Paramus back pain and disc degeneration find help at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center with spinal disc pressure reducing Paramus spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center shares a new research study that explains that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated condition. Many Paramus chiropractic patients come to Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study revealed that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs further and affected 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 Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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. (2,3) At Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center, 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 Paramus back pain relief will be met!

Listen to this PODCAST talk with the developer of Cox® Technic, Dr. James Cox, from the Back Doctors’ Podcast series about Cox® Technic and its way of relieving back pain.
