Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated condition.

LRM is more stressful to disc that is more degenerative. Disc displacement was observed in degenerated and even healthy discs. The healthy discs showed the most displacement. (1) Thus disc degeneration is a condition for which our chiropractic practice offers Cox® Technic, chiropractic flexion distraction spinal manipulation which is research-documented to decrease intradiscal pressures in degenerated discs. This happens in both cervical (from 96 to 1583mmHg pressure) and lumbar (to as low as -192mmHg pressure) spine discs.
