Pain Relief with Pflugerville Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Pflugerville Wellness Center incorporates Cox Technic into the Pflugerville treatment plan forPflugerville back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height in addition to the 28% increase in area and a decrease in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Pflugerville Wellness Center recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Pflugerville chiropractic practice) eases neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is often used to control low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, eases pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A new rat study reaffirms that using Cox Technic provides short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason Pflugerville Wellness Center uses it with our Pflugerville 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 Pflugerville chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system when it’s upset by pain.
