Colorado Springs Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression. It’s ”in” today in back pain management for back pain relief. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients are curious about spinal decompression, too. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR shares this discussion about Colorado Springs spinal decompression and how The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.

Colorado Springs Spinal Decompression Defined

Spinal decompression is defined by the oft-referenced website “WebMD” as a gentle stretching of the spine that changes the force and position of the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs. How? The negative pressure generated by spinal decompression over time may assist by reducing herniated discs and taking pressure off of the spinal nerves and other spinal structures and allow water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to get into the discs so they can heal. (12) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR agrees with this explanation and aspires to do just that with Colorado Springs chiropractic care via spinal manipulation with the chiropractic method known as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.

Colorado Springs Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic

Cox Technic offered at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is well documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It is effective. That is why The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR chooses to apply it. A team of chiropractic and medical researchers and research-center based as well as private-practice clinicians design the studies, participate in them, and publish the outcomes of these multi-disciplinary, federally funded, multi-facility, randomized clinical control trials using the published protocols documented in textbooks and journals. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Biomechanical Outcomes (6)

Spinal decompression via Cox Technic biomechanically creates lumbar spine intradiscal pressure falls to as low as -192 mmHg and increases in intervertebral foramen nerve opening area by 28% and disc height by 2mm. (7) Spinal decompression via Cox Technic allows for cervical spine intradiscal pressure drops of as much as 168 kPa (kilopascals) which is about 1260 mmHg. (13) Cox Technic spinal decompression takes pressure off the spinal discs and nerves.

Clinical Outcomes

Colorado Springs chiropractic spinal decompression with Cox Technic produces back pain relief for lumbar spine back pain patients in an average of 12 visits and 29 days. (8) In the 1000 cases study, 91% of participating chiropractic patients found relief in less than 90 days, keeping back pain sufferers from entering the more costly as well as life-changing category of chronic pain. (8) This type of Colorado Springs spinal decompression reduces radiculopathy (leg pain) superiorly when put up against medical conservative care, mainly physical therapy (PT). (9) Additionally, patients treated with spinal decompression as Cox Technic needed less care (3) and described less pain (4) in the following year of the study than did the PT patients.
