Toronto back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre with spinal disc pressure reducing Toronto spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated condition. Many Toronto chiropractic patients come to Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study demonstrated that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs further 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 demonsrated the most displacement. (1) Thus disc degeneration is a condition for which Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, 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 Toronto 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 way of alleviating back pain.

Plus, the participants felt these benefits by doing these exercises just three times a week (not even daily!) for six weeks!
