Healthy News from Your Watertown Chiropractor January 2018

Watertown back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Watertown Wellness Center with spinal disc pressure reducing Watertown spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Watertown Wellness Center shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated condition. Many Watertown chiropractic patients come to Watertown Wellness Center for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study showed that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) strained degenerated discs additionally and affected 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 Watertown Wellness Center 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 Watertown Wellness Center, 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 Watertown back pain relief will be met!

Check out this PODCAST talk with the developer of Cox® Technic, Dr. James Cox, from the Back Doctors’ Podcast series that shares actual experiences of Cox Technic care for patients and their physicians and its method of alleviating back pain.
