Chiropractic Manipulation Helps the Painful Spine

The spine loves spinal manipulation! It undoubtedly welcomes what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with back pain relief and relaxation. When you bring your Mandeville spine to Mandeville Chiropractic, Mandeville Chiropractic treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Mandeville chiropractic treatment plan integrates alleviating, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Mandeville Chiropractic understands that our Mandeville chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation possesses an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation relieves back pain by affecting the pain messages formed by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Mandeville Chiropractic employs Mandeville spinal manipulation to hamper 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 irritated, maintain its height and do its job of supporting spinal mobility and acting like the shock-absorber between the spinal vertebral bones! That may diminish the essence of the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is vital to spinal movement and critical to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Mandeville Chiropractic cares for the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion challenges the spine, it responds. How? T2 MRI images show decreased value signifying that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it is so important to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Mandeville chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do respond to Mandeville chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height increases with traction. (4) That’s what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Mandeville Chiropractic 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 aggravated more easily. Mandeville Chiropractic’s Mandeville chiropractic care helps reduce that irritation and the associated Mandeville back pain.

Mandeville Chiropractic uses spinal manipulation to reduce back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Mandeville Chiropractic endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It’s all part of your Mandeville treatment plan.
