Healthy News from Your Fort Wayne Chiropractor January 2018 Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated state. Many Fort Wayne chiropractic patients come to Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC 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. LRM is more stressful to disc that is more degenerative. 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 our chiropractic practice 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.
