Dangers of Ignoring Back Pain

At any given time, there are 31 million Americans who suffer from back pain. Most experts agree that the actual number of sufferers is closer to 42% of Americans or 133 million people since the majority simply ignore back pain, or never report it to a doctor.

Back Pain Treatments

Most think that back pain can be ignored, dealt with by taking pain medication, or numbed with ice packs. Unfortunately, none of those methods can address the root cause of the problem which is caused by spinal misalignment where the vertebrae shift out of place, and puts dangerous amounts of pressure on the delicate nerves coming out of the spinal cord.

Christopher Reeve, the actor who played Superman in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s, suffered a spinal cord injury after being thrown from a horse during an equestrian competition. He became quadriplegic and had to be put in a wheelchair, breathe through a breathing apparatus, and eat through a straw. He died a few years later due to organ failure and cardiac arrest.

The impact of his fall injured his neck, creating spinal misalignment, which led to the bruising of his spinal cord and the delicate nerves coming out of it. These nerves are responsible for transmitting nerve energy from the brain to the rest of the body including limbs and vital organs.

Without proper nerve flow, the vital organs were unable to function correctly, heal, or fend off disease leading to Christopher Reeve’s untimely death.

This is obviously a worst-case scenario, but the nervous system plays a huge role in the function of the human body. Back pain may seem like an inconvenience to you, but if you truly understand how the smallest spinal misalignment can affect your health, you would want to get it fixed right away.

As the name implies, corrective chiropractic care aims to realign the spine back to health, eliminate nerve interference, and allow the body to heal itself. One of the most scientific, researched, and results-oriented techniques is called Chiropractic BioPhysics or CBP.

CBP has been shown to eliminate the source of back and neck pain within a few short visits, but more importantly than that, eliminates the source of fatigue, disease, and dysfunction in a couple of short months.
