Ottawa back pain and disc degeneration find help at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider with spinal disc pressure reducing Ottawa spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider shares a new research study that describes that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated condition. Many Ottawa chiropractic patients come to The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider for disc degeneration! Interestingly, this study exhibited that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs additionally and disrupted 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 showed the most displacement. (1) Thus disc degeneration is a condition for which our chiropractic practice offers Cox® Technic, a special form of chiropractic 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) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider offers Cox® Technic as it is a gentle, non-surgical, disc pressure reducing, pain relieving treatment for degenerated and herniated spinal discs. Your wish for Ottawa back pain relief will be met!
