Plymouth back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology with spinal disc pressure reducing Plymouth spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology shares a new research study that explains that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated state. Many Plymouth chiropractic patients come to Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology for disc degeneration! Interestingly, this study demonstrated that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) strained degenerated discs further and disrupted their intradiscal pressures too. The more degenerated the disc, the more stressful LRM is. 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, chiropractic flexion distraction 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 Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology, 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 longing for Plymouth back pain relief will be met!
