Baton Rouge Chiropractic Healthy News from Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers July 2017


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 Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers at all! The hands-on effect of mobilization is comforting; the motion elicited is healing. That’s just what chiropractic presents – comfort and healing! Chiropractic care endeavors to first calm and ease pain then incorporate 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. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is trained and ready to share the Baton Rouge back pain relief via Cox Technic with our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients!

TIP of the Month: Vitamin D for the Degenerated Disc

Nutritionally, Vitamin D is such a good vitamin! Vitamin D is shown to support bone and mood and overall health. In researching the disc of diabetic rats, researchers find a new benefit: Vitamin D may well prevent and treat degenerative changes in the degenerated disc by bettering 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 Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers! If it’s low, your Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan will incorporate Vitamin D recommendations from your Baton Rouge chiropractor!
