Minster back pain and disc degeneration find relief at Minster Chiropractic Center with spinal disc pressure reducing Minster spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Minster Chiropractic Center shares a new research study that clarifies that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated state. Many Minster chiropractic patients come to Minster Chiropractic 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 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 Minster Chiropractic Center 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 Minster Chiropractic 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 Minster 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 way of alleviating back pain.

Minster chiropractic care includes exercise to help enhance back pain relief at Minster Chiropractic Center. 


The addition of neck, shoulder and upper back exercises to the usual low back exercises done by chronic low back pain patients made better their disability and reduced pain. Plus, the participants felt these benefits by doing these exercises just 3 times a week (not even daily!) for six weeks! (4) So talk with your Minster chiropractor at Minster Chiropractic Center about just how to move your body – the whole body – to get the most out of exercise for your Minster back pain relief!
