Pain Relief with Mandeville Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Mandeville Chiropractic incorporates Cox Technic into the Mandeville treatment plan forMandeville back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height along with a 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Mandeville Chiropractic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Mandeville chiropractic practice) eases neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is often utilized to control low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, eases pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Great news! A new rat study confirms that using Cox Technic offers short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why Mandeville Chiropractic chooses to use it with our Mandeville 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’s a goal of Mandeville chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system when it’s affected by pain.

Mandeville Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”

Funny how recommendations are always for someone else! A Canadian study reported that, when asked, young adults recognized that calcium is essential for kids and older adults but not how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is important for all ages! Your Mandeville chiropractor is ready to discuss just how valuable it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at Mandeville Chiropractic!
