The stabbing & aching pain of a back injury can leave someone bedridden from days to weeks. This disability is an all too common occurrence. According to the Mayo Clinic, approximately 80% of Americans will experience back pain at one point in their life.
After trying many therapies, medications, hot/cold packs, stretching routines and even surgery, many people are still plagued with recurring back pain, which flares up several times a year.
The cause of this debilitating injury may be higher up! When the top bone in your neck, known as the Atlas vertebra, is misaligned, it causes pressure & dysfunction to your brainstem. This condition is know as an Atlas Subluxation Complex (ASC).The brainstem controls all of the muscles that keep you standing up straight. So when there is dysfunction at this level, the muscles in the body tighten and constrict to protect the brainstem. This uneven muscle firing causes the body to twist up; joint pain and disc herniations may soon follow.
If an ASC is the root cause of your chronic back pain, other treatment methods are often just temporarily helpful at best.
