San Jose back pain and disc degeneration find help at Chiropractic Solutions with spinal disc pressure reducing San Jose spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

McMurray Chiropractic Solutions shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated status. Many San Jose chiropractic patients come to McMurray Chiropractic Solutions 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 showed the most displacement. (1) Thus disc degeneration is a condition for which McMurray Chiropractic Solutions 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) At McMurray Chiropractic Solutions, 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.
