Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Pflugerville chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the curious
patient!) about which position is most beneficial.
For the Pflugerville back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Pflugerville spine
specialist, prone is surely favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Pflugerville Wellness Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Pflugerville Wellness Center grounds its Pflugerville
chiropractic treatment on research. Pflugerville Wellness Center keeps abreast of13
new spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction could lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Pflugerville Wellness Center sees
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Pflugerville Wellness Center is well aware that
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
Pflugerville Wellness Center utilizes an
exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Pflugerville
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
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 instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Pflugerville Wellness Center. 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
Pflugerville chiropractor is so trained. Using
the proper forces allows the
best opportunity to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Pflugerville low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research projects. That
is exciting to your Pflugerville chiropractor and relieving
to the Pflugerville chiropractic patients at Pflugerville Wellness Center!
