Spine Treatment Favored
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 Moriarty Chiropractic at all! The hands-on effect of mobilization is comforting; the motion elicited is healing. That’s just what chiropractic offers – comfort and healing! Chiropractic care strives to first calm and ease pain then incorporate exercise for continued pain relief and healing via strengthening to avoid future back pain. Back pain relief is a team effort! Using 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. Moriarty Chiropractic is excited to share the Nashua back pain relief via Cox Technic with our Nashua 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 researching the disc of diabetic rats, researchers find a new positive: Vitamin D may well prevent and treat degenerative changes in the degenerated disc by enriching 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 Moriarty Chiropractic! If it’s low, your Nashua chiropractic treatment plan will include Vitamin D recommendations from your Nashua chiropractor!
