Chiropractic Manipulation Helps the Hurting Spine

The spine is grateful for spinal manipulation! It certainly is thankful for what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you take your Carrolltown spine to Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan combines relieving, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation stops back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation understands that our Carrolltown chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation possesses an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation relieves back pain by hampering the pain messages formed 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation employs Carrolltown spinal manipulation to stop the spinal disc irritation.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine depends on its water content to be healthy and not easily bothered by pain, maintain its height and do its job of supporting spinal mobility and acting like the shock-absorber between the spinal vertebral bones! That may diminish the essence of the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is vital to spinal movement and key to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation cares for the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images reveal decreased value meaning that there is a loss of water content in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it is so important to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Carrolltown chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do respond to Carrolltown chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That’s what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 prone to irritation. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation’s Carrolltown chiropractic care helps reduce that irritation and the associated Carrolltown back pain.

Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation uses spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It is all incorporated into your Carrolltown treatment plan.
