When you bring your Colorado Springs spine to The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR treats it gently, safely and effectively.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows that our Colorado Springs chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation has an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation allays11 back pain by hampering the pain messages produced by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively interfered with pain messages than did tactile sensation (no effect) or mechanical stimulus (no significant effect). (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR uses Colorado Springs spinal manipulation to discontinue 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 providing 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 vital to spinal movement and key to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR takes care of the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it reacts. How? T2 MRI images reveal decreased value signifying that there is a loss of water content in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it’s so essential to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Colorado Springs chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do react to Colorado Springs chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height improves with traction. (4) That is what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers and is proficient in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height enlarges by 17%, and spinal area increases by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area diminishes. Spinal nerves are irritated more easily. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR’s Colorado Springs chiropractic care helps diminish that irritation and the associated Colorado Springs back pain.

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR uses spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Along with spinal manipulation, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which imbibes fluid. It is all part of your Colorado Springs treatment plan.
