Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Lynchburg chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the interested
patient!) as to which position is most beneficial.
For the Lynchburg back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Lynchburg spine
specialist, prone is definitely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Palmer Chiropractic Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research agrees!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Palmer Chiropractic Center centers its Lynchburg
chiropractic treatment on research. Palmer Chiropractic Center keeps up with
current 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 reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction could lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center perceives
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Palmer Chiropractic Center is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Palmer Chiropractic Center utilizes a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Lynchburg
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 during
Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Palmer Chiropractic Center. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor in
much the same way as by another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Lynchburg chiropractor is so trained. Applying
the proper forces makes available the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Lynchburg low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Lynchburg chiropractor and alleviating
to the Lynchburg chiropractic patients at Palmer Chiropractic Center!
