Chiropractic Manipulation Helps the Hurting Spine

The spine loves 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 Sandy Springs spine to Cross Chiropractic Center, Cross Chiropractic Center treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment plan integrates alleviating, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Cross Chiropractic Center knows that our Sandy Springs chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation possesses an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation relieves back pain by hampering the pain messages produced by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively slowed pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) Cross Chiropractic Center uses Sandy Springs spinal manipulation to hamper the painful irritation of the spinal discs.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine relies on its water content to be healthy and not easily bothered by pain, maintain its height and do its job of providing spinal mobility and being the shock-absorber in the middle of 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) Cross Chiropractic Center cares for the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion taxes 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’s the reason that it’s so essential to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Sandy Springs chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do react to Sandy Springs chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height enlarges with traction. (4) That’s what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Cross Chiropractic Center offers and is well-experienced in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height enlarges by 17%, and spinal area increases by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area diminishes. Spinal nerves are aggravated more easily. Cross Chiropractic Center’s Sandy Springs chiropractic care helps reduce that irritation and the associated Sandy Springs back pain.

Cross Chiropractic Center provides spinal manipulation to reduce back pain. Accompanied by spinal manipulation, Cross Chiropractic Center recommends nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which imbibes fluid. It’s all part of your Sandy Springs treatment plan.
