Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Colorado Springs chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the interested
patient!) as to which position is most beneficial.
For the Colorado Springs 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 Colorado Springs spine
specialist, prone is definitely favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research approves!
ADVANTAGES OF PRONE TREATMENT
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR centers its Colorado Springs
chiropractic treatment on research. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR keeps up with
new spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position brought about immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a
hallmark of spinal traction could lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR notes
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows
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
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR uses an
exceptional 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 Colorado Springs
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
document that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table during
Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR. 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
Colorado Springs chiropractor is so trained. Applying
the appropriate forces sets up the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Colorado Springs low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research projects. That
is exciting to your Colorado Springs chiropractor and alleviating
to the Colorado Springs chiropractic patients at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR!
