Vancouver back pain and disc degeneration find help at Vancouver Disc Centers with spinal disc pressure reducing Vancouver spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Vancouver Disc Centers shares a new research study that explains that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated condition. Many Vancouver chiropractic patients come to Vancouver Disc Centers for disc degeneration! Interestingly, this study showed that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) strained degenerated discs additionally and affected their intradiscal pressures as well. 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 Vancouver Disc Centers, 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 desire for Vancouver back pain relief will be met!

The addition of neck, shoulder and upper back exercises to the usual low back exercises done by chronic low back pain patients made better their disability and reduced pain. Plus, the participants felt these benefits by performing these exercises just 3 times a week (not even daily!) for 6 weeks!
