Pain Relief with Manchester Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

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 as well as a 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries recognizes the good of this increase.

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.
