Pflugerville back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Pflugerville Wellness Center with spinal disc pressure reducing Pflugerville spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Pflugerville Wellness Center shares a new research study that explains that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated state. Many Pflugerville chiropractic patients come to Pflugerville Wellness Center for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study exhibited 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 observed in degenerated and even healthy discs. The healthy discs demonsrated 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.
