Face up? Face down? When treating 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!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville bases its St. Francisville
chiropractic treatment on research. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville keeps up with
current spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville sees
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville utilizes an
exceptional 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 applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your St. Francisville
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
document that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table with
Cox Technic can be taught reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor just like another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
St. Francisville chiropractor is so trained. Applying
the appropriate forces makes available the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for St. Francisville low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research projects. That
is thrilling to your St. Francisville chiropractor and alleviating
to the St. Francisville chiropractic patients at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville!
