Breaking News! Spinal manipulation raises water content
in the disc and reduces pain intensity!
Johnson Chiropractic is inspired to share with our
Richmond back pain patients this news. We hear our patients go into detail
about their relief while being treated and after the treatment, so it’s great
to have research document and explain that relief! The Richmond chiropractic
care at Johnson Chiropractic is certainly beneficial.
Many patients coming to Johnson Chiropractic have disc degeneration,
a condition that finds the intervertebral disc lacking its original height and
fluid and nutrients. Disc degeneration or any number of other spine conditions
may cause our Richmond patients pain. Our chiropractic services are
pain relieving, gentle and effective for many Richmond back pain
sufferers. Explaining the reasons for this relief is important for all of us.
Now, the current research study about spinal manipulation
and water content of the disc recorded patient response to spinal manipulation. During and following the spinal manipulation, the
authors report an immediate increase in the water content of the disc in the low
back at the L1-2 and L2-3 and L4-5 levels of the lumbar spine! This is reassuring
evidence for the benefit of spinal manipulation in treating
back pain. Patients in this study also note relief of pain intensity while
undergoing spinal manipulation. (1) Our Richmond back patients
As a side note: Another study pointed out that drinking water 36 hours before a spinal
manipulation session is also beneficial. (2) The more water available, the
more it can get into the disc during spinal manipulation. This can only help!
Our spinal manipulation of choice for Richmond
clients is Cox Technic Flexion Distraction. Not only is it relieving, it’s
evidence-based and research-documented via federally funded research with the
National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Health Resources and Services
Administration with nearly 50 years of experience behind it. That’s important
to Johnson Chiropractic to have support behind what we do.
So, drink some water, and contact Johnson Chiropractic today to set up your next Richmond
chiropractic spinal manipulation appointment. Your discs will thank you!
