Pain Relief with Preston Chiropractic Care: Cox
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.
Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Chiropractic Associates recognizes the good of this
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 accompanies 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!
