Manahawkin Chiropractic Healthy News from Manahawkin Chiropractic Center – 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 Manahawkin Chiropractic Center at all! The hands-on effect of mobilization is comforting; the motion elicited is healing. That is just what chiropractic offers – comfort and healing! Chiropractic care endeavors to initially calm and ease pain then integrate exercise for continued pain relief and healing via strengthening to avoid future back pain. Back pain relief is a team effort!  Taking advantage of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management offers the best of both worlds: gentle stretching treatment to painful segments that drops intradiscal pressures and at-home care like exercise, hot/cold therapy and nutrition to enhance the pain relief and recovery. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is excited to share the Manahawkin back pain relief via Cox Technic with our Manahawkin chiropractic patients!

TIP of the Month: Vitamin D for the Degenerated Disc

Nutritionally, Vitamin D is such a good vitamin! Vitamin D is reported to help bone and mood and overall health. In studying the disc of diabetic rats, researchers find a new positive: 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) How is your Vitamin D level? Let’s find out together, you and Manahawkin Chiropractic Center! If it’s low, your Manahawkin chiropractic treatment plan will include Vitamin D recommendations from your Manahawkin chiropractor!
