Chiropractic Manipulation Helps the Hurting Spine

The spine loves spinal manipulation! It certainly values what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you take your Pflugerville spine to Pflugerville Wellness Center, Pflugerville Wellness Center treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Pflugerville chiropractic treatment plan integrates relieving, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation hinders back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Pflugerville Wellness Center understands that our Pflugerville chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation allays11 back pain by affecting the pain messages created by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center uses Pflugerville spinal manipulation to stop the painful irritation of the spinal discs.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine depends on its water content to be healthy and not easily bothered by pain, keep its height and do its job of 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 key to spinal movement and critical to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Pflugerville Wellness Center treats the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it responds. How? T2 MRI images reveal decreased value meaning that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it’s so important to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Pflugerville chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do react to Pflugerville chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height enlarges with traction. (4) That’s what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Pflugerville Wellness Center 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 diminishes. Spinal nerves are more susceptible to irritation. Pflugerville Wellness Center’s Pflugerville chiropractic care assists in reducing that irritation and the associated Pflugerville back pain.

Pflugerville Wellness Center uses spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Along with spinal manipulation, Pflugerville Wellness Center recommends nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It is all incorporated into your Pflugerville treatment plan.
