Back pain due to Spinal Misalignments?
Even though the spinal column is a durable structure, individual vertebrae can become misaligned and than interferes with the transmission of nerve impulses; when that happens, it's called a vertebral subluxation; It is also a common causes of back pain. Yet, much everyday action can result in Spinal Misalignments. Picking up weighty objects, taking part in extreme sports, and even sitting for
extend periods at a computer can all put stress on the vertebrae and create misalignment.
Chiropractic care is most effective to relief this type of back pain. Chiropractic take care misalignments by manipulation (chiropractic adjustment ).
People with chronic low-back pain treated by chiropractic care showed greater amelioration and wellbeing at one month than people treated by family physicians. Satisfaction scores were higher for chiropractic patients. A higher proportion of chiropractic patients (56 percent vs. 13 percent) reported that their low-back pain was better or much better, where as nearly one-third of medical patients reported their low-back pain was worse or much worse.” – Nyiendo et al (2000), Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics
In a Randomized controlled trial, 183 patients with neck pain were randomly allocated to manual therapy (spinal mobilization), physiotherapy (mainly exercise) or general practitioner care (counseling, education and drugs) in a 52-week study. The clinical outcomes measures showed that manual therapy resulted in faster recovery than physiotherapy and general practitioner care. Moreover, total costs of the manual therapy-treated patients were about one-third of the costs of physiotherapy or general practitioner care.

The spinal cord is an continuation of the brain, sending nerve transmission to control and to coordinate the functions of every organ, system and cell in your body. If there is interference from brain to tissue cells that will cultivate the beginning stages of DIS-ease. The spines have 24 freely moving bones. They protect over 3,000,000 nerves that transmit between each vertebra through small holes. Any small misalignment can interfere with nerve energy; than evidence of movement disorders and signs of subluxation gradually start to develop and the patients don't know why they have them.
For example, subluxation (misalignment ) in the neck region will interfere with the nerve function, cause in headache, nervousness, insomnia, high blood pressure, chronic fatigue, dizziness, stiff neck, pain in the arms or may be bursitis. Most people take all kinds of medication for these DIS-eases, not knowing the cause of their problem is in the Spine (neck).
Misalignment in the upper-back can interfere nerve function, causing asthma and difficult breathing, depression, fatigue functional heart conditions, .
Subluxation in the lower back can result constipation, bladder trouble, irregular menstrual trouble such as painful or periods, sciatica, backaches, difficult or too frequent urination, low circulation in the legs, edema in ankles, weakness in the legs.
