Chicago KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH COX® FLEXION-DISTRACTION

Chicago knee pain is a pain that Chiropractic Care sees often. Pain meds and surgical approaches abound while a new non-surgical chiropractic approach is supplying quite promising results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic daily for Chicago back pain and neck pain relief - were customized for application with knee pain. They proved successful in easing knee pain. Overall, knee pain patients’ mean pain scores fell from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores dropped more dramatically from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores dropped from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. None of the patients had any adverse side-effects. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience in treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Chiropractic Care’s Chicago chiropractic care! Chicago knee pain sufferers are welcomed to feel this gentle, relieving Chicago knee pain treatment!

 

Chicago CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

We all can benefit from stronger hip abductors, and Chicago senior folks benefit even more. A recent article reports that chronic low back pain sufferers typically have hip abductor weakness, too. (Chiropractic Care concurs as these two are seen often in this Chicago chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises helped reduce pain and improve function in a group of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Chiropractic Care will give you some hip strengthening exercise moves you can do in the convenience of your own home alongside the Chicago chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to experience such relief yourself.
