Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Williamson chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the inquisitive
patient!) concerning which position is most advantageous.
For the Williamson back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Williamson spine
specialist, prone is surely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Apple Country Chiropractic prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research agrees!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Apple Country Chiropractic grounds its Williamson
chiropractic treatment on research. Apple Country Chiropractic keeps abreast of13
current 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 might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic perceives
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Apple Country Chiropractic is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Apple Country Chiropractic utilizes a special 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 Williamson
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
note 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 taught reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Apple Country Chiropractic. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor just like another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Williamson chiropractor is so trained. Using
the proper forces makes available the
best opportunity to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Williamson low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Williamson chiropractor and relieving
to the Williamson chiropractic patients at Apple Country Chiropractic!
