Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height as well as a 28% increase in area and a decrease in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc recognizes the good of this increase. And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Fort Wayne chiropractic practice) alleviates neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly utilized to control 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. Fantastic news! A new study with rats confirms that using Cox Technic produces short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc uses it with our Fort Wayne back pain patients! Also, spinal manipulation influences pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That’s a goal of Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it is distressed by pain.
