Chiropractic Manipulation Relieves the Painful Spine

The spine loves spinal manipulation! It certainly appreciates what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you take your Chicago spine to Chiropractic Care, Chiropractic Care treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Chicago chiropractic treatment plan combines alleviating, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Chiropractic Care knows that our Chicago chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation possesses an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation eases back pain by affecting the pain messages formed by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively slowed pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Chiropractic Care offers Chicago spinal manipulation to hamper the spinal disc irritation.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine depends on its water content to be healthy and not easily bothered by pain, maintain its height and do its job of maintaining spinal mobility and being the shock-absorber in the middle of the spinal vertebral bones! That may diminish the essence of the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is essential to spinal movement and critical to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Chiropractic Care cares for the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images show reduced value meaning that there is a loss of water content in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s the reason that it’s so vital to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Chicago chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Discs in the lower back do react to Chicago chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height increases with traction. (4) That is what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Chiropractic Care chooses to use and is proficient in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height increases by 17%, and spinal area opens by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area decreases. Spinal nerves are more susceptible to irritation. Chiropractic Care’s Chicago chiropractic care helps lessen that irritation and the associated Chicago back pain.

Chiropractic Care uses spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Chiropractic Care endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It’s all incorporated into your Chicago treatment plan.
