14 Jun Sunset Chiropractic & Wellness Research Review: Association between spinal alignment and biochemical composition of lumbar intervertebral discs assessed by quantitative magnetic resonance imaging
Results: Lumbar lordosis decrease correlates with discrete dehydration of nucleus pulposus at all lumbar levels. Also low values of sacral slope, pelvic tilt, pelvic incidence, thoracic kyphosis and spinal sacral angle were associated with decrease of T2 relaxation times on annulus fibrosus.
Conclusions: In conclusion, spinopelvic parameters presented a discrete association with lumbar disc composition and water content.
At Sunset Chiropractic & Wellness spinal treatment is selected and designed from a thorough consultation, medical health history, physical examination (orthopedic/neurological testing), digital posture analysis, weight bearing sitting x-rays using 41 measurements and 23 angles analyzing and comparing the spine to a mathematical model. In specific cases additional diagnostics could be ordered (Digital Motion X-rays/CTs/MRIs) to obtain or confirm a diagnosis.
After our team of Doctors study your case, you will then receive a report of findings. This is when the doctor will go over what he found is causing your health conditions and explain your individualized treatment plan and recommendations.
Sunset Chiropractic and Wellness’s Structural Correction Chiropractic Care rehabilitate the damaged spine and its damaged structures (muscles, ligaments, fascia, discs, bone, and nerves) improving the structure and functions, reducing and removing the pain, and improving overall quality of life.
Our unique rehabilitation system has 4 major treatment components working synergistically together to achieve phenomenal results without drugs or surgery.
FLEXIBILITY AND HYDRATION PROCEDURES
The first step in the rehabilitation of a damaged weakened spine is known as our flexibility and hydration procedures. Specialized structural chiropractic rehabilitation equipment designed to increase spinal flexibility, improving spinal disc hydration and nutrition, and decreasing stiff painful muscles, ligaments, and tendons along the patient’s spine.
- Spinal Alignment Procedures
Once the supporting spinal structures are relaxed, flexible and spinal discs are rehydrated the doctor will then direct the spine into proper alignment based off 41 measurements and 23 angles from the X-rays through safe, gentle and effective spinal adjustments, referred to as the Structural Chiropractic Alignment Procedures.
- Strengthening and Reeducation Procedures Once we get the spine into an improved alignment we want the body to start hold these new improved positions naturally. This is the we apply the Strengthening and Re-education Procedures. Retraining the brain and strengthening the posture muscles along the spine to get the body to hold the new positions naturally. This is achieved through the use of our specialized body weighting system combined with specialized vibration therapy. The vibration therapy strengths postural muscles, decreases inflammation and pain, increases circulation, increases flexibility, and improves bone mass.
- Home Rehabilitation System
Our unique clinic treatment combined with a patient specific home rehabilitation program accelerates the improvements and helps to maintain your result
