Pain Relief with Two Rivers Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

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

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Two Rivers chiropractic practice) diminishes neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly utilized to manage low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, eases pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Great news! A new rat study confirms that using Cox Technic offers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason Lakeshore Chiropractic uses it with our Two Rivers back pain patients!

Further, 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 Two Rivers chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it’s affected by pain.

Your Two Rivers chiropractor is ready to talk just how valuable it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at Lakeshore Chiropractic!
