Chiropractic Manipulation Relieves the Hurting Spine

The spine is grateful for spinal manipulation! It certainly values what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you bring your Sitka spine to Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka, Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Sitka chiropractic treatment plan integrates alleviating, research-proven spinal manipulation.

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 irritation.

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 chiropractic care!

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.
