Hi, I go to a chiro and it helps. Make sure that when you bend over that you don't twist your body, major issues for a lot of people. There have been times that I bent & twisted and literally locked up, bent over double and the thing that helps is for the chiro to "unlock" the lower back.
My issue is the atlas and axis get out of wack. There are also problems with c-3 thru c-6 but the big culprit is the atlas in my neck.
Hope this helps
