Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your New Roads chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the inquisitive
patient!) as to which position is most advantageous.
For the New Roads back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your New Roads spine
specialist, prone is certainly desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At New Roads Chiropractic Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
New Roads Chiropractic Center centers its New Roads
chiropractic treatment on research. New Roads Chiropractic Center keeps up with
current spinal care research. In a recent study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction could lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center perceives
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as New Roads Chiropractic Center is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
New Roads Chiropractic Center uses a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your New Roads
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
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 such a table during
Cox Technic can be taught reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at New Roads Chiropractic Center. This means a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor in
much the same way as by another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
New Roads chiropractor is so trained. Using
the appropriate forces sets up the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for New Roads low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research projects. That
is exciting to your New Roads chiropractor and relieving
to the New Roads chiropractic patients at New Roads Chiropractic Center!
