Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Two Rivers chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) concerning which position is most advantageous.
For the Two Rivers 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 Two Rivers spine
specialist, prone is surely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Lakeshore Chiropractic prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research agrees!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Lakeshore Chiropractic bases its Two Rivers
chiropractic treatment on research. Lakeshore Chiropractic keeps up with
new spinal care research. In a new 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 reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Lakeshore Chiropractic sees
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Lakeshore Chiropractic is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Lakeshore Chiropractic applies 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 applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Two Rivers
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and movable 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 Lakeshore Chiropractic. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one proficient chiropractor like another proficient chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Two Rivers chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the appropriate forces makes available the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Two Rivers low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research projects. That
is exciting to your Two Rivers chiropractor and relieving
to the Two Rivers chiropractic patients at Lakeshore Chiropractic!
