Chiropractic Manipulation Relieves the Hurting Spine

The spine is grateful for spinal manipulation! It undoubtedly appreciates what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you take your Baton Rouge spine to Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan incorporates relieving, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation understands that our Baton Rouge chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation possesses an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation reduces back pain by hampering the pain messages created by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation uses Baton Rouge spinal manipulation to stop the spinal disc irritation.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine relies on its water content to be healthy and not easily bothered by pain, keep its height and do its job of maintaining spinal mobility and acting like 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 essential to spinal movement and critical to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation treats the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images show decreased value signifying that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it’s so essential to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Baton Rouge chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do react to Baton Rouge chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That is what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation chooses to use and is well-experienced in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height increases by 17%, and spinal area opens by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area diminishes. Spinal nerves are more susceptible to irritation. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation’s Baton Rouge chiropractic care assists in diminishing that irritation and the associated Baton Rouge back pain.

Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation uses spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation recommends nutritional supplementation with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It is all part of your Baton Rouge treatment plan.
