Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Plymouth chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the curious
patient!) concerning which position is most beneficial.
For the Plymouth back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Plymouth spine
specialist, prone is surely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research agrees!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology bases its Plymouth
chiropractic treatment on research. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology keeps up with
new spinal care research. In a recent study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position brought about immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology perceives
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology knows
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology utilizes a special 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 Plymouth
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
state 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 Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology. This means a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor in
much the same way as by another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Plymouth chiropractor is trained in this. Applying
the appropriate forces makes available the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Plymouth low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research projects. That
is thrilling to your Plymouth chiropractor and relieving
to the Plymouth chiropractic patients at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology!
