Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Mandeville chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the interested
patient!) concerning which position is most beneficial.
For the Mandeville back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Mandeville spine
specialist, prone is definitely favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Mandeville Chiropractic prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research agrees!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Mandeville Chiropractic grounds its Mandeville
chiropractic treatment on research. Mandeville Chiropractic keeps up with
new spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position brought about immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Mandeville Chiropractic sees
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Mandeville Chiropractic is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Mandeville Chiropractic applies a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Mandeville
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
document 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 reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Mandeville Chiropractic. This means a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor just like another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Mandeville chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the proper forces sets up the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Mandeville low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Mandeville chiropractor and relieving
to the Mandeville chiropractic patients at Mandeville Chiropractic!
