Pain Relief with Williamson Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Apple Country Chiropractic incorporates Cox Technic into the Williamson treatment plan forWilliamson back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height plus a 28% increase in area and a drop in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Williamson chiropractic practice) diminishes neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often comes with 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 often utilized to control low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, lessens pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A new rat study confirms that using Cox Technic offers short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why Apple Country Chiropractic uses it with our Williamson back pain patients!

Also, 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’s a goal of Williamson chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system when it is distressed by pain.

Your Williamson chiropractor is ready to talk just how important it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at Apple Country Chiropractic!
