Chiropractic Healing via Decompression of Nerves

Chiropractic is healing. Chiropractic decompresses compressed nerves. Compressed nerves create pain. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is chiropractic healing for so many in San Jose. New research is exhibiting just how a tiny amount of compression can cause tremendous damage. That’s where chiropractic comes into play. The basis of chiropractic itself is that neural compression causes human disease. It’s pleasent and promising to see research documenting this assertion now. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions welcomes such research.

Now, it takes startingly little pressure to cause much pain. Your San Jose chiropractor knows this. We hear so often “Doc, I didn’t do anything! This pain is excruciating!” We know! This new paper shares that cell death and death of neurons in the dorsal root ganglion. Pressures as low as .3 MPA (43.5 psi) for just 10 minutes may be harmful to your spinal nerve cells. (1)

Another article shows a similar result. After just 10 minutes of 1-N compression (145 psi), the tibialis anterior muscle (located in the front of the leg) is affected adversely. Its nerve amplitude decreased to 69% of baseline. Researchers allowed the nerve a rest period and measured it again. The nerve amplitude returned to 98%. After 10 minutes of 2-N compression (290 psi) the tibialis anterior muscle decreased to 27% and after the recovery period, returned to just 30% of baseline. (2) Wow! That’s why McMurray Chiropractic Solutions wants to see our San Jose back pain and neck pain patients as soon as possible after the pain starts. Pressure on the nerves starts its deadly attack quickly.

Science and research continue to document the effectiveness of chiropractic care. Its gentle spinal manipulation technique, Cox Technic, safely and effectively reduces pressure on the nerves. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions chooses Cox Technic for its evidence-based protocols (especially the 50% Rule) and well-documented outcomes.  It’s been shown to drop pressures in the lower back to as low as -192mm Hg pressure and in the cervical spine by 502mm Hg. (3,4,5,6)

So don’t let compression of your nerves and its resulting pain go too long. Trust your San Jose chiropractor to decompress painful nerves. Contact McMurray Chiropractic Solutions today.
