Williamson back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Apple Country Chiropractic with spinal disc pressure reducing Williamson spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Apple Country Chiropractic shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated status. Many Williamson chiropractic patients come to Apple Country Chiropractic for disc degeneration! Interestingly, this study revealed that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs additionally and affected their intradiscal pressures as well. LRM is more stressful to disc that is more degenerative. Disc displacement was seen in degenerated and even healthy discs. The healthy discs demonsrated the most displacement. (1) Thus disc degeneration is a condition for which Apple Country Chiropractic 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 Apple Country Chiropractic, 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 Williamson back pain relief will be met!

Check out this PODCAST discussion 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 way of alleviating back pain.
