When you bring your Baton Rouge spine to Spine & Sports Rehab Center, Spine & Sports Rehab Center treats it gently, safely and effectively.

Stops Painful Messages 

Spinal manipulation halts back pain’s messages to the body that it hurts. Spine & Sports Rehab Center understands that our Baton Rouge chiropractic back pain patients don’t want to hurt anymore. Spinal manipulation possesses an anti-nociceptive - anti-pain - effect on back pain. Spinal manipulation allays11 back pain by interfering with the pain messages created by irritated spinal nerves. In one specific study, spinal manipulation more effectively slowed pain messages than did mechanical stimulus (no significant effect) or tactile sensation (no effect). (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center employs Baton Rouge spinal manipulation to stop the painful irritation of the spinal discs.

Improving Water Content 

The intervertebral disc of the spine relies on its water content to be healthy and not easily irritated, maintain its height and play its role in providing spinal mobility and acting like the shock-absorber between the spinal vertebral bones! That may diminish the essence of the disc’s role a bit, but the spinal disc is essential to spinal movement and key to back pain relief. It’s the most pain-sensitive structure in the spine! (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center treats the disc and the spine. When the spine is loaded by compression or even during exercise, it responds. How? T2 MRI images reveal reduced value signifying that water content is low in the facet joints and the nucleus pulposus. (3) That’s why it’s so vital to stay hydrated, drink water, and treat the disc to Baton Rouge chiropractic care!

Disc Height Increases 

Lumbar spinal discs do respond to Baton Rouge chiropractic. Intervertebral disc height enlarges with traction. (4) That’s what happens with Cox Technic, the form of spinal manipulation Spine & Sports Rehab Center chooses to use and is well-experienced in delivering. With Cox Technic, disc height increases by 17%, and spinal area increases by 28%. (5) When discs degenerate, they lose disc height. Spinal area decreases. Spinal nerves are aggravated more easily. Spine & Sports Rehab Center’s Baton Rouge chiropractic care assists in lessening that irritation and the associated Baton Rouge back pain.

Spine & Sports Rehab Center provides spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. Together with spinal manipulation, Spine & Sports Rehab Center endorses nutritional advice about supplements with glycosaminoglycan elements glucosamine and chondroitin – both tied to the sulfate radical which draws in fluid. It is all part of your Baton Rouge treatment plan.
