Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or low back pain that is a question for your St. Francisville chiropractor and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the curious patient!) about which position is most advantageous. For the St. Francisville 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 St. Francisville spine specialist, prone is certainly desired as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered. At Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville prone spinal care is our back pain relief department, and research agrees!
