When Your Lower Back Vertebrae Are Out Of Alignment

Back pain is one of the leading causes of missed work across the world, and it is also one of the leading causes for doctor visits. Considering all that, it is no surprise that back pain causes major stress on the mind and the wallet.

However not all hope is lost. The Backrack is here to ease your concerns.

The Backrack is a device that has been created on ground-breaking technology to help you relieve back pain!

The Backrack is essentially a wooden rack specifically created to decompress the spinal column. The spine is very unique in its design and structure, split into three distinctive parts (cervical, thoracic, lumbar). The Backrack mirrors this design so when you lie down on it your spine naturally fits in the right position. There are few specially designed exercises that can be performed conveniently at home, office, or anywhere you want to relieve the pain you feel.

But first, what leads to back pain in the first place?

Although the pain can occur at any level of the spine (cervical spine, thoracic spine, and lumbar spine), it is most common in the lumbar spine, which is commonly referred to as the lower back.

One of the most common causes of back pain is spinal compression. Spinal compression is a medical term that describes a form of spinal deformity. Compression often happens when extra pressure is applied to the spine which it can’t handle, so it shortens in length. This may also lead to other complications.

Another common reason for back pain is spine misalignment. This is often seen in herniated discs and other similar cases where the disc protrudes out of its designated place.

A misaligned spine can also occur due to a misplaced vertebra. When one or more vertebrae slip out of their regular place it is also referred to as spondylolisthesis, which can be split into multiple types based on its origin – isthmic spondylolisthesis, degenerative spondylolisthesis, traumatic spondylolisthesis, iatrogenic spondylolisthesis, congenital spondylolisthesis and pathological spondylolisthesis.

Spondylolisthesis causes can be attributed to each category mentioned above as follows:

Isthmic – caused by a fracture in a specific bone formation on the spinal column, called the pars interarticularis.

Degenerative – due to degeneration of the spine.

Traumatic – originating due to a physical trauma that placed a high amount of pressure on the spine to push one or more vertebrae out of place.

Iatrogenic – occurs as a side-effect of spinal decompression surgery.

Congenital – caused by birth defects.

Pathological – due to a different pathology that affects the strength of the spine (such as various bone diseases that weaken the spine).

Regardless of the cause, when the slippage is located in the lower spine, it is referred to as lumbar spondylolisthesis.

What are the symptoms and possible complications of lumbar spondylolisthesis?

Because a slipped vertebra in the lower back can alter the spinal curvature, it can disrupt the spinal alignment and lead to problems such as:

  • Lower back pain.
  • Reduced range of motion in the lower back.
  • Sensation of tingling or weakness in the lower back or legs.
  • Pinched nerves (such as pinching of the sciatic nerve – leading to sciatica)
  • Severe spondylolisthesis can affect the spinal cord, as the spinal canal can become narrower and can be affected by spinal stenosis. Apart from pinching nerves and leading to low back pain, if the spinal cord itself becomes pinched it can cause symptoms such as weakness in the lower back and legs, as well as loss of bladder and/or bowel control. This should be addressed immediately as it is considered an emergency.

Spondylolisthesis Treatments

There are many other products which you can find that claim to help relieve your back pain caused by spinal misalignment. However, those devices are usually too complicated to use or require professional help to use them. Other medical devices do exist, but the Backrack is far superior in design and in ease of use and it is a clinically tested product.

The Backrack works by aligning your spine back in its original position through spinal decompression therapy – without the need from chiropractic care from a chiropractor. This is made possible by the nodules and the unique shape of the Backrack.

The Backrack is also unique in its application. It works on the root problem rather than working on the symptoms. This allows your spine to heal itself and once the cause has been removed, the pain doesn’t come back.

It is safe and compact, so you can easily tuck it away when not in use. The Backrack is already being used by chiropractors, physiotherapists, and other medical professionals to treat their patients. You can use it in the comfort of your home without having to take the time out of your day to go and visit someone as all the information is provided on our website.
