What Are the Causes of Spinal Problems?

Spinal problems can be caused by a variety of factors and make include the following:

  • Medical conditions, like degenerative disc disease
  • Normal Aging
  • Sports injuries
  • Car accident
  • Spinal imbalances
  • Postural problems
  • Nutritional deficiencies

When spinal problems occur, you may begin to experience degeneration of your spine. Degeneration happens in three phases that start out mild and progress to severe. Left untreated, spinal degeneration may result in serious declines in quality of life. The stages of degeneration are best described in this way:

Phase One

In phase one, a misalignment or malfunction occurs. Surprisingly, this phase may have no symptoms at all. You may not realize you have a problem at this point.

Phase Two

Phase two involves the narrowing of your spinal column. Discs and vertebrae become compressed. At this point, you may begin to suffer aches, pains, and fatigue. During this phase, your posture may change and you may develop painful bone spurs.

Phase Three

Phase three causes major life changes. As bone becomes deformed, you may experience mobility issues, immobilization of joints, and nerve atrophy. It may be difficult to stand, walk, or lift.

Lacey W.'s 5-star Google review for Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

I have been seeing Dr.Tammy regularly since 2016. I have Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and require consistent care due to multiple joint subluxations which contribute to widespread chronic pain.

I look forward to my weekly appointment and feel so much better after getting fixed up (adjusted)!

All Chiropractors are not equal when considering treatment for EDS. The key is finding someone who is gentle but effective, understands the challenges of the Hypermobile body, listens, feels, and sees how the body is moving and adjusts the treatment accordingly. Dr.Tammy checks all those boxes! She is a skilled practicioner who has taken such excellent care of me I also have entrusted her with my daughter's care as well. We both see her regularly and feel she is a vital part of our care team. EDS has no cure and managing symptoms becomes the treatment plan. For us, Chiropractic care and Physical Therapy are the bread and butter to managing our subluxations, reducing pain, and improving daily functionality. We are so fortunate to have found Dr.Tammy Atkinson at the Chiropractic Wellness Center in Cary!!

Ivan S.'s 5-star Yelp review for neck and upper back issues.

Dr. Tammy's refined and careful touch has helped me tremendously with my neck and upper back issues. She's been over on Kildaire Farm Rd. for over 10 years. I've appreciated the various therapies she offers in addition to the standard adjustments.

Joani C.'s 5-star Facebook review for best Chiropractic

Dr. Tammy is the best. Very easy to schedule appointments and although 1 session does not immediately fix your issue - I always feel 150% better after the first appointment than before I walked in. She is kind, gentle and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Chiropractic Pain & Injury Center to anyone looking for the best Chiropractor!
