Chiropractors who specialize in the Chiropractic BioPhysics® technique – such as Dr. Katalina Dean of Midvale / Salt Lake City Utah – are trained to look at the entire structure of the spine, in order to assess and pinpoint the cause and source of the problem.
Back pain and neck pain (as well as headaches and migraines) are often due to spinal misalignments. While traditional chiropractic is great at providing temporary pain relief, only a CBP® certified chiropractor is able to correct the shape of the spine (much like an orthodontist using braces to realign the teeth) and address the root cause of pain and discomfort.
Only less than 1% of chiropractors around the world are CBP® certified, so Dr. Katalina Dean is amongst elite companies when it comes to her knowledge of the spine, spinal deformities, scoliosis, and postural problems.
Chiropractic and Back Pain
It’s critical to figure out when the back pain started in order to decide how to treat it. If the back has been hurting continuously since childhood, there might be a congenital disease or genetic condition such as scoliosis. Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that can result in visible posture misalignment, unbalanced shoulders and hips, and rib cage compression in severe cases.
It’s very possible that your chronic back pain is caused by postural misalignment. Your posture might change over time as a result of lifestyle and environmental influences. Over time, work activities that require extensive amounts of sitting—particularly if the workplace does not provide appropriate ergonomic support—can contribute to rounded shoulders, forward head posture (also known as “text neck”), and other postural imbalances.
Most often, back pain is created by misalignment resulting from an injury or stressful life event. However, there are many other cases where the root cause is more difficult to pinpoint. By looking at different environmental factors and wellness considerations, you may be better able to find what’s causing your discomfort.
