Chiropractic Manipulation Helps the Painful Spine

The spine is grateful for spinal manipulation! It undoubtedly values what spinal manipulation feels like and rewards its owner with relief of back pain and relaxation. When you bring your Largo spine to Hollstrom & Associates Inc, Hollstrom & Associates Inc treats it gently, safely and effectively. The Largo chiropractic treatment plan integrates relieving, research-proven spinal manipulation.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows that our Largo chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation reduces back pain by affecting the pain messages produced by irritated spinal nerves. In one particular study, spinal manipulation more effectively hampered pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers Largo spinal manipulation to hamper the painful irritation of the spinal discs.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine relies on its water content to be healthy and not easily bothered by pain, maintain its height and play its role in maintaining spinal mobility and being the shock-absorber between the spinal vertebral bones! That may simplify the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is key to spinal movement and important to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc takes care of the disc and the spine. When compression or exercise exertion strains the spine, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images show reduced value signifying that there is a loss of water content in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it is so important to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Largo chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do react to Largo chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height increases with traction. (4) That’s what occurs with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers 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 decreases. Spinal nerves are more prone to irritation. Hollstrom & Associates Inc’s Largo chiropractic care assists in diminishing that irritation and the associated Largo back pain.

Hollstrom & Associates Inc uses spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Along with spinal manipulation, Hollstrom & Associates Inc endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both linked to the sulfate radical which absorbs fluid. It is all incorporated into your Largo treatment plan.
