Chiropractic Manipulation Relieves the Hurting Spine

The spine appreciates spinal manipulation! It undoubtedly values what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with back pain relief and relaxation. When you take your Oxford spine to Satterwhite Chiropractic, Satterwhite Chiropractic treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Oxford chiropractic treatment plan includes alleviating, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Satterwhite Chiropractic knows that our Oxford chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation eases back pain by affecting the pain messages created by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic uses Oxford spinal manipulation to hamper the spinal disc irritation.

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 play its role in supporting spinal mobility and acting like the shock-absorber between the spinal vertebral bones! That may simplify 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) Satterwhite Chiropractic treats the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion strains the spine, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images reveal reduced value signifying that there is a loss of water content in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it is so vital to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Oxford chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Discs in the lower back do react to Oxford chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That’s what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Satterwhite Chiropractic offers and is well-experienced in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height increases by 17%, and spinal area opens by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area diminishes. Spinal nerves are aggravated more easily. Satterwhite Chiropractic’s Oxford chiropractic care helps lessen that irritation and the associated Oxford back pain.

Satterwhite Chiropractic provides spinal manipulation to reduce back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Satterwhite Chiropractic endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It’s all part of your Oxford treatment plan.
