Chiropractic Adjustments Reduce the Risk Spinal Degeneration

For the many millions of people that receive Regular Chiropractic check-ups and adjustments, reducing the risks and in some cases, reversal of the effects of joint and disc degeneration in the spine is a major benefit. Medical studies dating back to the early 1980’s help prove the importance of spinal adjustments to reduce the risk of arthritis, decay, and degeneration of the spine.

Posture is the position in which you hold your body upright against gravity while standing, sitting, or lying down. The position of your spinal column is reflected in your posture.

When the Spine Does Not Move It DEGENERATES

Speaking to 22 people last night was an absolute privilege. Helping them understand the cause of Low Back Pain I could see light bulbs going on and hope being restored.

Research clearly states that degeneration occurs within a misaligned spine or a spine not moving appropriately. A study published in 2004 evaluated the spine of mice when researchers placed metal rods on their spinal vertebrae preventing specific vertebral movement. Immobility in the spine almost immediately began producing significant decay and degeneration. Surfaces of the bone and discs showed degeneration after just one to four weeks of decreased movement in a spinal vertebra. Bone spurs began to form at the edges of the immobile vertebrae after four to eight weeks of reduced spinal vertebral mobility. The most important finding of this research showed that irreversible degeneration resulted if movement was not restored within the first one to four week time frame.

How often do I check my children for bio-mechanical proplems in the Spine?

In this paper I will discuss the significance of the 2015 study published in the American Journal of Neuroradiology called

“MRI Findings of Disc Degeneration are More Prevalent in Adults with Low Back Pain than in Asymptomatic Controls.”

Chiropractic care for my children has been an integral part of their health care regime from the day that they were born. Contrary to the majority of the population, chiropractic care for infants and children remains relatively new to most parents, especially those of older generations.

The holiday season brings out the best and worst of times. Millions of families look forward to gathering together to make precious memories but the fun of celebrating Christmas and New Years with loved ones often comes at the price of increased stress.
