Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Chicago chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the inquisitive
patient!) about which position is most advantageous.
For the Chicago back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Chicago spine
specialist, prone is definitely desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Chiropractic Care prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research agrees!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Chiropractic Care grounds its Chicago
chiropractic treatment on research. Chiropractic Care keeps up with
current spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position brought about immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Chiropractic Care notes
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Chiropractic Care knows
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Chiropractic Care applies 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 Chicago
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
note that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table during
Cox Technic can be taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Care. This means a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor in much the
same way as by another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Chicago chiropractor is trained in this. Applying
the proper forces allows the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Chicago low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Chicago chiropractor and relieving
to the Chicago chiropractic patients at Chiropractic Care!
