Healthy News from Your Augusta Chiropractor January 2018

Augusta back pain and disc degeneration find help at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic with spinal disc pressure reducing Augusta spinal manipulation.  

Gentle, Effective, Pain-Relieving Treatment of Degenerated Discs

Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic shares a new research study that explains that degenerated discs are already stressed due to their degenerated state. Many Augusta chiropractic patients come to Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic for disc degeneration! Curiously, this study demonstrated that lumbar rotational manipulation (LRM) (seated or side-lying) stressed degenerated discs further and disrupted 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 Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic offers Cox® Technic, chiropractic flexion distraction 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 Lombardy Chiropractic 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 wish for Augusta 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.

Augusta chiropractic care includes exercise to help enhance back pain relief at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic. 


Adding neck, shoulder and upper back exercises to the usual low back exercises done by chronic low back pain patients improved disability and reduced pain. Plus, the participants realized these benefits by performing these exercises just 3 times a week (not even daily!) for 6 weeks! (4) So talk with your Augusta chiropractor at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic about just how to move your body – the whole body – to get the most out of exercise for your Augusta back pain relief!
