Fort Wayne back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center with spinal disc pressure reducing Fort Wayne spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated state. Many Fort Wayne chiropractic patients come to Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center for disc degeneration! Interestingly, this study showed that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs additionally and disrupted their intradiscal pressures too. The more degenerated the disc, the more stressful LRM is. Disc displacement was seen in degenerated and even healthy discs. The healthy discs demonsrated the most displacement. (1) Thus disc degeneration is a condition for which Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center offers Cox® Technic, a special form of chiropractic 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. (2,3) At Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center, herniated discs and degenerated discs are treated to Cox Technic, a gentle, non-surgical, disc pressure reducing, pain relieving form of hands-on spinal manipulation. Your desire for Fort Wayne back pain relief will be met!

Listen to this PODCAST talk with the developer of Cox® Technic, Dr. James Cox, from the Back Doctors’ Podcast series about Cox® Technic and its method of alleviating back pain.
