Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Plainville chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the inquisitive
patient!) regarding which position is most advantageous.
For the Plainville 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 Plainville spine
specialist, prone is certainly preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Layden Chiropractic prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Layden Chiropractic grounds its Plainville
chiropractic treatment on research. Layden Chiropractic 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 found that a
hallmark of spinal traction might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Layden Chiropractic sees
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Layden Chiropractic is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Layden Chiropractic applies an
exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Plainville
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and mobile 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 with
Cox Technic can be taught reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Layden Chiropractic. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor like another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Plainville chiropractor is trained in this. Applying
the appropriate forces allows the
best chance to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Plainville low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research projects. That
is exciting to your Plainville chiropractor and alleviating
to the Plainville chiropractic patients at Layden Chiropractic!
