Chiropractic Manipulation Benefits the Painful Spine

The spine loves spinal manipulation! It certainly is thankful for what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with back pain relief and relaxation. When you take your Brooks spine to Soft Health and Healing Clinic, Soft Health and Healing Clinic treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Brooks chiropractic treatment plan incorporates alleviating, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows that our Brooks chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation possesses an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation eases back pain by affecting the pain messages produced by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively interfered with pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic employs Brooks spinal manipulation to stop 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 supporting spinal mobility and being the shock-absorber in the middle of the spinal vertebral bones! That may simplify the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is vital to spinal movement and important to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic takes care of the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images reveal decreased value signifying that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That is the reason that it’s so essential to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Brooks chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do respond to Brooks chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height increases with traction. (4) That is what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Soft Health and Healing Clinic offers and is proficient in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height increases by 17%, and spinal area increases by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area decreases. Spinal nerves are irritated more easily. Soft Health and Healing Clinic’s Brooks chiropractic care helps reduce that irritation and the associated Brooks back pain.

Soft Health and Healing Clinic provides spinal manipulation to reduce back pain. Along with spinal manipulation, Soft Health and Healing Clinic endorses nutritional supplementation with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It’s all incorporated into your Brooks treatment plan.
