Preston back pain and disc degeneration find help at Chiropractic Associates with spinal disc pressure reducing Preston spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Chiropractic Associates shares a new research study that describes that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated condition. Many Preston chiropractic patients come to Chiropractic Associates for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study showed that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) strained degenerated discs additionally 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 demonsrated the most displacement. (1) Thus disc degeneration is a condition for which Chiropractic Associates 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 Chiropractic Associates, 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 Preston back pain relief will be met!
