It is likely at some point in your life you will experience back pain, it affects 20% of the total population each year. There are many causes for low back pain. In the absence of a significant trauma, the cause is often due to previously undetected weaknesses developed over time in your neurological spinal support system. Recovery from past trauma to the body including ankle sprain, knee or hip problems can contribute or cause lower back pain.
Our approach at Active Health is to treat the cause of your back pain, and promote healthy movement patterns to help prevent re-injury. Our assessment includes how well your brain is able to communicate with your body, and of equal importance, how well your body is able to communicate with your brain.
Every joint in your body is rich with motion sensors which respond to friction caused from movement. Movement of your joints between your bones is responsible for activating your spinal support system. Better communication leads to better support for your back. Better support corrects the cause of pain allowing healing to occur.
The doctors at Active Health observe your global neurological movement. This provides a window to how well your spinal stabilization system is communicating. Our focus is to provide gentle specific adjustments to areas of the body which are not able to communicate with your brain optimally. Restoring communication allows the back to properly stabilize and heal.

Your brain 'runs' the most efficient 'programs' possible to keep you moving. The question to ask is whether it has become efficient for you to run a 'sick and tired,' or 'hurt and pain' program. Research shows pain medications are harmful to the body and brain and cause an actual increase in pain sensitivity over time. This might mean the pain you are feeling is due to and / or magnified by the pain medications you use. Opiods in particular are a risky option for pain management.
