Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation stops back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville understands that our St. Francisville chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation allays11 back pain by interfering with the pain messages created by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville offers St. Francisville spinal manipulation to hamper the painful irritation of the spinal discs.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine relies 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 in the middle of the spinal vertebral bones! That may diminish the essence of the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is vital to spinal movement and critical to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville treats the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it responds. How? T2 MRI images show decreased value signifying that there is a loss of water content in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That is the reason that it is so essential to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to St. Francisville chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do respond to St. Francisville chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height increases with traction. (4) That is what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville offers and is well-experienced in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height increases 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.
