The spine appreciates spinal
manipulation! It undoubtedly is
thankful for what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with back pain relief and relaxation. When you take your McHenry
spine to OrthoIllinois Chiropractic, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic treats it gently, safely and
effectively. The McHenry chiropractic treatment plan includes
relieving, research-proven spinal manipulation.
Stops Painful Messages
Spinal manipulation stops back pain’s
messages to the body that it hurts. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic understands that
our McHenry chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation has an
anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation relieves
back pain by interfering with the pain messages created
by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal
manipulation more effectively slowed pain
messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no
significant effect). (1) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic uses McHenry
spinal manipulation to hamper the painful irritation of the spinal discs.
Improving Water Content
The intervertebral disc of the spine depends on
its water content to be healthy and not easily bothered by pain,
keep its height and do its job of supporting
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 vital
to spinal movement and critical to back pain relief. It’s
the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic treats the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion strains
the spine, it responds. How? T2 MRI images reveal decreased
value signifying that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s
why it is so important
to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to McHenry
Disc Height Increases
Lumbar spinal discs do react
to McHenry chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height enlarges
with traction. (4) That is what occurs with Cox
Technic, the form of spinal manipulation OrthoIllinois Chiropractic chooses to use
and is well-experienced 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 prone
to irritation. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic’s McHenry chiropractic care helps
that irritation and the associated McHenry back pain.
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic uses spinal
manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic endorses nutritional
advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements
glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical
which draws in fluid. It is all part of your McHenry treatment plan.
