Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Peoria chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the curious
patient!) concerning which position is most advantageous.
For the Peoria back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Peoria spine
specialist, prone is certainly preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
ADVANTAGES OF PRONE TREATMENT
Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture bases its Peoria
chiropractic treatment on research. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture keeps abreast of13
new spinal care research. In a recent 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 may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture perceives
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture applies a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented 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 Peoria
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
document that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table during
Cox Technic can be instructed reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor in
much the same way as by another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Peoria chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the appropriate forces allows the
best opportunity to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Peoria low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Peoria chiropractor and alleviating
to the Peoria chiropractic patients at Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture!
