New York Chiropractic Healthy News from Dr. Gary Stefanick – July 2017

 

Spine Treatment Preferred

Manual therapy spinal mobilization is preferred over physiotherapy by chronic back pain patients with disc degeneration for back pain intensity reduction and disability. (1) Not surprising to Dr. Gary Stefanick at all! The hands-on effect of mobilization is comforting; the motion elicited is healing. That is just what chiropractic offers – comfort and healing! Chiropractic care strives to first calm and lessen pain then incorporate exercise for continued pain relief and healing via strengthening to curb future back pain. Back pain relief is a team effort!  Using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management offers the best of both worlds: gentle stretching treatment to painful segments that reduces intradiscal pressures and at-home care like exercise, hot/cold therapy and nutrition to boost the pain relief and recovery. Dr. Gary Stefanick is trained and ready to share the New York back pain relief via Cox Technic with our New York chiropractic patients!

TIP of the Month: Vitamin D for the Degenerated Disc

Nutritionally, Vitamin D is such a good vitamin! Vitamin D reportedly helps bone and mood and overall health. In studying the disc of diabetic rats, researchers find a new positive: Vitamin D may well prevent and treat degenerative changes in the degenerated disc by improving the disc’s content of transforming growth factor-β and insulin-like growth factor-1. (2) What is your Vitamin D level? Let us find out together, you and Dr. Gary Stefanick! If it is low, your New York chiropractic treatment plan will include Vitamin D suggestions from your New York chiropractor!
