Low back pain (LBP) is one of the most common health complaints in the United States .
It is a problem that consistently leads to ER visits, surgeries, inability to work and overuse of painkillers & muscle relaxers. Opioid addictions and even death from opioid overdose has been on the rise .
Low back pain can come on gradually or quickly, and it is something that affects every aspect of your life.
The majority of low back & disc injuries are not severe enough for surgery, most physicians will give a prescription for muscle relaxers or NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). If pain persists, the next route is generally steroid injections. If that doesn’t do the trick, surgery is next in line.
Notice how none of these “first-line” treatments actually find and fix the problem?
Those band-aids and distractions from the pain keep you going till your spine wears out, now you are an ideal patient for surgery
Surgery comes with its own huge set of risks. Besides all the typical risks of surgery; anesthesia complications, hospital infections and more, there is a major risk that the surgery will not actually make a difference. Each year, 30,000-40,000 of laminectomy (decompression surgery) patients experience no change in their pain or have a recurrence . The rate of positive outcomes is debatable.
When you’re experiencing LBP due to a herniated or bulging disc, we first must ask why?.
Why did the spine or disc fail?
What is the cause?
Often the cause is a vertebral misalignment.
A misalignment of the bones in your spine in particular your neck can lead to issues in the body. We know this happens because the nervous system is being affected.
“determine the exact cause of your dysfunction”
A specialized form of chiropractic called NUCCA is designed to look at how your spinal misalignments affect your body.
With NUCCA, we do not force the misalignment back into place with popping or abrupt twisting. Instead, we work with the body’s own neurology. During your initial visit, we’ll do imaging to determine the exact cause of your dysfunction. We will also measure your posture and run three different computerized scans on your nervous system.
After reviewing your test results and imaging with you at your second appointment, you’ll receive your first correction. a very precise, gentle pressure on the top of your spine.
NUCCA’s focus is to align the top bone in the spine called the atlas, which surrounds the base of the brainstem.
There is a specific area of the brainstem called the reticular formation, and inside of this area is the vestibular nucleus. The vestibular nucleus is responsible for the control of the postural muscles of the spine.
when the top of your spine is in alignment, it can change the entire body’s posture and balance. In simpler terms, if we can get your head on straight, it fixes everything below it, like a domino effect.
Before you risk damaging your stomach with daily NSAIDs, getting addicted to opioids, or having a major surgery, give NUCCA chiropractic a try.
We have helped so many people who were close to giving up hope. There is a better way to fix low back pain. Better, safer, gentler, and more affordable.
