Misaligned Spine: The Cause of Back Pain

Back pain is the number one complaint people bring to their doctors in the United States. Its cause stems from several conditions including herniated discs, sciatica, stenosis, back spasms spondylolisthesis, and chronic low back tightness and stiffness. Often, back pain results from years of improper movement due to postural misalignments and imbalances in the body, which, over time, leads to chronic and debilitating pain.

A healthy "neutral" spine should be in the shape of an "S" curve, allowing for the full range of motion with no limitations or restrictions! Due to today's technologically driven society, most people' spines have taken on the shape of a "C" curve. Consequently, the load-bearing on the spine becomes distributed unevenly. Once this occurs, the body's natural full range of bodily motion becomes limited. The pain drives other parts of the body to overcompensate, ultimately creating misalignment in the shoulders and hips. Add concave curvature of the spine, and what you end up with is daily pain throughout the body.

Most symptoms are not the cause of our back pain. For example, a herniated or bulging disc isn't the cause but a symptom of the problem… the root cause is a misaligned spine that lacks its healthy "S" curve design.
