Chiropractic Manipulation Benefits the Painful Spine

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

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Vancouver Disc Centers understands that our Vancouver chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation eases back pain by interfering with the pain messages formed 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) Vancouver Disc Centers employs Vancouver spinal manipulation to stop the spinal disc irritation.

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 play its role in maintaining spinal mobility and being 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 important to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Vancouver Disc Centers cares for the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it responds. How? T2 MRI images reveal decreased value signifying that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That is why it is so vital to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Vancouver chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Discs in the lower back do react to Vancouver chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That’s what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Vancouver Disc Centers offers and is proficient in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height increases by 17%, and spinal area increases by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area diminishes. Spinal nerves are more prone to irritation. Vancouver Disc Centers’s Vancouver chiropractic care assists in lessening that irritation and the associated Vancouver back pain.

Vancouver Disc Centers provides spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Along with spinal manipulation, Vancouver Disc Centers endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It is all incorporated into your Vancouver treatment plan.
