Pain Relief with Colorado Springs Chiropractic Care: Cox
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR incorporates Cox Technic into the
Colorado Springs treatment plan forColorado Springs back pain relief. Cox Technic
research demonstrates 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.
Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR recognizes the good of this
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. Great 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 your next Colorado Springs visit soon at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR!
