Nearly 32 million Americans suffer from back or neck pain every day. Approximately 80% of the entire population will experience back pain at some point in their lives. In fact, back and neck pain are the #1 cause of disability in the US.
Back and neck pain can be caused by a number of conditions. While back and neck pain can be a symptom of an underlying medical condition, most back and neck pain is caused by stress, muscle, tendon or ligament strain, disc issues, poor posture, or lifestyle choices. In these cases, vertebral subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, interrupt the nervous system as it communicates with the rest of the body. This interruption often affects the muscles of the back and neck causing pain.
Over-the-counter medicines or prescription drugs relieve pain by reducing inflammation in the muscles or further interrupting the nervous system’s signals to the brain. While a person may experience brief relief of their back and neck pain, medication does not address the underlying condition. Chiropractic care corrects the misalignments of the spine that cause spasms in the muscles. Once the body is functioning properly, pain will subside, and more importantly, function will return. However, chiropractic adjustments are not the only component in eliminating back and neck pain. Dr. Nagel is Mandan and Morton County’s only Certified Chiropractic Wellness Lifestyle Practitioner. With this certification comes an expertise in ways a patient’s diet, exercise routine, and lifestyle can impact their neck and back pain. As a part of a patient’s experience with 180 Family Chiropractic, Dr. Nagel teaches them how to perform appropriate stretches, change their diet, and add exercise to extend the body’s proper alignment and keep it functioning the way it should.
