Fort Wayne Spinal DecompressionSpinal decompression. It’s popular today in back pain management for back pain relief. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC knows our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients are curious about spinal decompression, too. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC shares this discussion about Fort Wayne spinal decompression and how Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic. Fort Wayne Spinal Decompression Defined Spinal decompression is defined by the well-known website “WebMD” as a gentle stretching of the spine that changes the force and position of the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs. How? The negative pressure generated by spinal decompression over time may assist by reducing herniated discs and taking pressure off of the spinal nerves and other spinal structures and allow water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to get into the discs so they can heal. (12) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC goes along with this description and aspires to do just that with Fort Wayne chiropractic care via spinal manipulation with the system known as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation. Fort Wayne Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic Cox Technic used by Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC is well documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It’s effective. That’s why Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC chooses to apply it. A team of chiropractic and medical researchers and research-center based as well as private-practice clinicians design the studies, participate in them, and publish the outcomes of these multi-disciplinary, federally funded, multi-facility, randomized clinical control trials using the published protocols documented in textbooks and journals. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) Biomechanical Outcomes (6) Spinal decompression via Cox Technic biomechanically creates lumbar spine intradiscal pressure decreases to as low as -192 mmHg and increases in intervertebral foramen nerve opening area by 28% and disc height by 2mm. (7) Spinal decompression via Cox Technic creates cervical spine intradiscal pressure drops of as much as 168 kPa (kilopascals) which is about 1260 mmHg. (13) Cox Technic spinal decompression reduces pressure on the spinal discs and nerves.

(8) In the 1000 cases study, 91% of participating chiropractic patients found relief in less than 90 days, curbing back pain sufferers from entering the more costly as well as life-changing category of chronic pain. (8) This type of Fort Wayne spinal decompression alleviates radiculopathy (leg pain) commandingly compared to medical conservative care, primarily physical therapy (PT).
