St Paul ChiropractorA minor fender bender is not something that should be taken lightly. Most importantly, your health should be evaluated after a car accident. Commonly, neck and back pain occurs in the form of whiplash. However, these symptoms don’t always occur immediately after the accident occurs. Instead, it can take a few days for the neck and back pain to develop. So, just because you feel fine after the minor fender bender, doesn’t mean that you should go on with your regular lifestyle without seeking a medical professional. Instead, if you are in the St. Paul, MN area, stop by Caron Chiropractic Clinic, P.A., for a thorough evaluation of your neck and back pain after a car accident.

Chiro Treatment MNThe human body is a machine. In fact, it is arguably the most efficiently designed machine known to humankind. A popular home-fitness machine was once marketed by describing the human body as the only machine that gets stronger the more it is worked. When you consider a more familiar machine, such as an automobile, it is not difficult to understand that occasionally parts break down and need to be repaired or replaced in order for the automobile to continue functioning as designed.

As a practicing chiropractor in St. Paul, Minnesota I work with people all day long that have neck and back pain.  There are many different causes of neck and back pain, and there are many conditions that will lead to neck and back pain.  In this blog I will talk about where neck and back pain come from and what you can do to reduce or get rid of your neck and back pain.back pain

Pain is a sensory perception.  It is relayed to the brain via the sensory nerve called a nociceptor.  When this nerve which is located in your muscles and other soft tissues, and in your joints of your neck and back become irritated, they send a message to your brain of pain.  There are many other sensory nerves such as thermoreceptors which sense heat and chiroreceptors that sense cold.  These sensory nerves are also located in the tissues of your neck and back.  Anytime one experiences pain we no for certain that a nociceptor has been activated.

Lets look at the anatomy of the neck and back, and this will lead us to the different causes of neck and back pain.  There are 7 vertebrae in your neck and 17 vertebrae in your mid and lower back.  These vertebrae are separated by discs that work as shock absorbers.  The discs are in the front of your spine.  In the back of your spine are joints called facet joints.  These joints are encapsulated and fluid filled, and protect nerves that are exiting and entering your spinal cord which goes up to your brain.  There are many muscles, tendons and ligaments that attach to these bones of your neck and back, and these soft tissueadjustment also have nociceptors located within the tissues.  Neck and back pain occurs when there is a problem in the joints of the neck and back or in the soft tissues of the neck and back.  Chiropractors locate the specific problems in your joints and soft tissues and use many techniques to fix these problems.

The most common low back problem is within the discs of the low back.  Chiropractic adjustments or manipulations are the best known cure for these problems.  If the disc problem is too severe, surgery may be required to fix the problem.  In your neck and mid back problems within the facet joints, more commonly known as subluxations, are the most common cause of neck and mid back pain.  Chiropractic adjustments along with ergonomic education and exercise is the best cure for these problems.  If you should find yourself or someone you know has neck or back pain, your best course of action is to find a local chiropractor.
