Back pain, particularly in the lower back, is a common reason why people seek chiropractic health care. Chronic low back pain can result from past injuries, inherited degenerative conditions (such as osteoarthritis,) physically demanding careers (masons, carpet layers, carpenters and so forth) and lifestyle choices. Low back pain is one of the most common causes of disability. Every year, tens of thousands of people seek chiropractic care for relief. If you live in the Greater Harrisburg Area, Christensen Chiropractic offers a unique and highly advanced approach to low back pain.
How Upper Cervical Chiropractic works for back pain:
While Dr. Christensen’s Upper Cervical technique – NUCCA requires a great deal of advanced training and involves precision x-ray analysis and exacting standards, it is also very logical and easy to understand.
Occasionally, patients know exactly how their back pain started, but idiopathic low back pain is much more common. Idiopathic literally means “with no known cause.” It refers to that time you bent over to pick up a pencil and – WHAM!! -- pain shot into your low back and you couldn’t get up. You ask yourself “WHY??” You had bent over to pick up countless items, why did this time cause such horrible pain?
The answer is simple. Much like your house, your spine needs a solid foundation. If your foundation fails, your house will begin to crumble. The same is true of your spine. When your hips are unlevel, you are vulnerable to injuries. One dropped pencil can lead to weeks of agony. Upper Cervical techniques, including NUCCA, are the only chiropractic techniques capable of stabilizing the spine by leveling the hips, restoring your body to balance. This will alleviate your pain AND protect you from future injuries.
