Pain Relief with St. Francisville Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville incorporates Cox Technic into the St. Francisville treatment plan forSt. Francisville back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows 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 raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this St. Francisville chiropractic practice) alleviates neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly 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 contrasted with those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A new rat study confirms that using Cox Technic delivers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville chooses to use it with our St. Francisville back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation affects 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’s a goal of St. Francisville chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system when it is upset by pain.
