Contact Colopy Chiropractic to schedule an assessment and to relieve your pain today.

Lower Back Pain Q&A
Why is lower back pain a common problem?
Your lower back is vulnerable to injury and degeneration for two main reasons:

Designed to be flexible
The lower part of your spine — the lumbar spine — enables movement that lets you twist and bend. However, to gain flexibility, you lose the type of solid structural support that would stabilize the lower spine. This means the lower back is susceptible to injuries and vertebrae displacement.

Supports body weight
The lower spine bears the full weight of your upper body, creating constant pressure. Over time, the pressure can cause misalignment, damage the discs between vertebrae, and cause degenerative problems like osteoarthritis. The two lowest discs take the most strain and are most likely to herniate.

How can chiropractic care help my child?
Chiropractic care isn’t just for adults with chronic pain. This type of care helps children who are experiencing several kinds of problems, including:

Trouble sleeping
Digestive issues
Frequent colds and minor illnesses
Asthma


These health issues are often linked to problems with the nervous system, such as nerve irritation or misalignments in one or more joints. Making adjustments to your child’s joints helps relieve irritation and ensures that nutrients are fully absorbed, which helps boost their immune function.

Is pediatric chiropractic care safe?
Pediatric chiropractic care is safe as long as it’s done by a chiropractor with the right training and experience. Dr. Colopy has received credentials from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), which demonstrates his knowledge and skills in this type of care. He performs spinal adjustments and adjustments to other joints gently and safely.

What are the most common causes of neck pain?
Injuries
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries leading to neck pain. Be sure to get an assessment following an injury — even if you feel fine — because symptoms may not develop for several weeks.

Sprains and strains
Muscles and tendons are often sprained or strained by overuse and overextension. Two common examples are sleeping in the wrong position and sports injuries.

Disc herniation
Disc herniation — slipped or ruptured disc — is a common cause of neck pain. The pain may radiate down through the arms and hands, or you may feel numbness or tingling.

Poor posture
When your head is tilted forward or held at any angle for an extended time, the muscles, tendons, and ligaments work hard to hold that position, causing neck pain. This often happens from working at a computer, watching TV, and reading a book or tablet.

Repetitive motions
Dancing and swimming are just two examples of activities that require repetitive motions that can strain your neck.

Degenerative disorders
Osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis in the neck region.

Subluxations
Misalignment of neck vertebrae may develop from injury and degeneration.
