Pain Relief with Pflugerville Chiropractic Care: Cox
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.
Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Pflugerville Wellness Center recognizes the good of this
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.

Pflugerville Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”
Peculiar how recommendations are
always for someone else! A Canadian study shared
that, when asked, young adults recognized that
calcium is essential for kids and older adults but not
how important it was for them. (5) Calcium is important
for all ages! Your Pflugerville chiropractor is ready to talk
just how important it is for you.
We look forward to your next Pflugerville visit soon at Pflugerville Wellness Center!
