Georgetown back pain and disc degeneration find help at Dr. Butwell with spinal disc pressure reducing Georgetown spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Dr. Butwell shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated condition. Many Georgetown chiropractic patients come to Dr. Butwell for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study exhibited that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs additionally and affected their intradiscal pressures too. The more degenerated the disc, the more stressful LRM is. Disc displacement was seen in degenerated and even healthy discs. The healthy discs demonsrated the most displacement. (1) Thus disc degeneration is a condition for which Dr. Butwell offers Cox® Technic, a special form of chiropractic 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 Dr. Butwell, 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.
