Colorado Springs back pain and disc degeneration find relief at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR with spinal disc pressure reducing Colorado Springs spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR shares a new research study that describes that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated condition. Many Colorado Springs chiropractic patients come to The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR for disc degeneration! Interestingly, this study demonstrated that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) strained degenerated discs additionally and disrupted 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 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 The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR, 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.
