Easley back pain and disc degeneration find help at Young Chiropractic with spinal disc pressure reducing Easley spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Young Chiropractic shares a new research study that explains that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated state. Many Easley chiropractic patients come to Young Chiropractic for disc degeneration! Interestingly, this study demonstrated 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 seen in degenerated and even healthy discs. The healthy discs showed 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 decrease 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 Young Chiropractic, 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 Easley back pain relief will be met!

Listen to this PODCAST discussion 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.

Easley chiropractic care includes exercise to help enhance back pain relief at Young Chiropractic. 


The addition of neck, shoulder and upper back exercises to the usual low back exercises done by chronic low back pain patients improved disability and decreased pain. Additionally, the participants attained these benefits by doing these exercises just 3 times a week (not even daily!) for 6 weeks! (4) So talk with your Easley chiropractor at Young Chiropractic about just how to move your body – the whole body – to get the most out of exercise for your Easley back pain relief!
