Pain Relief with Plainville Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

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

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Plainville chiropractic practice) diminishes neuropathic pain, pain that goes 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 used to control low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, relieves 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 akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s why Layden Chiropractic chooses to use it with our Plainville 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 Plainville chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system when it is upset by pain.

Plainville 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 knew that calcium is important for kids and older adults but not how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is important for all ages! Your Plainville chiropractor is ready to talk just how valuable it is for you.

We look forward to your next Plainville visit soon at Layden Chiropractic!
