Research published in Spine conclude that spinal joints afflicted with arthritis reveal diminished joint mobility. This is not a big surprise and a no-brainer since a lack of mobility is detrimental to the health of the discs of the spine and may lead to the water loss found in the discs.
The discs of the spine require motion to draw in nutrients from the edges of the vertebra. This is due to the lack of blood supply to the discs.
The good news here is with the understanding of the requirement of motion to keep the spinal joints healthy, etc., we can promote this movement to keep joint disc degeneration from occurring.
A variety of chiropractic techniques are great at promoting this normal motion back into the spinal segments.
