Many La Grande chiropractic patients come to Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study demonstrated that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) strained degenerated discs further and affected their intradiscal pressures too. LRM is more stressful to disc that is more degenerative. 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 Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC 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.
