Slipped disc & pinched nerve recovery
Spinal manipulation therapy
- Produce beneficial effects on the intervertebral disc in the spine and significantly decrease the symptoms of a slipped disc and sciatica.
- Increase range of motion of the spine and improve posture and spinal proprioception.
- Decrease muscle weakness and muscle spasms in the presence and absence of pain.
- Increase muscle strength and enhance motor programming, control, and learning task performance and neural mechanisms at higher brain areas.
- Produce immediate relief of and significantly decrease acute and chronic neck pain and back pain and reduce pain by neural mechanisms at higher brain areas.
- Decrease peripheral and central sensitization, increase lowered pain threshold and reduce increased sensitivity to pain.
- More effective versus analgesic medications (pain killers) in treating muscle-joint pain and disorders with fewer side effects than non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Localized Cryostimulation therapy
- Decrease pain and improve functional outcomes in individuals with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) confirmed intervertebral herniation disc.
- Allow more movement in the inflamed and painful joint and spine, resulting in increased muscle flexibility, and range of motion increased active muscle power, and enhanced and facilitated physical therapy and rehabilitation.
- Attenuate the aberrant inflammatory process, possible edema formation, arthrogenic muscle inhibition, and limit protein degradation.
- Decrease the frequency and degree of pain perception and the use of pain killers and improve the range of physical activity and well-being in osteoarthritis of the spine.
- Produce beneficial effects in individuals with sciatica and ankylosing spondylitis and confirmed through thermovision.
- Produce a neuroprotective effect and enhance nerve injury recovery and regeneration by including up-regulation of cold shock proteins RBM3 (RNA binding motif 3).
- Cause tissue ischemia below harmful levels and reduce the nerve conduction velocity of pain fibers.
Current issues regarding slipped disc & pinched nerve
- Slipped disc in young, healthy, active individuals and athletes: the incidence of a slipped disc increase at an alarming pace in the younger and more active population.
- A common reason for workdays lost: lumbar intervertebral disc herniation is also the most common reason for an individual to undergo spinal surgery; a slipped disc can lead to excruciating referred leg and arm pain.
- Angiogenesis plays a critical role in neural tissue healing and recovery: injured and damaged neural tissue recovers very slowly and is often incomplete; despite the ubiquitous nature of peripheral entrapment neuropathies, they are underdiagnosed underreported, and sometimes not adequately managed, especially in developing countries.
- Arthrogenic muscle inhibition: an ongoing neural inhibition that can prevent your healthy spine muscles from fully activating, even if you are pain-free. Repetitive postural straining-poor posture, overuse, and trauma to your spine are some causes and contributing factors. In addition, athletes and the active individual must understand that a dysfunctional spine segment or a “misalignment” can cause significant weakness of your healthy spine and limb muscles via shared nerve supply-segmental innervation, even if the dysfunctional spinal joint does not present with pain or other symptoms.
- Pain itself manifest as a complex biopsychosocial problem: the inability to move efficiently as well as the neck and back pain itself affect a human’s expectations of self-efficacy, that is, a human being’s belief in their ability to complete tasks and reach goals as it is associated with detrimental changes in mood, sleep, coping skills and lower financial income.
- Unwanted pharmaceutical adverse effects for mechanical back pain: chronic mechanical back pain is becoming a significant health issue concerning increased and regular pharmaceutical usage.
