Darn your disc!
Not darn your disc in a shaming kind of way way, but in a mending and fixing and repairing way!
Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is all about mending the spinal disc. For those Augusta back pain and neck pain sufferers, the disc is a pain. If you have back pain, you surely agree. The intervertebral disc is the cartilage material between the vertebral bones of your spine. The disc is the shock absorber, the buffer to keep bones from rubbing on each other. The healthy disc keeps us tall. The unhealthy, degenerated disc shrinks us. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic offers a Augusta non-surgical treatment plan which includes nutritional supplementation to reduce back pain due to unhealthy discs.
at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is a hands-on care of the spine
. We use chiropractic Cox Technic
to reduce spinal pressures
and widen the space in the spinal canal
to reduce pain. While adjusting the spine, chiropractic may also improve circulation of the triple joint complex:
the disc and the two vertebral bones around it. While this is happening, Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic wants to maximize the benefit of improved circulation to get nutrients into the disc that it needs to be healthy. One of those nutrients is glycosaminoglycan. Let’s discuss this.
Glycosaminoglycan is a component of aggrecan, a major component of the disc’s make-up. Loss of aggrecan impairs the disc function and leads to disc degeneration. Granted disc degeneration due to aggregan loss is a long process, for some as long as decades. But Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic grabs onto the possibility that the degenerative process may be stopped or slowed at least by restoring the aggrecan, via feeding the disc with nutrients that it needs via supplementation. (1) Further, researchers report that glucosamine lessens the decrease of aggrecan and even prevents the death of nucleus pulposus (the center part of the disc) cells. (2)
So the poor disc has a big job. It holds the bones apart despite being compressed by the two bones. That’s its job. It has to withstand a large compressive load all day long. So don’t “darn” your disc when it hurts. Feed it. Rest it. Darn it with supplementation. Get it the Augusta chiropractic care it needs. Contact Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic today.
