Eugene back pain and disc degeneration find help at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic with spinal disc pressure reducing Eugene spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated condition. Many Eugene chiropractic patients come to Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic for disc degeneration! Interestingly, this study showed that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs further 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 showed the most displacement. (1) Thus disc degeneration is a condition for which our chiropractic practice 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) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 Eugene back pain relief will be met!

Listen to this PODCAST talk with the developer of Cox® Technic, Dr. James Cox, from the Back Doctors’ Podcast series about Cox® Technic and its method of alleviating back pain.
