Chiropractic Manipulation Benefits the Painful 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 take your Watertown spine to Watertown Wellness Center, Watertown Wellness Center treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Watertown chiropractic treatment plan includes alleviating, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Watertown Wellness Center understands that our Watertown 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 interfering with the pain messages created by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively interfered with pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Watertown Wellness Center uses Watertown 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 bothered by pain, maintain its height and do its job of maintaining spinal mobility and being 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 central to spinal movement and critical to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Watertown Wellness Center takes care of the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it responds. How? T2 MRI images show decreased value signifying that there is a loss of water content 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 Watertown chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do respond to Watertown chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height enlarges with traction. (4) That is what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Watertown Wellness Center offers and is proficient 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 decreases. Spinal nerves are irritated more easily. Watertown Wellness Center’s Watertown chiropractic care assists in diminishing that irritation and the associated Watertown back pain.

Watertown Wellness Center offers spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Along with spinal manipulation, Watertown Wellness Center recommends nutritional supplementation with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It’s all incorporated into your Watertown treatment plan.
