Chiropractic Manipulation Benefits the Hurting Spine

May 02, 2017

The spine loves spinal manipulation! It certainly welcomes what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with back pain relief and relaxation. When you bring your Easley spine to Young Chiropractic, Young Chiropractic treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Easley chiropractic treatment plan incorporates relieving, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Young Chiropractic understands that our Easley chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation relieves back pain by affecting the pain messages formed by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) Young Chiropractic employs Easley 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 supporting spinal mobility and acting like 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 important to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Young Chiropractic treats the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion taxes the spine, it responds. How? T2 MRI images show reduced value meaning that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That is why it’s so essential to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Easley chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Discs in the lower back do react to Easley chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height enlarges with traction. (4) That is what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Young Chiropractic chooses to use and is well-experienced 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 aggravated more easily. Young Chiropractic’s Easley chiropractic care assists in lessening that irritation and the associated Easley back pain.

Young Chiropractic uses spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Young Chiropractic endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which imbibes fluid. It’s all incorporated into your Easley treatment plan.
