Regenerate. Stand up straight. Better gait.
How do these all relate? Chiropractic-ly!
Your McHenry chiropractor tells the story of a healthy spine by keeping alert to the latest research on disc regeneration and by encouraging McHenry patients to stand up straight which leads to a better gait! Now you may ask “why?”
Well, first of all, a healthy disc allows the spine to curve in the right places and you to stand up straight and move better. So, the hunt for a means to create or protect a healthy disc is on! Some surgeons are using disc replacements of all sorts. Some researchers are trying gels and injections and nutrients. All of us – your McHenry chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic included - are waiting for THE answer. But alas, like most of life’s questions, one single answer may not fit everyone, especially when it comes to back pain relief. So let’s review a few things we know that are good for promoting a healthy disc:
- Stand up straight! If you stand with your head forward and round your shoulders, you actually increase your danger of falling. Why? Because this posture fault affects muscle control and balance and causes your gait to be irregular! (1) Don’t do that! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic wants to see you walk tall and well-aligned!
- Supplement to regenerate! A healthy disc lowers pain and allows improved gait and ambulation. A chemical inside the disc called glycosaminoglycan has the ability to produce disc material. Research is seeking to prove it can be done. Those of us like your McHenry chiropractor who practice Cox Technic spine manipulation use a precursor of glycosaminoglycan to slow degeneration of the human disc and futuristically try to regenerate it. (2) So consider a supplement to regenerate!
- Get a McHenry chiropractic treatment! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic offers Cox Technic distraction spinal manipulation. Disc distraction is reported to reverse disc degeneration and result in disc rehydration, disc nutrition via the endplates, and increased number of cells. (3) Good deal!
Your healthy spine is the goal at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic where McHenry chiropractic care incorporates work by us all: your standing up straight, supplementing to regenerate, and getting regular chiropractic adjustments!
