Chiropractic Manipulation Benefits the Painful Spine

The spine appreciates spinal manipulation! It certainly is thankful for what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you take your Groton spine to Hutter Chiropractic Office, Hutter Chiropractic Office treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Groton chiropractic treatment plan combines relieving, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Hutter Chiropractic Office knows that our Groton 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 formed by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) Hutter Chiropractic Office uses Groton 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 irritated, keep its height and do its job of maintaining spinal mobility and acting like the shock-absorber between 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) Hutter Chiropractic Office treats the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it responds. How? T2 MRI images reveal reduced value meaning that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That is why it’s so vital to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Groton chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do react to Groton chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height increases with traction. (4) That’s what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Hutter Chiropractic Office offers 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 decreases. Spinal nerves are aggravated more easily. Hutter Chiropractic Office’s Groton chiropractic care helps reduce that irritation and the associated Groton back pain.

Hutter Chiropractic Office offers spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Along with spinal manipulation, Hutter Chiropractic Office endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It’s all part of your Groton treatment plan.
