Chiropractor for Back Pain | Upper Back Pain Care

The majority of individuals will experience back pain of some sort in their lives, and the common response is to ignore it or take pain relievers. When we experience pain of any kind, that’s a signal from the brain that something is wrong, and taking medication only stops the signals, it doesn't fix the root problem.

Back pain isn’t a given- visit Athens Upper Cervical Chiropractic today.

When we have bad posture, spend all day sitting in an unsupportive chair, or spend years sleeping in bad positions or wearing flat shoes, our spine can lose it’s natural S-curve, and become misaligned. The upper two bones of the spine, the atlas and axis vertebra, will compensate to keep our head level, and over time this can lead to nerve issues and back pain due to the structural imbalance taking place.

Improve Your Structural Balance Today

When the spine is misaligned, this can put pressure and additional stress on the nerves, and they can become inflamed, infringed upon, and generally dysfunctional. This dysfunction is what people experience as back pain. As upper cervical chiropractors in Athens, it is our job to work with the spine to get it back into proper positions, to alleviate these symptoms. We have a top down approach to health- we work by correcting the alignment of the upper cervical spine, which will lead the rest of the vertebrae into alignment. We take x-rays and 3-d images to determine where the spine is misaligned, and we then analyze the images to create a treatment and adjustment plan to improve the structural balance of the body.
