Mandeville KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH COX® FLEXION-DISTRACTION

Mandeville knee pain is a pain that Mandeville Chiropractic sees a lot. Pain meds and surgical options abound while a new non-surgical chiropractic approach is revealing good results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic all the time for Mandeville back pain and neck pain relief - were adapted for application with knee pain. They proved successful in easing knee pain. Overall, the mean pain scores for knee pain patients dropped from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale 1 least pain, 10 most pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores fell more dramatically from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores fell from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. No one in the study reported any adverse side-effects. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience with treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Mandeville Chiropractic’s Mandeville chiropractic care! Mandeville knee pain sufferers are welcomed to experience this gentle, relieving Mandeville knee pain treatment!

 

Mandeville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

We all can gain from stronger hip abductors, and Mandeville older folks benefit even more. A new article states that people with chronic low back pain typically have hip abductor weakness, too. (Mandeville Chiropractic agrees as this pairing is seen often in this Mandeville chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises relieved pain and improved function in a set of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Mandeville Chiropractic will give you some hip strengthening exercises you can do at home alongside the Mandeville chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to achieve such relief yourself.
