Ashburn Chiropractic Healthy News from Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn – July 2017

 

Spine Treatment Preferred

Manual therapy spinal mobilization is preferred over physiotherapy by chronic back pain patients with disc degeneration for back pain intensity reduction and disability. (1) Not surprising to Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn at all! The hands-on effect of mobilization is comforting; the motion elicited is healing. That is just what chiropractic presents – comfort and healing! Chiropractic care strives to first calm and reduce pain then integrate exercise for continued pain relief and healing via strengthening to avoid future back pain. Back pain relief is a team effort!  Utilizing the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management offers the best of both worlds: gentle stretching treatment to painful segments that drops intradiscal pressures and at-home care like exercise, hot/cold therapy and nutrition to boost the pain relief and recovery. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is trained and ready to share the Ashburn back pain relief via Cox Technic with our Ashburn chiropractic patients!

TIP of the Month: Vitamin D for the Degenerated Disc

Nutritionally, Vitamin D is such a good vitamin! Vitamin D is shown to support bone and mood and overall health. In studying the disc of diabetic rats, researchers find a new positive: Vitamin D may well prevent and treat degenerative changes in the degenerated disc by bettering the disc’s content of transforming growth factor-β and insulin-like growth factor-1. (2) What is your Vitamin D level? Let us find out together, you and Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn! If it is low, your Ashburn chiropractic treatment plan will include Vitamin D recommendations from your Ashburn chiropractor!
