Chiropractic Manipulation Relieves the Painful Spine

May 02, 2017

The spine loves spinal manipulation! It undoubtedly welcomes what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you take your Augusta spine to Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic, Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Augusta 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. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic knows that our Augusta 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 hampering the pain messages produced by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively slowed pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic uses Augusta 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 supporting spinal mobility and being the shock-absorber in the middle of the spinal vertebral bones! That may simplify the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is central to spinal movement and critical to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic cares for the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion taxes the spine, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images show decreased value meaning that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That is why it is so important to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Augusta chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do respond to Augusta chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height enlarges with traction. (4) That is what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic chooses to use and is well-experienced in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height increases by 17%, and spinal area opens by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area decreases. Spinal nerves are aggravated more easily. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic’s Augusta chiropractic care assists in diminishing that irritation and the associated Augusta back pain.

Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic offers spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Along with spinal manipulation, Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It is all part of your Augusta treatment plan.
