Researchers have noted an association between crepitus (audible tissue and joint noises) and posterior spinal joint deterioration. There may also be an association between increased joint stiffness and subtle crepitus. While previous studies have found a link between cavitation and increased vertebral mobility after spinal manipulations, a new study 1 examines the link between inaudible […]

When it comes to lumbar degenerative disc diseases and spondylosis, a longitudinal study [1. Risk factors for lumbar intervertebral disc height narrowing: a populations-based longitudinal study in the elderly] of 197 members of the elderly population of a village in Japan suggests that females—particularly those with a history of knee and back pain—have a significantly […]

Spinal stenosis—the narrowing of the spinal bone channel— has been a recognized diagnosis, particularly in patients over the age of 50, for approximately 180 years, but due to the difficulty of studying the congenital or patho-mechanic phenomenon in subjects (many of whom remain asymptomatic in the beginning stages of the disease), there is still no […]

Disc herniation, wherein a portion of the soft nucleus pulposus passes through the outer layer(s) of the vertebral disc’s sturdy annular fibrosis, occurs over time and is considered a cumulative response to hydraulic pressure. It is estimated that approximately half of the adult population may have herniated, or partially-herniated discs, though only about 2 percent […]

Cervical spine studies have historically indicated that manipulation by a qualified practitioner is the most effective means of treatment for neck pain, far exceeding placebos or exercise. Though there are various definitions and modalities of cervical manipulation, in general, treatment involves the use of applied force in a single direction perpendicular to the affected cervical […]

Intraoperative microscopy studies of sciatica patients demonstrate that disc herniation, and the adherence of spinal nerve roots to bulging or herniated discs, causes sciatica discomfort and pain when the dura matter of the frail nerve roots become attached to the hernia and compressed matter. Though the connection between sciatica pain and disc herniation is clear, […]
