It is the hub of your nervous system where messages to and from your brain travel to different parts of your body. It is so complex, that it takes years for you to master the ability to stand up straight, walk, and run. As we age, it is very common to suffer aches and pains in the lower back, typically because of poor posture and prolonged sitting, or previous injuries; however, aches and pains are a sign of underlying problems.

We ensure that you’ll achieve the best results for your back/neck pain with the Valley Rehab Center spine program. UPPER SPINE Pain or injury here is often responsible for headaches to the scalp and face. This area helps with overall body balance and the ability to rotate the neck. Conditions involving the upper spine often present as limmited motion and contribute to a forward head posture. As a result, this increases strain on the neck causing muscle pain and tension. MID SPINE Pain or injuries here can cause limited motion and mid-back pain. The nerves exiting this area are responsible for digestion, heart and lung function. Limited motion here also increases the amount of strain on the lower spine. LOWER SPINE A common area of low back pain and radiating leg pain.This area can cause a significant amount of back pain because it is supposed to rotate with walking. Furthermore, this is a common area for disc herniation that can cause pain, numbness and tingling into the buttocks, thighs, legs or feet.
