Chiropractic Manipulation Benefits the Hurting Spine

The spine is grateful for spinal manipulation! It undoubtedly is thankful for what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with back pain relief and relaxation. When you take your Vancouver spine to Vancouver Spine Care Centre, Vancouver Spine Care Centre treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan includes alleviating, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation stops back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows that our Vancouver chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation eases back pain by interfering with the pain messages created by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre offers Vancouver spinal manipulation to discontinue the painful irritation of the spinal discs.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine relies on its water content to be healthy and not easily bothered by pain, keep its height and play its role in providing 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 central to spinal movement and key to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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 decreased value signifying that there is a loss of water content in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it’s so important to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Vancouver chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Discs in the lower back do respond to Vancouver chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That’s what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Vancouver Spine Care Centre offers and is proficient in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height enlarges 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. Vancouver Spine Care Centre’s Vancouver chiropractic care helps diminish that irritation and the associated Vancouver back pain.

Vancouver Spine Care Centre uses spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Vancouver Spine Care Centre recommends nutritional supplementation with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It is all incorporated into your Vancouver treatment plan.
