Plymouth Chiropractic Healthy News from Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology – 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 Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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 aims to first calm and ease pain then add in exercise for continued pain relief and healing via strengthening to curb 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 enhance the pain relief and recovery. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is equipped to share the Plymouth back pain relief via Cox Technic with our Plymouth chiropractic patients!

TIP of the Month: Vitamin D for the Degenerated Disc

Nutritionally, Vitamin D is such a good vitamin! Vitamin D reportedly helps 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) What is your Vitamin D level? Let’s find out together, you and Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology! If it is low, your Plymouth chiropractic treatment plan will include Vitamin D suggestions from your Plymouth chiropractor!
