In Sitka, chiropractic non-surgical spinal manipulation with Cox Technic Flexion Distraction at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka addresses the mechanical irritation of arthritis gently and safely. Distraction is even documented to reverse disc degeneration! (1) Furthermore, Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka understands the nutritional aspect of arthritis. Arthritis is an inflammatory change or traumatic change to a joint which reduces joint space and fluid loss. Pain results as spinal openings narrow, making the spinal nerves vulnerable to irritation. Reducing inflammation and rehydrating disc cartilage can definitely help.
The spine's cartilage discs act like shock absorbers between the vertebral bones in the spinal column. Akin to the cartilage found in your knees, they require the proper nutrients to stay healthy. Chondroitin sulfate is good food for the disc. Long-term use of chondroitin sulfate prevents progression of osteoarthritis especially in knee arthritis. (2)Disc nutrition
is well-researched. A well-documented source for chondroitin sulfate is perna canaliculus
