Chiropractic Manipulation Benefits the Painful Spine

The spine is grateful for spinal manipulation! It undoubtedly appreciates what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you take your Minster spine to Minster Chiropractic Center, Minster Chiropractic Center treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Minster chiropractic treatment plan combines relieving, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation hinders back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Minster Chiropractic Center understands that our Minster chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation eases back pain by affecting the pain messages produced by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively slowed pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) Minster Chiropractic Center uses Minster 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 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 vital to spinal movement and important to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Minster Chiropractic Center takes care of 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 meaning 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 Minster chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do respond to Minster chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That is what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Minster Chiropractic Center 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 decreases. Spinal nerves are irritated more easily. Minster Chiropractic Center’s Minster chiropractic care assists in lessening that irritation and the associated Minster back pain.

Minster Chiropractic Center provides spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Minster Chiropractic Center recommends nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It is all part of your Minster treatment plan.
