Pain Relief with New Roads Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

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

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this New Roads chiropractic practice) alleviates neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is often used to reduce low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, relieves pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with those without leg pain. Great news! A new study with rats reaffirms that using Cox Technic provides short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s why New Roads Chiropractic Center chooses to use it with our New Roads back pain patients!

Also, 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 is a goal of New Roads chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it’s affected by pain.
