Back Pain

With an Atlas Orthogonal Specialist

The common causes of back pain

On the back side of each spinal bone are the nerve-rich facet joints that are a common cause of back pain. Pain can be a sign these interlocking “fingers” aren’t moving properly. The discs between the spinal bones can be involved, too. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle of each disc to bulge, which puts pressure on nearby nerves.

 

What you can do for back pain

The traditional choices for back pain relief are:

  • Ignore the pain (eventually could lead to more serious spinal problems);
  • Rest in bed (some initial relief but will likely prolong the problem);
  • Seek therapy (risk stressing already malfunctioning joints);
  • Try medication (numbs the pain but doesn’t heal the body);
  • Have surgery (the last option for many patients).

Specific adjustments to the Atlas vertebrae can dramatically improve spinal function. Treating back pain in Stamford, CT, with an Atlas Realignment procedure can restore the way the spine works, heal discs and soft tissue, reduce disruption to nerve function, ease pain, and restore stability to the spinal column.

Frequently asked questions

Is some back pain normal?

Pain of any kind, at any age, is a sign that something is amiss. Pain is the way your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. Since we can adapt to minor aches and pains, we often ignore small issues that will eventually become more serious. While some pain may go away, if the underlying problem is left unattended, the problem may slowly worsen until it becomes more difficult and expensive to resolve.

Can muscle relaxers solve back pain?

We do not recommend muscle relaxers or pain medications. We would suggest using a cold therapy such as ice which can have an analgesic effect without the unwanted effects associated with some pain medications.

How does Atlas Realignment work?

Atlas Realignment treatments rely on sound waves to move the Atlas vertebrae back to its orthogonal or neutral position. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if the body is working correctly. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues. Specific spinal adjustments are designed to improve the communication between the mind and body.

Does insurance recognize Atlas Realignment treatments?

Many insurance companies cover at least a little of the care you’ll need. It’s convenient when an insurance company or some other third party helps pay the bill. But be careful! If you sincerely want your health back, we can help. Find out how we can make Atlas Realignment care affordable for you.
