Pain Relief with Colorado Springs Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR incorporates Cox Technic into the Colorado Springs treatment plan forColorado Springs 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Colorado Springs chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often comes with 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 regularly 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 confirms that using Cox Technic produces short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR chooses to use it with our Colorado Springs back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation affects pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That’s a goal of Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system when it’s upset by pain.

Colorado Springs Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”

Curious how recommendations are always for someone else! A Canadian study reported that, when questioned, young adults recognized that calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is key for all ages! Your Colorado Springs chiropractor is ready to talk just how important it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR!
