Preston Chiropractic Healthy News from Chiropractic Associates – July 2017

 

Spine Treatment Preferred

Manual therapy spinal mobilization is preferred over physiotherapy by chronic back pain patients with disc degeneration for back pain intensity reduction and disability. (1) Not surprising to Chiropractic Associates at all! The hands-on effect of mobilization is comforting; the motion elicited is healing. That is just what chiropractic presents – comfort and healing! Chiropractic care strives to initially calm and ease pain then add in exercise for continued pain relief and healing via strengthening to avoid future back pain. Back pain relief is a team effort!  Taking advantage of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management offers the best of both worlds: gentle stretching treatment to painful segments that drops intradiscal pressures and at-home care like exercise, hot/cold therapy and nutrition to enhance the pain relief and recovery. Chiropractic Associates is equipped to share the Preston back pain relief via Cox Technic with our Preston chiropractic patients!

TIP of the Month: Vitamin D for the Degenerated Disc

Nutritionally, Vitamin D is such a good vitamin! Vitamin D reportedly helps bone and mood and overall health. In studying the disc of diabetic rats, researchers find a new benefit: Vitamin D may well prevent and treat degenerative changes in the degenerated disc by enriching the disc’s content of transforming growth factor-β and insulin-like growth factor-1. (2) What is your Vitamin D level? Let us find out together, you and Chiropractic Associates! If it is low, your Preston chiropractic treatment plan will incorporate Vitamin D recommendations from your Preston chiropractor!
