to have a reason. If the tension and fatigue goes on for a prolonged period of time you will eventually develop back and neck pain.
All of this discomfort is produced from your nerve system. Let’s use a common example such as sitting down and on the computer for extended periods of the day. Sitting down and compromising “normal” curvatures of the spine by forward head position adds up over time. Having an improper posture for extended periods of the day creates misalignment in the spine. Misalignment creates nerve dysfunction. Nerve dysfunction is called a subluxation, which results in improper communication between your brain and the rest of your body. Surrounding muscles can become tight, sensitive, tense, or may even spasm. Soft tissue will tend to swell resulting in inflammation which causes damage to your body. Then, just then after this goes on for some time you finally have back and neck pain. Subluxation’s are silent in nature and go on for years just like cavities in your teeth! That is why regular chiropractic check-ups are essential for your overall health!
Health is simple, you need to listen to your body and do what it tells you! Do not let pain be a determining factor if you are healthy or not! Have your nerve checked before the back and neck pain set in!
