Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC knows that our Fort Wayne chiropractic back pain patients want to stop the hurt. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation allays11 back pain by affecting the pain messages created by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively interfered with pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC offers Fort Wayne spinal manipulation to stop the spinal disc irritation.Improving Water Content The intervertebral disc of the spine depends on its water content to be healthy and not easily bothered by pain, keep its height and play its role in providing spinal mobility and being the shock-absorber between 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 important to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC treats the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it responds. How? T2 MRI images show reduced value meaning that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it’s so essential to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Fort Wayne chiropractic care!Disc Height Increases Discs in the lower back do react to Fort Wayne chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That is what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC chooses to use and is proficient in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height enlarges by 17%, and spinal area opens by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area decreases. Spinal nerves are aggravated more easily.
