Chiropractic Manipulation Helps the Hurting Spine

The spine is grateful for 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 Toronto spine to Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Toronto chiropractic treatment plan incorporates relieving, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation stops back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre understands that our Toronto chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation allays11 back pain by interfering with the pain messages formed 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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre employs Toronto 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 providing 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 central to spinal movement and critical to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre treats the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it responds. How? T2 MRI images show reduced value meaning that there is a loss of water content 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 Toronto chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do react to Toronto chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That’s what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre offers and is well-experienced in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height enlarges by 17%, and spinal area increases by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area decreases. Spinal nerves are aggravated more easily. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre’s Toronto chiropractic care helps reduce that irritation and the associated Toronto back pain.

Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre uses spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre endorses nutritional supplementation with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It’s all part of your Toronto treatment plan.
