Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Fort Wayne chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the curious
patient!) as to which position is most advantageous.
For the Fort Wayne back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Fort Wayne spine
specialist, prone is certainly desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research agrees!
ADVANTAGES OF PRONE TREATMENT
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc grounds its Fort Wayne
chiropractic treatment on research. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc keeps abreast of13
current spinal care research. In a recent 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 found that a
hallmark of spinal traction could lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc sees
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc utilizes a distinctive form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented 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 Fort Wayne
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
state 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 consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. 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
Fort Wayne chiropractor is trained in this. Applying
the proper forces sets up the
best chance to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Fort Wayne low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Fort Wayne chiropractor and relieving
to the Fort Wayne chiropractic patients at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc!
