Sandy Springs back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Cross Chiropractic Center with spinal disc pressure reducing Sandy Springs spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Cross Chiropractic Center shares a new research study that explains that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated state. Many Sandy Springs chiropractic patients come to Cross Chiropractic Center for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study exhibited that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) strained degenerated discs further and disrupted their intradiscal pressures as well. 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, 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 Cross Chiropractic 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.
