Pain Relief with Manchester Chiropractic Care: Cox
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries incorporates Cox Technic into the
Manchester treatment plan forManchester back pain relief. Cox Technic
research shows a 17% increase in disc height plus a 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg.
Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this Manchester chiropractic practice) relieves
neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low
back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust,
non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is often
used to reduce 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 compared to those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A
new rat study reaffirms that using Cox
Technic offers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries chooses to use
it with our Manchester back pain patients!
Also, spinal manipulation influences
pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin
along with interleukin and cortisol (“the stress
hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That’s a goal of Manchester
chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system
when it’s distressed by pain.

Manchester Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”
Peculiar how recommendations are
always for someone else! A Canadian study reported
that, when asked, young adults knew that
calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not
how important it was for them. (5) Calcium is key
for all ages! Your Manchester chiropractor is ready to talk
just how valuable it is for you.
We look forward to seeing
you soon at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries!
