Chiropractic Manipulation Benefits the Hurting Spine

The spine is grateful for spinal manipulation! It certainly welcomes what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you bring your West Palm Beach spine to Moses Chiropractic, Moses Chiropractic treats it gently, safely and effectively. The West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan integrates relieving, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation stops back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Moses Chiropractic understands that our West Palm Beach chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation eases back pain by interfering with the pain messages formed by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) Moses Chiropractic uses West Palm Beach spinal manipulation to discontinue the spinal disc irritation.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine depends on its water content to be healthy and not easily irritated, maintain its height and play its role in supporting spinal mobility and acting like 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 essential to spinal movement and important to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Moses Chiropractic takes care of the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion taxes the spine, it responds. How? T2 MRI images reveal reduced value meaning that there is a loss of water content 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 West Palm Beach chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do react to West Palm Beach chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That’s what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Moses Chiropractic offers and is proficient in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height enlarges by 17%, and spinal area opens by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area decreases. Spinal nerves are more susceptible to irritation. Moses Chiropractic’s West Palm Beach chiropractic care helps diminish that irritation and the associated West Palm Beach back pain.

Moses Chiropractic provides spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Moses Chiropractic endorses nutritional supplementation with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It is all part of your West Palm Beach treatment plan.
