Preston KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH COX® FLEXION-DISTRACTION

Preston knee pain is a pain that Chiropractic Associates sees often. Pain medications and surgical options abound while a new non-surgical chiropractic treatment is supplying quite promising results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic all the time for Preston back pain and neck pain relief - were adapted for use with knee pain. They demonstrated success in relieving knee pain. Overall, knee pain patients’ mean pain scores fell from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. In particular, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores fell even more from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores fell from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. No one in the study experienced any adverse reactions. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience with treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Chiropractic Associates’s Preston chiropractic care! Preston knee pain sufferers are invited to feel this gentle, relieving Preston knee pain treatment!

 

Preston CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

We all can benefit from stronger hip abductors, and Preston older folks gain even more. A recent article states that chronic low back pain sufferers usually have hip abductor weakness, too. (Chiropractic Associates agrees as this pairing is seen frequently in this Preston chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises helped reduce pain and improve function in a set of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Chiropractic Associates will share some hip strengthening exercises you can do at home along with the Preston chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to get such relief yourself.
