Are you suffering with low back pain? It may be hard to imagine, but often times low back pain originates from the upper neck. To fully grasp this concept it’s important to understand how closely the neck and low back are connected. Sometimes the area of pain in your body is actually referred pain. Low back pain often stems from misalignments in the upper neck. Cervical spine misalignments often have a direct impact on the entire spine as well as the low back.
The top two bones in the neck are called the Atlas and Axis. If a misalignment happens to the atlas or axis it causes bones, muscles, and spinal tissue to shift. A misalignment as small as ¼ of a millimeter can cause your head to become unevenly balanced on your body. When the head is off balance the body goes through righting reflex, this keeps the eyes evenly aligned with the horizon line. If the body has to compensate for this process, it can wreak havoc on the function and balance of the entire body directly cause problems with the Slow back pain.
◦The top two bones in the neck house the brain-stem, which is the control center for the entire body. Signals pass through the Atlas and Axis and send messages to your body.
◦Pressure sensors located in the upper neck are hindered from allowing messages to and from the brain and body.
◦Balance is affected because the brain-stem is not able to send messages to the ears through the cranial nerves.
◦Blood flow and cerebral spinal fluid flow are slowed down due to the pressure being exerted on the brainstem.
