Carrolltown Chiropractic Healthy News from Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation – July 2017

 

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 Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation at all! The hands-on effect of mobilization is comforting; the motion elicited is healing. That is just what chiropractic presents – comfort and healing! Chiropractic care endeavors to initially calm and reduce pain then incorporate exercise for continued pain relief and healing via strengthening to avoid future back pain. Back pain relief is a team effort!  Taking advantage of 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 boost the pain relief and recovery. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is excited to share the Carrolltown back pain relief via Cox Technic with our Carrolltown chiropractic patients!

TIP of the Month: Vitamin D for the Degenerated Disc

Nutritionally, Vitamin D is such a good vitamin! Vitamin D is shown to support bone and mood and overall health. In studying the disc of diabetic rats, researchers find a new benefit: Vitamin D may well prevent and treat degenerative changes in the degenerated disc by bettering the disc’s content of transforming growth factor-β and insulin-like growth factor-1. (2) How is your Vitamin D level? Let us find out together, you and Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation! If it’s low, your Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan will incorporate Vitamin D recommendations from your Carrolltown chiropractor!
