Lynchburg back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Palmer Chiropractic Center with spinal disc pressure reducing Lynchburg spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Palmer Chiropractic Center shares a new research study that explains that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated condition. Many Lynchburg chiropractic patients come to Palmer Chiropractic Center for disc degeneration! Interestingly, this study exhibited that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) strained degenerated discs further 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 showed 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 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center offers Cox® Technic as it is a gentle, non-surgical, disc pressure reducing, pain relieving treatment for degenerated and herniated spinal discs. Your desire for Lynchburg back pain relief will be met!

Listen to this PODCAST discussion with the developer of Cox® Technic, Dr. James Cox, from the Back Doctors’ Podcast series about Cox® Technic and its way of relieving back pain.
