Pain Relief with Chicago Chiropractic Care: Cox
Chiropractic Care incorporates Cox Technic into the
Chicago treatment plan forChicago back pain relief. Cox Technic
research shows a 17% increase in disc height as
well as a 28% increase in area and a drop in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg.
Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Chiropractic Care recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this Chicago chiropractic practice) diminishes
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 commonly
utilized to control low back pain. Just one
month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, alleviates
pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted
with those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A
new rat study reaffirms that using Cox
Technic offers short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason Chiropractic Care uses it with our Chicago back pain patients!
Further, spinal manipulation affects
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 Chicago
chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system
when it is distressed by pain.

Chicago Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”
Peculiar how recommendations are
always for somebody else! A Canadian study shared
that, when questioned, young adults recognized that
calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not
how essential it was for them. (5) Calcium is essential
for all ages! Your Chicago chiropractor is ready to talk
just how valuable it is for you.
We look forward to your next Chicago visit soon at Chiropractic Care!
