My Pain Is Always Up My Whole Right Side...

Low Back Pain Can be the
Cause of Neck and MidBack Pain Too
When we talk about pain a major question is the location of it. Typically if you have low back pain, there's a chance you can get mid back pain or neck pain because of it. Why is that?

Reason #1 is that the whole body is on big kinetic chain. It's totally attached and works together. So if one part is off, so goes the rest.

Reason #2 is that if your posture or alignment is altered on that side of the body then there is a greater chance more symptoms appear on that side. Let's say someone walks in the office with one hip an inch higher than the other. Do we think the shoulder may be high on that side too? There is a very good chance...

Reason #3 is wear and tear often occurs unevenly. Pretend your can is out of whack, the right wheels always wear out faster than the left. Maybe you only go around right hand curves on your way to and from the office? More than likely something is off balance and it causes uneven wearing. The body is similar. Maybe you are completely right hand and foot dominant. After years of physical work and playing sports you not only have had injuries but more breakdown on that side.

However you slice it I would get it checked. Call our office to schedule now!
