Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Pensacola chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the curious
patient!) concerning which position is most beneficial.
For the Pensacola 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 Pensacola spine
specialist, prone is certainly favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research agrees!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center grounds its Pensacola
chiropractic treatment on research. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center keeps abreast of13
new 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 reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction could lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center utilizes an
exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Pensacola
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
explain that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table with
Cox Technic can be taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center. This means a patient can be treated by one proficient chiropractor in much the
same way as by another proficient chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Pensacola chiropractor is so trained. Using
the proper forces sets up the
best chance to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Pensacola low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Pensacola chiropractor and relieving
to the Pensacola chiropractic patients at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center!
