Pain Relief with Lynchburg Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Palmer Chiropractic Center incorporates Cox Technic into the Lynchburg treatment plan forLynchburg back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height along with 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Lynchburg chiropractic practice) eases neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly utilized to reduce low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, relieves pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with those without leg pain. Great news! A new rat study reaffirms that using Cox Technic delivers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why Palmer Chiropractic Center chooses to use it with our Lynchburg back pain patients!

Further, 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 Lynchburg chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it is affected by pain.
