Pain Relief with Preston Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Chiropractic Associates incorporates Cox Technic into the Preston treatment plan forPreston back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height plus a 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Chiropractic Associates recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Preston chiropractic practice) alleviates neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly used to manage low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, lessens pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with those without leg pain. Great news! A new study with rats confirms that using Cox Technic delivers short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Chiropractic Associates uses it with our Preston back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation affects pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin along with interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of Preston chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it is affected by pain.

Preston Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”

Funny how recommendations are always for somebody else! A Canadian study reported that, when questioned, young adults knew that calcium is important for kids and older adults but not how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is important for all ages! Your Preston chiropractor is ready to talk just how valuable it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at Chiropractic Associates!
