How your head affects back pain

By Staff | Jan 2, 2020

People who suffer from back pain experience strong, pulsating pain in the spine, numbness, tingling sensation, contractions, tender muscles, and sharp pains down the legs. Back pain makes it difficult for sufferers to sleep, sit, stand or flex the back muscles.

Common causes of back pain include upper cervical injury, inflammation, repetitive bad body postures, pregnancy, overweight, old age and overuse.

Here, we’ll focus on how head injuries affect the back.

How your head can cause back pain: Your back houses your spine. The neck vertebrae link the head and the lower spine. In fact, the head relies on the C1 and C2 vertebrae to facilitate easy movement and rotation. Violent blows to the head, repetitive bad postures, whiplashes or brain concussions can force the head into a lopsided position and overburden one side of the neck and spine. The spine bends in a bid to manage the irregular weight dispersion. This causes a head-and-neck misalignment that interferes with the nervous system function.

The twisted spine, reduced blood flow to the brain and inflammation in the spine all cause back pains.

How chiropractic care can help with back pain: Prior to the provision of care, the upper cervical chiropractic conducts diagnostic tests. If the test results reveal any upper cervical injury, the specific chiropractic will proceed to:

Administer adjustments that will help to realign the vertebrae. ?

Provide chiropractic care that will eliminate and reduce inflammation in the spine. ?

Give unique care that will reduce and get rid of your back pain.
