What Can Cause Inflammation?


While inflammation can take many forms in nearly every part of the body, it commonly occurs within the low back, mid back, and neck. Pain usually arises from microtears and strains caused by:

     Heavy lifting

     Repetitive motion

     Sudden impact

     Poor posture

     Lack of quality sleep


How can Inflammation Be Treated?


A study published in The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that Chiropractic adjustments helped reduce the production of two inflammatory cytokines. In other words, Chiropractic care can treat inflammation without the need for drugs or opioids, reducing the risk of harmful side effects associated with certain types of medication.
