Is Mandeville Spinal Traction Face Down Or Face Up Best? Face Down!

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 proficient chiropractor in much the same way as by another proficient 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!
