Upper Cervical Care and Lower Back Pain

Sometimes the area that is hurting is not actually the area that the pain originates from. This is true with lower back pain. If a misalignment of the upper neck vertebrae, the cervical spine, is detected, it often has an impact on the entire spine and, in particular, the lower back. 
A misalignment of the atlas or axis bone, the top two bones of the vertebrae, causes bones, muscles, and tissue to shift. Even a misalignment of the only ¼ of a millimeter can cause the head to become unevenly balance on the body. The body then goes through what is called 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 of the ears, the balance of the body, and a number of other problems leading to low back pain. What happens in the body when the spine is out of alignment? Consider the following:

 • The top bones of the neck are the center of control for the body to communicate with the brain via the brainstem and spinal cord. 
 • Pressure sensors located in the upper neck are hindered from allowing messages to and from the brain and body.
 • Balance is affected because the brainstem 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.
