Spine Treatment Preferred
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 Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic at all! The hands-on effect of mobilization is comforting; the motion elicited is healing. That is just what chiropractic offers – comfort and healing! Chiropractic care sets out to initially calm and reduce pain then incorporate exercise for continued pain relief and healing via strengthening to curb 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. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is trained and ready to share the Augusta back pain relief via Cox Technic with our Augusta chiropractic patients!
TIP of the Month: Vitamin D for the Degenerated Disc
Nutritionally, Vitamin D is such a good vitamin! Vitamin D reportedly helps bone and mood and overall health. In studying the disc of diabetic rats, researchers find a new positive: Vitamin D may well prevent and treat degenerative changes in the degenerated disc by improving the disc’s content of transforming growth factor-β and insulin-like growth factor-1.
