Chiropractic Manipulation Relieves the Hurting Spine

The spine appreciates spinal manipulation! It undoubtedly is thankful for what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with back pain relief and relaxation. When you take your Preston spine to Chiropractic Associates, Chiropractic Associates treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Preston chiropractic treatment plan includes alleviating, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation stops back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Chiropractic Associates understands that our Preston chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation reduces back pain by interfering with the pain messages created by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively slowed pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) Chiropractic Associates offers Preston spinal manipulation to stop the painful irritation of the spinal discs.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine relies on its water content to be healthy and not easily bothered by pain, keep its height and do its job of supporting spinal mobility and acting like the shock-absorber between the spinal vertebral bones! That may simplify the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is essential to spinal movement and important to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Chiropractic Associates cares for the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images reveal reduced value signifying that there is a loss of water content in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That is why it is so important to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Preston chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do react to Preston chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height increases with traction. (4) That’s what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Chiropractic Associates chooses to use and is well-experienced in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height enlarges by 17%, and spinal area increases by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area decreases. Spinal nerves are more susceptible to irritation. Chiropractic Associates’s Preston chiropractic care helps lessen that irritation and the associated Preston back pain.

Chiropractic Associates offers spinal manipulation to reduce back pain. Accompanied by spinal manipulation, Chiropractic Associates endorses nutritional supplementation with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It is all part of your Preston treatment plan.
