Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Tonawanda chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the curious
patient!) regarding which position is most beneficial.
For the Tonawanda back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Tonawanda spine
specialist, prone is definitely desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation grounds its Tonawanda
chiropractic treatment on research. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation keeps abreast of13
new spinal care research. In a recent study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation perceives
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation 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 Tonawanda
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
explain that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table during
Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor in much the
same way as by another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Tonawanda chiropractor is so trained. Applying
the appropriate forces sets up the
best chance to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Tonawanda low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research projects. That
is thrilling to your Tonawanda chiropractor and relieving
to the Tonawanda chiropractic patients at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation!
