Healthy News from Your Chicago Chiropractor – January 2018

Chicago back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Chiropractic Care with spinal disc pressure reducing Chicago spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Chiropractic Care shares a new research study that explains that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated status. Many Chicago chiropractic patients come to Chiropractic Care for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study revealed that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) strained degenerated discs additionally and disrupted their intradiscal pressures too. LRM is more stressful to disc that is more degenerative. Disc displacement was seen in degenerated and even healthy discs. The healthy discs showed the most displacement. (1) Thus disc degeneration is a condition for which Chiropractic Care offers Cox® Technic, a special form of chiropractic spinal manipulation which is research-documented to reduce 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. (2,3) Chiropractic Care offers Cox® Technic as it is a gentle, non-surgical, disc pressure reducing, pain relieving treatment for degenerated and herniated spinal discs. Your longing for Chicago back pain relief will be met!
