Pain Relief with Tonawanda Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation incorporates Cox Technic into the Tonawanda treatment plan forTonawanda back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height plus a 28% increase in area and a decrease in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Tonawanda chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that spreads 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 often used to control 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 compared to those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A new study with rats reaffirms that using Cox Technic delivers short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation chooses to use it with our Tonawanda back pain patients!

Further, 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 Tonawanda chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system when it is affected by pain.
