Chiropractic Manipulation Helps the Painful Spine

The spine is grateful for spinal manipulation! It certainly is thankful for what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you bring your New Roads spine to New Roads Chiropractic Center, New Roads Chiropractic Center treats it gently, safely and effectively. The New Roads 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. New Roads Chiropractic Center knows that our New Roads chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation relieves back pain by hampering the pain messages produced by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively interfered with pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center uses New Roads spinal manipulation to discontinue the spinal disc irritation.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine depends on its water content to be healthy and not easily irritated, keep its height and do its job of maintaining spinal mobility and being 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) New Roads Chiropractic Center takes care of the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion taxes the spine, it responds. 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’s the reason that it is so vital to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to New Roads chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do react to New Roads chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height increases with traction. (4) That’s what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation New Roads Chiropractic Center 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 diminishes. Spinal nerves are irritated more easily. New Roads Chiropractic Center’s New Roads chiropractic care assists in reducing that irritation and the associated New Roads back pain.

New Roads Chiropractic Center provides spinal manipulation to reduce back pain. Along with spinal manipulation, New Roads Chiropractic Center recommends nutritional supplementation with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It is all incorporated into your New Roads treatment plan.
