Healthy News from Your Carrolltown Chiropractor January 2018

Carrolltown back pain and disc degeneration find help at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation with spinal disc pressure reducing Carrolltown spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated condition. Many Carrolltown chiropractic patients come to Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study revealed that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs additionally and affected their intradiscal pressures too. LRM is more stressful to disc that is more degenerative. 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 Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 Carrolltown back pain relief will be met!
