Manchester back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries with spinal disc pressure reducing Manchester spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries shares a new research study that explains that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated condition. Many Manchester chiropractic patients come to Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries for disc degeneration! Interestingly, this study demonstrated that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs further and affected their intradiscal pressures as well. 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 our chiropractic practice offers Cox® Technic, chiropractic flexion distraction 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) At Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries, 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 longing for Manchester back pain relief will be met!
