Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Carrolltown chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) regarding which position is most advantageous.
For the Carrolltown back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Carrolltown spine
specialist, prone is certainly desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research approves!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation centers its Carrolltown
chiropractic treatment on research. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation keeps up with
current spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position resulted in 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation notes
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation applies 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 Carrolltown
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
note that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table during
Cox Technic can be taught reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one proficient chiropractor in much the
same way as by another proficient chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Carrolltown chiropractor is so trained. Using
the proper forces sets up the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Carrolltown low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research projects. That
is thrilling to your Carrolltown chiropractor and relieving
to the Carrolltown chiropractic patients at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation!
