Carrolltown KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH COX® FLEXION-DISTRACTION

Carrolltown knee pain is a pain that Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees a lot. Pain medications and surgical options abound while a new non-surgical chiropractic protocol is showing good results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic all the time for Carrolltown back pain and neck pain relief - were amended for application with knee pain. They are shown to be of help in lessening knee pain. Overall, the mean pain scores for knee pain patients fell from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores fell even more from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores dropped from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. None of the patients had any adverse side-effects. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience with treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation’s Carrolltown chiropractic care! Carrolltown knee pain sufferers are welcomed to experience this gentle, relieving Carrolltown knee pain treatment!

 

Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

All of us can gain from stronger hip abductors, and Carrolltown elder folks gain even more. A new article reports that chronic low back pain sufferers typically have hip abductor weakness, too. (Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation agrees as this pairing is seen frequently in this Carrolltown chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises relieved pain and improved function for a set of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation will give you some hip strengthening exercises you can do in the convenience of your own home alongside the Carrolltown chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to get such relief yourself.
