Chiropractic Manipulation Helps the Painful Spine

The spine appreciates spinal manipulation! It undoubtedly values what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you take your Plainville spine to Layden Chiropractic, Layden Chiropractic treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Plainville 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. Layden Chiropractic knows that our Plainville chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation eases back pain by affecting the pain messages formed by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Layden Chiropractic offers Plainville spinal manipulation to hamper 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, keep its height and do its job of maintaining 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 essential to spinal movement and key to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Layden Chiropractic cares for the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion challenges the spine, it responds. How? T2 MRI images reveal reduced value meaning that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That is the reason that it is so important to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Plainville chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Discs in the lower back do react to Plainville chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height enlarges with traction. (4) That is what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Layden 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 diminishes. Spinal nerves are more prone to irritation. Layden Chiropractic’s Plainville chiropractic care helps reduce that irritation and the associated Plainville back pain.

Layden Chiropractic provides spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Layden Chiropractic recommends nutritional supplementation with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It is all incorporated into your Plainville treatment plan.
