Why A Small Tear Can Be So Painful!

Most people have experienced back pain at one time or another in their lives. You make a movement you've done a million times before, you feel a twinge of pain, and suddenly it's getting worse by the minute.

Many times the reason for this pain is that there has been a minor tear of the teeny-tiny deep (intrinsic) muscles of your spine. The deep muscles of the spine are over 50% neural tissue, and their purpose is not to move the vertebrae, but rather to constantly calibrate the need for stability vs. movement, so with a slight glitch in your spine, a muscle gets a minor tear which is then amplified to the larger muscles of your back, and before you know, you're in pain!

Chiropractic care (and I have found this to be especially true of Network Chiropractic) re-educates the spinal-neural system so that it is better able to constantly adjust to the demands of movement and stability that we constantly place upon ourselves.
