Chiropractic Back Pain Treatments in Kansas City
Are you experiencing back pain?
Back Pain can be caused by stress, muscular tension, lifestyle factors, poor posture, disc irritation, and irritated nerves. Back pain is often the result of improper posture and stabilization unless acute trauma has occurred. Poor breathing strategies do not allow the spine to properly stabilize causing other muscles to overcompensate leading to back pain.
