Severna Park Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression. It’s popular today in back pain management for back pain relief. Back And Neck Care Center knows our Severna Park chiropractic patients hear about spinal decompression, too. Back And Neck Care Center shares this discussion about Severna Park spinal decompression and how Back And Neck Care Center addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.

Severna Park Spinal Decompression Defined

Spinal decompression is defined by the well-known website “WebMD” as a gentle stretching of the spine that changes the force and position of the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs. How? The negative pressure generated by spinal decompression over time may assist by reducing herniated discs and taking pressure off of the spinal nerves and other spinal structures and allow water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to get into the discs so they can heal. (12) Back And Neck Care Center concurs with this description and seeks to do just that with Severna Park chiropractic care via spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.

Severna Park Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic

Cox Technic used by Back And Neck Care Center is well documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It’s effective. That’s why Back And Neck Care Center uses it. A team of chiropractic and medical researchers and research-center based as well as private-practice clinicians design the studies, participate in them, and publish the outcomes of these multi-disciplinary, federally funded, multi-facility, randomized clinical control trials using the published protocols documented in textbooks and journals. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Biomechanical Outcomes (6)

Spinal decompression via Cox Technic biomechanically creates lumbar spine intradiscal pressure decreases to as low as -192 mmHg and increases in intervertebral foramen nerve opening area by 28% and disc height by 2mm. (7) Spinal decompression via Cox Technic allows for cervical spine intradiscal pressure drops of as much as 168 kPa (kilopascals) which is about 1260 mmHg. (13) Cox Technic spinal decompression reduces pressure on the spinal discs and nerves.

Clinical Outcomes

Severna Park chiropractic spinal decompression with Cox Technic produces back pain relief for lumbar spine back pain patients in an average of 12 visits and 29 days. (8) In the 1000 cases study, 91% of participating chiropractic patients found relief in less than 90 days, preventing back pain sufferers from entering the more costly as well as life-altering category of chronic pain. (8) This type of Severna Park spinal decompression eases radiculopathy (leg pain) commandingly when put up against medical conservative care, mainly physical therapy (PT). (9) Additionally, patients treated with spinal decompression as Cox Technic took less care (3) and described less pain (4) in the year following the study than did the PT patients.
