Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Vancouver Spine Care Centre shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated condition. Many Vancouver chiropractic patients come to Vancouver Spine Care Centre for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study showed that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) strained degenerated discs additionally and disrupted their intradiscal pressures too. The more degenerated the disc, the more stressful LRM is. 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 Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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.
