Pain Relief with Pensacola Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center incorporates Cox Technic into the Pensacola treatment plan forPensacola back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height along with a 28% increase in area and a decrease in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Pensacola chiropractic practice) eases neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly utilized to control 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. Fantastic news! A new rat study confirms that using Cox Technic delivers short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center chooses to use it with our Pensacola 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 Pensacola chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system when it’s upset by pain.

Your Pensacola chiropractor is ready to talk just how important it is for you.
