Chiropractic Healing via Decompression of Nerves 09/09/2014Chiropractic is healing. Chiropractic decompresses compressed nerves. Compressed nerves induce pain. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is chiropractic healing for so many in Fort Wayne. 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. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc welcomes such research. Now, it takes startingly little pressure to cause much pain. Your Fort Wayne 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 Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc wants to see our Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain patients as soon as possible after the pain starts.
