Chiropractic Manipulation Relieves the Painful Spine

The spine is grateful for spinal manipulation! It undoubtedly is thankful for what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with back pain relief and relaxation. When you bring your Ashburn spine to Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Ashburn chiropractic treatment plan incorporates alleviating, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation hinders back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn understands that our Ashburn chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation possesses an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation reduces back pain by affecting the pain messages formed 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn uses Ashburn spinal manipulation to hamper the painful irritation of the spinal discs.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine depends on its water content to be healthy and not easily irritated, maintain its height and do its job of providing spinal mobility and being 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 key to spinal movement and critical to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn treats the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion taxes the spine, 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 is the reason that it’s so important to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Ashburn chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do respond to Ashburn chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That’s what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn chooses to use and is proficient 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 more susceptible to irritation. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn’s Ashburn chiropractic care assists in lessening that irritation and the associated Ashburn back pain.

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn uses spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn endorses nutritional supplementation with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It’s all part of your Ashburn treatment plan.
