Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Manchester chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the interested
patient!) as to which position is most beneficial.
For the Manchester back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Manchester spine
specialist, prone is definitely favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries centers its Manchester
chiropractic treatment on research. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries keeps abreast of13
new spinal care research. In a new 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 might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries sees
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries uses a distinctive form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Manchester
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
explain that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table with
Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries. This means a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor like another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Manchester chiropractor is so trained. Using
the appropriate forces makes available the
best chance to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Manchester low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Manchester chiropractor and relieving
to the Manchester chiropractic patients at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries!
