Tonawanda back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation with spinal disc pressure reducing Tonawanda spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated state. Many Tonawanda chiropractic patients come to Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study demonstrated that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs further and disrupted their intradiscal pressures as well. The more degenerated the disc, the more stressful LRM is. 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.
