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 San Jose spine to McMurray Chiropractic Solutions, McMurray Chiropractic Solutions treats it gently, safely and effectively. The San Jose chiropractic treatment plan incorporates alleviating, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions knows that our San Jose chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation eases back pain by affecting the pain messages formed by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively slowed pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions employs San Jose spinal manipulation to hamper the spinal disc irritation.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine depends on its water content to be healthy and not easily irritated, keep its height and do its job of supporting spinal mobility and being the shock-absorber between the spinal vertebral bones! That may simplify 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) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions cares for the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it responds. How? T2 MRI images reveal reduced value meaning that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it is so important to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to San Jose chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Discs in the lower back do respond to San Jose chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That is what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation McMurray Chiropractic Solutions chooses to use 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 diminishes. Spinal nerves are more susceptible to irritation. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions’s San Jose chiropractic care assists in reducing that irritation and the associated San Jose back pain.

McMurray Chiropractic Solutions provides spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Accompanied by spinal manipulation, Chiropractic Solutions endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It is all incorporated into your San Jose treatment plan.
