Chiropractic Manipulation Benefits the Hurting Spine

The spine loves spinal manipulation! It undoubtedly welcomes what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with back pain relief and relaxation. When you bring your Lynchburg spine to Palmer Chiropractic Center, Palmer Chiropractic Center treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Lynchburg 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. Palmer Chiropractic Center knows that our Lynchburg chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation possesses an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation relieves back pain by hampering the pain messages produced by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively interfered with pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Palmer Chiropractic Center employs Lynchburg spinal manipulation to stop 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 irritated, maintain its height and play its role in maintaining spinal mobility and being the shock-absorber in the middle of the spinal vertebral bones! That may diminish the essence of the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is vital to spinal movement and important to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center treats the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion challenges the spine, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images reveal reduced value signifying that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it’s so essential to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Lynchburg chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do respond to Lynchburg chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height enlarges with traction. (4) That is what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Palmer Chiropractic Center offers and is proficient in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height enlarges by 17%, and spinal area opens by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area decreases. Spinal nerves are more susceptible to irritation. Palmer Chiropractic Center’s Lynchburg chiropractic care helps lessen that irritation and the associated Lynchburg back pain.

Palmer Chiropractic Center offers spinal manipulation to reduce back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Palmer Chiropractic Center recommends nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It is all part of your Lynchburg treatment plan.
