In Manchester, Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries treats patients like you the entire day, every day in clinical practice. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries offers relief of degenerative disc disease pain under chiropractic treatment is based on the following data.
Degenerative Disc Disease Changes How You Move
When a disc degenerates, it alters the normal motion and movements of the lower back or neck. Do you find that you cannot move your spine as smoothly and completely when you have lower back pain?
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries looks at this issue this way. Within the spine are joints called facet joints where motion takes place. The intervertebral disc is in front of these joints.
A normal disc accepts 90% of the weight bearing of the entire body when we stand, sit or move the spine.
A degenerative disc (one that has lost its flexibility and shrunk in size) forces the facet joints to carry much more than the 10% they normally do.
Under such compressive pressure, the facets become painful and lose their usual movements. You don't move like you used to.
Degenerative disc disease alters normal motion of your spine. (1) Patients with disc degeneration show unusual motion in certain areas of the spine like...
- More side bending movement.
- Less rotation in the upper part of the low back when bending forward and backward at the waist.
- More twisting and rotation in the lower part of the low back.
Such increased rotational motion at the point of the spine where degenerative disc disease occurs also causes neighboring areas of the spine to degenerate as well. This is the nature of the beast - degenerative disc disease continually worsens and spreads if not given proper attention.
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries has a plan to slow down degeneration, stop pain and return motion.
