Stops Painful Messages
Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s
messages to the body that it hurts. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka understands that
our Sitka chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation possesses an
anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation eases
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) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka employs Sitka
spinal manipulation to discontinue the spinal disc
Improving Water Content
The intervertebral disc of the spine depends on
its water content to be healthy and not easily bothered by pain,
keep its height and do its job of maintaining
spinal mobility and being the shock-absorber between the spinal vertebral bones! That may simplify the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is essential
to spinal movement and important to back pain relief. It’s
the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka cares for the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression
or even during exercise, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images show reduced
value signifying that there is a loss of water
content in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s
the reason that it’s so vital
to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Sitka
Disc Height Increases
Discs in the lower back do react
to Sitka chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height increases
with traction. (4) That is what happens with Cox
Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka chooses to use
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 more prone
to irritation. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka’s Sitka chiropractic care assists in lessening
that irritation and the associated Sitka back pain.
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka provides spinal
manipulation to reduce back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka recommends nutritional
supplementation with glycosaminoglycan elements
glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical
which draws in fluid. It’s all incorporated
into your Sitka treatment plan.
