Healthy News from Your Brooks Chiropractor January 2018

Brooks back pain and disc degeneration find help at Soft Health and Healing Clinic with spinal disc pressure reducing Brooks spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Soft Health and Healing Clinic shares a new research study that explains that degenerated discs are already stressed because of their degenerated condition. Many Brooks chiropractic patients come to Soft Health and Healing Clinic for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study demonstrated that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) strained degenerated discs further and disrupted their intradiscal pressures as well. 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 our chiropractic practice 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 Soft Health and Healing Clinic, 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 Brooks back pain relief will be met!

Check out this PODCAST talk with the developer of Cox® Technic, Dr. James Cox, from the Back Doctors’ Podcast series that shares actual experiences of Cox Technic care for patients and their physicians and its method of relieving back pain.

Brooks chiropractic care includes exercise to help enhance back pain relief at Soft Health and Healing Clinic. 


Chronic low back pain sufferers’ pain and disability recovered with their use of neck, shoulder, and upper back exercises in addition to low back-specific exercises. Additionally, the participants felt these benefits by performing these exercises just 3 times a week (not even daily!) for 6 weeks! (4) So talk with your Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic about just how to move your body – all its parts – to get the most out of exercise for your Brooks back pain relief!
