Chiropractic is healing. Chiropractic decompresses compressed nerves. Compressed nerves induce pain. New Hampshire Spine and Sport is chiropractic healing for so many in Southern New Hampshire. New research is exhibiting just how a tiny amount of compression can cause tremendous damage. That’s where chiropractic comes into play. The basis of chiropractic itself is that neural compression causes human disease. It’s pleasent and promising to see research documenting this assertion now. New Hampshire Spine and Sport welcomes such research.
Now, it takes startingly little pressure to cause much pain. Your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor knows this. We hear so often “Doc, I didn’t do anything! This pain is excruciating!” We know! This new paper shares that cell death and death of neurons in the dorsal root ganglion. Pressures as low as .3 MPA (43.5 psi) for just 10 minutes may be harmful to your spinal nerve cells. (1)
Another article shows a similar result. After just 10 minutes of 1-N compression (145 psi), the tibialis anterior muscle (located in the front of the leg) is affected adversely. Its nerve amplitude decreased to 69% of baseline. Researchers allowed the nerve a rest period and measured it again. The nerve amplitude returned to 98%. After 10 minutes of 2-N compression (290 psi) the tibialis anterior muscle decreased to 27% and after the recovery period, returned to just 30% of baseline. (2) Wow! That’s why New Hampshire Spine and Sport wants to see our Southern New Hampshire back pain and neck pain patients as soon as possible after the pain starts. Pressure on the nerves starts its deadly attack quickly.
Science and research continue to document the effectiveness of chiropractic care. Its gentle spinal manipulation technique, Cox Technic, safely and effectively reduces pressure on the nerves. New Hampshire Spine and Sport chooses Cox Technic for its evidence-based protocols (especially the 50% Rule) and well-documented outcomes. It’s been shown to drop pressures in the lower back to as low as -192mm Hg pressure and in the cervical spine by 502mm Hg. (3,4,5,6)
