LOWER BACK PAIN
There are many reasons for lower back pain. Some of the common reasons are:

We examine your total health picture with the use of x-ray photography,clinical examinations and special spine and nerve tests to determine if you can be helped with chiropractic. Long working hours, over exertions, improper lifting, or just tension and stress may result in muscle spasms and spinal column stress. Muscle spasms can lead to headaches, backaches, lower back pain, stiff neck, insomnia and pain. In severe cases, especially with improper lifting, herniated or ruptured discs may occur. Chiropractic is directly concerned with stress and distortion of the spinal column and many related illnesses.

Your neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. Incredibly, the cervical spine supports the full weight of your head, which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.
The neck’s susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics.
Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear.
Neck pain can be very bothersome, and it can have a variety of causes. A neck adjustment performed by a Chiropractor works to improve the mobility of the spine and to restore range of motion; it can also increase movement of the adjoining muscles. Patients typically notice an improved ability to turn and tilt the head, and a reduction of neck pain, soreness, and stiffness.
