Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Preston chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) about which position is most advantageous.
For the Preston back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Preston spine
specialist, prone is certainly desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Chiropractic Associates prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research approves!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Chiropractic Associates bases its Preston
chiropractic treatment on research. Chiropractic Associates keeps up with
current spinal care research. In a recent study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Chiropractic Associates perceives
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Chiropractic Associates is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is often recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Chiropractic Associates applies a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Preston
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
document that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table with
Cox Technic can be instructed reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Associates. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor just like another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Preston chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the proper forces allows the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Preston low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Preston chiropractor and relieving
to the Preston chiropractic patients at Chiropractic Associates!
