Brooks Chiropractic Healthy News from Soft Health and Healing Clinic – July 2017

 

Spine Treatment Favored

Manual therapy spinal mobilization is preferred over physiotherapy by chronic back pain patients with disc degeneration for back pain intensity reduction and disability. (1) Not surprising to Soft Health and Healing Clinic at all! The hands-on effect of mobilization is comforting; the motion elicited is healing. That’s just what chiropractic presents – comfort and healing! Chiropractic care aims to initially calm and ease pain then add in exercise for continued pain relief and healing via strengthening to curb future back pain. Back pain relief is a team effort!  Taking advantage of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management offers the best of both worlds: gentle stretching treatment to painful segments that drops intradiscal pressures and at-home care like exercise, hot/cold therapy and nutrition to boost the pain relief and recovery. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is equipped to share the Brooks back pain relief via Cox Technic with our Brooks chiropractic patients!

TIP of the Month: Vitamin D for the Degenerated Disc

Nutritionally, Vitamin D is such a good vitamin! Vitamin D is reported to help bone and mood and overall health. In researching the disc of diabetic rats, researchers find a new benefit: Vitamin D may well prevent and treat degenerative changes in the degenerated disc by improving the disc’s content of transforming growth factor-β and insulin-like growth factor-1. (2) How is your Vitamin D level? Let us find out together, you and Soft Health and Healing Clinic! If it’s low, your Brooks chiropractic treatment plan will incorporate Vitamin D suggestions from your Brooks chiropractor!
