Manchester Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression. It’s ”in” today in back pain management for back pain relief. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows our Manchester chiropractic patients are curious about spinal decompression, too. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries shares this discussion about Manchester spinal decompression and how Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.

Manchester Spinal Decompression Defined

Spinal decompression is defined by the oft-referenced website “WebMD” as a gentle stretching of the spine that changes the force and position of the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs. How? The negative pressure produced from spinal decompression over time may help reduce herniated discs and take pressure off of the spinal nerves and other spinal structures and allow water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to get into the discs so they can heal. (12) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries agrees with this explanation and aspires to do just that with Manchester chiropractic care via spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.

Manchester Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic

Cox Technic offered at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is well documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It is effective. That is why Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries uses it. A team of chiropractic and medical researchers and research-center based as well as private-practice clinicians design the studies, participate in them, and publish the outcomes of these multi-disciplinary, federally funded, multi-facility, randomized clinical control trials using the published protocols documented in textbooks and journals. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Biomechanical Outcomes (6)

Spinal decompression via Cox Technic biomechanically creates lumbar spine intradiscal pressure falls to as low as -192 mmHg and increases in intervertebral foramen nerve opening area by 28% and disc height by 2mm. (7) Spinal decompression via Cox Technic allows for cervical spine intradiscal pressure drops of as much as 168 kPa (kilopascals) which is about 1260 mmHg. (13) Cox Technic spinal decompression takes pressure off the spinal discs and nerves.

Clinical Outcomes

Manchester chiropractic spinal decompression with Cox Technic produces back pain relief for lumbar spine back pain patients in an average of 12 visits and 29 days. (8) In the 1000 cases study, 91% of participating chiropractic patients found relief in less than 90 days, curbing back pain sufferers from crossing over into the more high-priced as well as life-changing category of chronic pain. (8) This type of Manchester spinal decompression alleviates radiculopathy (leg pain) superiorly compared to medical conservative care, primarily physical therapy (PT). (9) Additionally, patients treated with spinal decompression as Cox Technic obtained less care (3) and described less pain (4) in the following year of the study than did the PT patients.
