Regenerate. Stand up straight. Better gait.

How do these all relate? Chiropractic-ly!

Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka aims to help maintain or attain a healthy spine with healthy discs with Sitka chiropractic care.Your Sitka chiropractor creates the tale of a healthy spine by on top of the latest research on disc regeneration and by supporting Sitka patients to stand up straight which leads to a better gait! Now you may ask “why?”

Well, for starters, a healthy disc lets the spine to curve in the right places and you to stand up straight and move better. So, the hunt for a means to create or protect a healthy disc is on! Some surgeons are using disc replacements of all sorts. Some researchers are trying gels and injections and nutrients. All of us – your Sitka chiropractor at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka included - are waiting for THE answer. But alas, like most of life’s questions, one single answer may not fit everyone, especially when it comes to back pain relief. So let’s review a few things we know that are good for promoting a healthy disc:


          • Stand up straight! If you stand with your head forward and round your shoulders, you inadvertently boost your prospect of falling. Why? Because this posture fault influences muscle control and balance and causes your gait to be unnatural! (1) Don’t do that! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka wants to see you walk tall and well-aligned!
          • Supplement to regenerate! A healthy disc diminishes pain and allows improved gait and ambulation. A chemical inside the disc called glycosaminoglycan has the ability to produce disc material. Research is working towards proving it can be accomplished. Those of us like your  Sitka chiropractor who practice Cox Technic spine manipulation use a precursor of glycosaminoglycan to slow degeneration of the human disc and futuristically try to regenerate it. (2) So think about a supplement to regenerate!
          • Get a Sitka chiropractic treatment! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka offers Cox Technic distraction spinal manipulation. Disc distraction is reported to reverse disc degeneration and result in disc rehydration, disc nutrition via the endplates, and increased number of cells. (3) Good deal!


Your healthy spine is the goal at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka where Sitka chiropractic care incorporates work by us all: your standing up straight, supplementing to regenerate, and getting regular chiropractic adjustments!
