Plainville back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Layden Chiropractic with spinal disc pressure reducing Plainville spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Layden Chiropractic shares a new research study that describes that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated status. Many Plainville chiropractic patients come to Layden Chiropractic for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study revealed that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs further and disrupted their intradiscal pressures too. 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 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.
