Chiropractic Manipulation Helps the Painful Spine

The spine is grateful for spinal manipulation! It certainly appreciates what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you bring your Eugene spine to Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic, Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Eugene 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. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic understands that our Eugene chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation possesses an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation relieves back pain by hampering the pain messages produced by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic employs Eugene 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 play its role in supporting spinal mobility and acting like the shock-absorber between the spinal vertebral bones! That may diminish the essence of the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is essential to spinal movement and important to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic takes care of the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion strains the spine, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images reveal reduced value signifying that there is a loss of water content in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That is the reason that it’s so vital to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Eugene chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Discs in the lower back do respond to Eugene chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height enlarges with traction. (4) That’s what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 more susceptible to irritation. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic’s Eugene chiropractic care assists in reducing that irritation and the associated Eugene back pain.

Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic provides spinal manipulation to reduce back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It is all incorporated into your Eugene treatment plan.
