Pain Relief with Plymouth Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology incorporates Cox Technic into the Plymouth treatment plan forPlymouth back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height as well as a 28% increase in area and a decrease in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Plymouth chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is often utilized to manage low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, alleviates pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Great news! A new study with rats reaffirms that using Cox Technic offers short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology uses it with our Plymouth back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation influences pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of Plymouth chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it is affected by pain.

Plymouth Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”

Funny how recommendations are always for somebody else! A Canadian study shared that, when asked, young adults recognized that calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not how important it was for them. (5) Calcium is key for all ages! Your Plymouth chiropractor is ready to discuss just how valuable it is for you.

We look forward to your next Plymouth visit soon at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology!
