Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation stops back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa understands that our West Des Moines 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 interfering with the pain messages formed by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively slowed pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa uses West Des Moines spinal manipulation to stop 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, keep its height and do its job of supporting spinal mobility and acting like the shock-absorber in the middle of the spinal vertebral bones! That may diminish the essence of the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is central to spinal movement and key to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa takes care of the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion strains the spine, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images show decreased value meaning that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it’s so vital to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to West Des Moines chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do react to West Des Moines chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That’s what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Executive Chiropractic of Iowa chooses to use and is well-experienced in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height increases by 17%, and spinal area increases by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area diminishes. Spinal nerves are aggravated more easily. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa’s West Des Moines chiropractic care helps diminish that irritation and the associated West Des Moines back pain.

Executive Chiropractic of Iowa offers spinal manipulation to reduce back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Executive Chiropractic of Iowa 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 West Des Moines treatment plan.
