Mandeville Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression. It is popular today in back pain management for back pain relief. Mandeville Chiropractic knows our Mandeville chiropractic patients are curious about spinal decompression, too. Mandeville Chiropractic shares this discussion about Mandeville spinal decompression and how Mandeville Chiropractic addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.

Mandeville Spinal Decompression Defined

Spinal decompression is defined by the oft-referenced website “WebMD” as a gentle stretching of the spine that changes the force and position of the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs. How? The negative pressure generated by spinal decompression over time may assist by reducing herniated discs and taking pressure off of the spinal nerves and other spinal structures and allow water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to get into the discs so they can heal. (12) Mandeville Chiropractic agrees with this definition and seeks to do just that with Mandeville chiropractic care via spinal manipulation with the system known as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.

Mandeville Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic

Cox Technic used by Mandeville Chiropractic is well documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It is effective. That is why Mandeville Chiropractic chooses to apply it. A team of chiropractic and medical researchers and research-center based as well as private-practice clinicians design the studies, participate in them, and publish the outcomes of these multi-disciplinary, federally funded, multi-facility, randomized clinical control trials using the published protocols documented in textbooks and journals. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Biomechanical Outcomes (6)

Spinal decompression via Cox Technic biomechanically creates lumbar spine intradiscal pressure drops to as low as -192 mmHg and increases in intervertebral foramen nerve opening area by 28% and disc height by 2mm. (7) Spinal decompression via Cox Technic allows for cervical spine intradiscal pressure drops of as much as 168 kPa (kilopascals) which is about 1260 mmHg. (13) Cox Technic spinal decompression takes pressure off the spinal discs and nerves.

Clinical Outcomes

Mandeville chiropractic spinal decompression with Cox Technic results in back pain relief for lumbar spine back pain patients in an average of 12 visits and 29 days. (8) In the 1000 cases study, 91% of participating chiropractic patients found relief in less than 90 days, curbing back pain sufferers from crossing over into the more expensive as well as life-changing category of chronic pain. (8) This type of Mandeville spinal decompression relieves radiculopathy (leg pain) superiorly compared to medical conservative care, primarily physical therapy (PT). (9) Additionally, patients treated with spinal decompression as Cox Technic obtained less care (3) and reported less pain (4) in the following year of the study than did the PT patients.
