Neck & Back Pain
Subluxations (misalignments of the spinal vertebrae) are one of the most common causes of neck and low back pain. When vertebrae are misaligned, they put pressure directly on spinal nerves, causing pain. Muscle spasms may set in which can increase the pressure further. This extra pressure can cause even more inflammation and irritation, which leads to more pain. And the cycle continues. Often times, stretching and massage may only temporarily relieve the pain because the cause (subluxation) has not been addressed. A Gonstead chiropractic adjustment focuses on correcting the cause.
If you suffer from neck or back pain, call and schedule a consultation with your San Diego Gonstead chiropractor in Carlsbad to see if you qualify for care.
