Richmond Chiropractic Healthy News from Johnson Chiropractic – July 2017

 

Spine Treatment Preferred

Manual therapy spinal mobilization is preferred over physiotherapy by chronic back pain patients with disc degeneration for back pain intensity reduction and disability. (1) Not surprising to Johnson Chiropractic at all! The hands-on effect of mobilization is comforting; the motion elicited is healing. That is just what chiropractic presents – comfort and healing! Chiropractic care endeavors to first calm and lessen pain then add in exercise for continued pain relief and healing via strengthening to avoid future back pain. Back pain relief is a team effort!  Utilizing the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management offers the best of both worlds: gentle stretching treatment to painful segments that reduces intradiscal pressures and at-home care like exercise, hot/cold therapy and nutrition to boost the pain relief and recovery. Johnson Chiropractic is equipped to share the Richmond back pain relief via Cox Technic with our Richmond chiropractic patients!

TIP of the Month: Vitamin D for the Degenerated Disc

Nutritionally, Vitamin D is such a good vitamin! Vitamin D is shown to support bone and mood and overall health. In studying the disc of diabetic rats, researchers find a new benefit: Vitamin D may well prevent and treat degenerative changes in the degenerated disc by improving the disc’s content of transforming growth factor-β and insulin-like growth factor-1. (2) What is your Vitamin D level? Let’s find out together, you and Johnson Chiropractic! If it is low, your Richmond chiropractic treatment plan will include Vitamin D suggestions from your Richmond chiropractor!
