Pain Relief with Carrolltown Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

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 plus a 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recognizes the good of this increase.

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 contrasted with 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 shared 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!
