Transform Your Low Back
According to the National Institute of Health, almost everyone has back pain at some time in their life most between the ages of 30 and 50. It costs Americans over $50 billion dollars each year to manage it. The causes of low back pain are numerous, degenerative discs, leg length difference, arthritis, however, often overlooked is the health of the nervous system, the engine that drives the body, allows it to adapt, and to heal. It is not uncommon to find the body making structural changes in order to preserve function or unable to make posture adaptations in daily life due to a lack of communication in the nervous system.
A compromise to the health and integrity of nervous system communication starts, most commonly, at the brainstem and spinal cord. Misalignment of the top two bones in your neck (the upper cervical complex) from injury or stress can interfere with central nervous system function. When these bones are misaligned it is like a link on a chain being twisted causing the reset of the bones in the back to misaligned leading to structural problems in the low back and an inability for the low back to health. Upper cervical chiropractic care restores the alignment and proper movement of these bones surrounding the brainstem and spinal cord, allowing your nervous system to function at 100% and heal your body from the inside out.

“I’ve always been in pretty good shape. I believe its because of chiropractic care that I’m able to stay as active and healthy as I do. I’ve had issues with allergies and through Dr. Andrea’s care and eustachian tubes adjustment, I am doing very well. With upper cervical chiropractic care I think clearly; I’m energetic and able to enjoy horseback riding and mountain biking with less lower back issues because of my care. Recently I broke my leg, with upper cervical adjustments, massage, as well as my rehab program, I was able to heal faster than normal. Dr. Andrea is a wealth of knowledge in a multitude of areas including those outside of chiropractic! ”
“Transformation Chiropractic has helped me so much with my lower back pain. I’m happier now; I’m not as cranky; I sleep better and longer. Also I get less headaches and I’m able to workout for longer periods of time. I don’t slouch anymore and also I have less shoulder pain. When I play basketball I’m able to sprint longer and also do defense slides, which engages your lower back a lot. I’m sleeping, swimming, shopping for longer periods of time, and playing basketball without pain!” -Keri B., 17 years old
“My active time during the day was limited due to severe lower back pain. I had a stabbing sensation that was debilitating. I had difficulty cleaning and standing for long periods and by the end of the day I was wiped out from the pain. After two or three visits with Dr. Andrea, my lower back pain was gone! This changed my life so much as I had become used to the constant, nagging pain in my lower back. I can do my household chores and still have the ability to do other things in the day. Before, it was a choice between household chores, or things I enjoy doing. Dr. Andrea is very knowledgeable and can help with suggestions on how to lead a healthy lifestyle.” -Melissa M., 27 years old
