Pain Relief with Carrolltown Chiropractic Care: Cox
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation incorporates Cox Technic into the
Carrolltown treatment plan forCarrolltown back pain relief. Cox Technic
research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height along with a 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg.
Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this Carrolltown chiropractic practice) diminishes
neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often comes
with low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low
back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust,
non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly
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 provides short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation uses it with our Carrolltown back pain patients!
Further, spinal manipulation affects
pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin
along with interleukin and cortisol (“the stress
hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That’s a goal of Carrolltown
chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system
when it’s upset by pain.

Carrolltown Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”
Funny how recommendations are
always for someone else! A Canadian study reported
that, when questioned, young adults recognized that
calcium is important for kids and older adults but not
how important it was for them. (5) Calcium is important
for all ages! Your Carrolltown chiropractor is ready to discuss
just how important it is for you.
We look forward to seeing
you soon at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation!
