Neck and Back Pain Q & A

The Balancing Center

What is the anatomy of the spine?

In order to better appreciate the treatments at The Balancing Center, it's helpful first to review the anatomy of your spine to understand how the structure functions. Your spine is made up of 33 vertebrae that are divided into five sections:

  • Cervical -- the seven vertebrae that make up your neck
  • Thoracic -- the 12 vertebrae in your middle back
  • Lumbar -- the five large vertebrae of your lower back
  • Sacrum, which connects your spine to your hips
  • Coccyx, or tailbone

What causes neck and back pain?

When it comes to your spine, pain often originates in your cervical or lumbar areas. These two sections are responsible for the lion’s share of support and mobility in your spine, and it’s in these roles that they’re susceptible to problems, such as:

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated or ruptured disc
  • Whiplash (in your neck)
  • Stenosis (a narrowing of your spinal canal)
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Acute injury or trauma

While this list is by no means comprehensive, it touches on the most common neck and back issues.

What are the treatments for neck and back pain?

If you’re experiencing neck or back pain, it makes sense to seek out the help of those who have studied the intricacies of the spine and its effect on your body’s systems, like the doctors at The Balancing Center. In fact, there’s little that isn’t affected by your spine in one way or another as it provides support, mobility, and passage for your nervous system.

While chiropractic care focuses on your spine, the doctors at The Balancing Center go one step further with their comprehensive approaches to neck and back pain, including:

NUCCA

The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association devised a technique that focuses on your uppermost vertebra, the Atlas, with the knowledge that this small vertebra plays a critical role in the overall function of your spine as the liaison between your brain and your spine. By restoring full function and alignment to this area using mathematical calculations, it has a widespread balancing effect over all of your body’s musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

BEST

Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique, or BEST, is a procedure designed to reactivate and rebalance your natural healing systems, which may be working inefficiently.

NET

The Neuro Emotional Technique, or NET, is a technique that’s designed to ferret out stressors that activate your nervous system.

FMP

FMP, or Foundational Movement Practices, are a series of exercises that correct your posture and alignment, enabling your body to function without pain.

On top of these treatments, your doctor shows you how exercise and yoga can help maintain your neck and back health.
