Low back pain is one of the most common reasons people visit the doctor. This pain can occur due to injury or normal wear and tear. It can also result from using your back too little or too much.

Neck pain is most commonly caused by vertebrae (bone) joint misalignments (malposition) and the resulting muscle spasms. Pinched nerves in the neck can cause pain, numbness and tingling (pins and needles) which can radiate into the arm, hand and fingers.

Whiplash is a common side effect of auto accidents and some serious sports injuries. According to Spine-Health, “whiplash is a term that describes injury to the neck that occurs as a result of a motor vehicle or car accident…” In these cases, the neck snaps forward and then snaps backward, causing severe pain and strain the neck muscles and vertebras. Severe impacts cause the neck to alter from the resting C shape to a curved S shape shortly after impact. Because the S shape is outside of the spine’s normal range of motion, there is an increased risk for damage to the ligaments and discs in the neck.
