There are several different causes of low back pain. The two main categories are major trauma and minor trauma.

  1. Minor trauma are generally repetitive activities which individually do not cause back pain. However when minor trauma over time eventually starts to cause significant wear and tear producing back pain.
  2. Major trauma is more obvious and typically occurs as a result of an accident or injury.

The trauma typically injuries one of three tissue in the back.

  • The spinal disc
  • Spinal pinched nerves
  • Spinal joint jamming

Injuries to these structures in the back will cause pain which results in your bodies response to close down or tighten the area and your body does this by causing muscle tension or spasms.

The muscle spasms alone are frequently not the origin of the back pain but the bodies reaction to protect itself.


How Chiropractic Relieves Headaches




Chiropractic spinal adjustments have shown to be very effective in reliving stress and tension headaches.

The spinal manipulation is applied to the upper neck bones to relieve joint and nerve pressure. When the pressure is relieved the blood vessels relax allowing normal flow of oxygen and decreasing muscles tension.

Often with stress headaches the relief from chiropractic spinal manipulation is felt immediately.

Therapy to Relieve Headaches




There are several types of therapies we use in the clinic to relieve headaches. The treatment protocol is based on the goal of the physiological effects.

  • Electricla muscle sitmulaltion thrapy is commonly used to reduce muscle tension and block the painful nerve signal.
  • Traction is helpful for the relief of stress headaches if the headaches are the result of joint pressure. Traction therapy gently pulls the joint of the upper spine and head relieving joint related pressure and therefore stress headaches.
  • Ultrasound therapy is a mild form of deep heat. The deep heating effect of Ultrasound therapy is used to relax the muscles at the base of the skull and increase circulation. Decreasing muscle tension and increasing circulation is very helpful for the relief of tension headaches.
