Vancouver Chiropractic Healthy News from Vancouver Spine Care Centre July 2017

 

Spine Treatment Favored

Manual therapy spinal mobilization is preferred over physiotherapy by chronic back pain patients with disc degeneration for back pain intensity reduction and disability. (1) Not surprising to Vancouver Spine Care Centre at all! The hands-on effect of mobilization is comforting; the motion elicited is healing. That’s just what chiropractic presents – comfort and healing! Chiropractic care aims to initially calm and reduce pain then integrate exercise for continued pain relief and healing via strengthening to avoid future back pain. Back pain relief is a team effort!  Using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management offers the best of both worlds: gentle stretching treatment to painful segments that reduces intradiscal pressures and at-home care like exercise, hot/cold therapy and nutrition to enhance the pain relief and recovery. Vancouver Spine Care Centre is excited to share the Vancouver back pain relief via Cox Technic with our Vancouver chiropractic patients!

TIP of the Month: Vitamin D for the Degenerated Disc

Nutritionally, Vitamin D is such a good vitamin! Vitamin D is shown to support bone and mood and overall health. In researching the disc of diabetic rats, researchers find a new positive: Vitamin D may well prevent and treat degenerative changes in the degenerated disc by enriching the disc’s content of transforming growth factor-β and insulin-like growth factor-1. (2) How is your Vitamin D level? Let’s find out together, you and Vancouver Spine Care Centre! If it is low, your Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan will incorporate Vitamin D suggestions from your Vancouver chiropractor!
